Storyline

A waste disposal company has a Russian nuclear bomb to transport, and an employee decides to save money by concealing it on a freight train. The train, also loaded with hazardous and flammable chemicals, suffers a brake failure and becomes a runaway heading for Denver. A wreck would be bad enough, but much, much worse if the bomb goes off. A heroic NTSB investigator boards the train; he and the railwaymen try various ways to stop the train, but nothing works. Meanwhile Denver residents are struggling to collect their families and then leave town, despite rioters and gridlock. Will the train have to be derailed to stop it? If it does derail, will the bomb explode, and if it does, what then? Written by Anonymous

Goofs

The crossbucks at the grade crossing where the school bus stalls on the tracks in the movie's prelude read "RAILWAY CROSSING" on them. These are what the crossbucks at Canadian train crossings originally read, newer ones simply have a plain white crossbuck with a red outline. The standard law for the Amercian crossbucks require the lettering to read "RAILROAD CROSSING" on them. See more »

An hour and a half movie jam-packed into 4 hours!
5 August 1999 | by Videoman-4See all my reviews

I thought the first half of the movie was good enough for a TV movie once you get past the impossible premise. I look at the second half of the movie as two hours of my life I will never get back! The movie is worth renting for the family for a few dollars just so you don't have to sit through all the commercials (it comes to video on Sept. 21). Watch the first half, then turn it off and you'll be O.K., but if you're looking for a high-quality movie, though, you'll need to keep looking.
