Goofs

When the two trains are approaching, the leader of the terrorist group is shown emerging from the back door of a passenger car to view the stopped train in the middle of the bridge ahead of them. The only problem is, the train on the tracks ahead of them can only be seen from the locomotive at the front of the train. To make matters worse, the terrorist leader was going out the BACK DOOR of the car, so he was looking in the opposite direction. Not only could he not see the train straight ahead from anywhere but the locomotive, but he wasn't even facing the correct direction to see it. See more »

Good Standard Action Flick!
2 April 2001 | by LilacQueenSee all my reviews

I liked this movie. It moves quickly with enough action to keep you on your toes. It actually has a plot. While the plot is a standard one it is interesting and handled fairly well. There is a twist in the ending and not the one I was expecting. Jeff Fahey turns in his usual solid performance.

If you want an action thriller to take your mind off your troubles this is it. I think it is a cut above your standard B movie. It's been done better but mostly worse. Get out the popcorn and enjoy this one.
