Goofs

In one scene there's a sign stating that the train is crossing the border from Germany to Slovakia. Problem is, the German on the sign is not correct. It says "Achtung, Sie übergehen die Grenze Slowakei", which literally translates to "Caution, you are crossing the border Slovakia". Instead it should read "Achtung, Sie überqueren die Grenze zur Slowakei". Furthermore, the word "übergehen" is indeed a German word, but would not be used in this context. See more »

Poorly done, no real merit
28 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

As others have commented, this is a blatant rip-off of THE CASSANDRA CROSSING (including a bridge climax!), as well as UNDER SIEGE 2. So there is nothing new here, to say the least. In fact, there's a lot that could be considered "old", such as cheesy modelwork and remarkably unexciting chase sequences. The "new" style effects (computer graphics) look equally as bad.

As for the martial arts, they are pretty uninspired for the most part (a lot of simple punches and relatively simple kicks), and are *very* badly directed, with the action in-your-face with the camera jiggling around to boot. These sequences aren't the only ones that don't make much sense in the movie. There are several jumps in the narrative that are jarring, and a few times where characters seem to die and soon afterwards come back to life.

How much lower will Van Damme go?
