Just before the terrorist's train contacts the empty blocking train on the bridge in it's attempt to push it back, the blocking train puts power to the wheels and begins backing up, although it isn't supposed to have anyone in it. Steam is clearly visible escaping from the drive system under the locomotive. See more »

Don't waste your time.
9 October 2000 | by Scorpion ManSee all my reviews

Don't get me wrong on this one Jeff Fahey isn't a bad Actor in fact the cast is mainly made up of good actors who presumably were all having a bad day. What really makes this film as bad as it is is the really cheap special effects. The planes and tanks on maneuvers were actually news footage taken from the Gulf War! Also before every single explosion in the whole film a mine-cart can be seen for a split second. This is because the Film Company spent that much money on actors that it had only enough money for one explosion so with that money they shot the all important exploding mine-cart scene and showed it over and over again. To add to this humiliating display if you watch carefully you never see a handgun fired. This is because the hand guns are really just hand gun shaped hunks of metal carefully shaped to look like hand guns and instead of showing them being fired the camera angle simply shows the person falling over when you hear the bang!
