Oh, where to begin? This film is just so bad, it's good. It involves a Militia groups trying to hijack a train and plant a nuclear bomb on it. A couple of the hostages on the train are, the senator (Ernie Hudson) and an ATF agent (Jeff Fahey). The whole film feels like it is cruising on autopilot the whole way through. There are no twists, turns, or suprises of any sort. It is just a routine and very dull action film. It can be summed up as the worst action film Steven Seagal never made.
The film takes place on a train, and it is safe to say, that the film, itself is a train wreck. It goes wrong in several ways. Wheather it's the bad acting, lame dialouge, or low budget, that make it seem bad even for a made for tv movie. Clocking in about 90 minutes and change, this film feels like a long 3 hours. If film's pace had been tighter and lost some of the early stuff, this may have been a somewhat more enjoyable experience. That being said, I still do not think the film would have ever been anything more than a Saturday afternoon Action film.
Basically, all the film is, is one big introduction, but no real payoff. I am glad Artisan did not go all out and include several features on the dvd to try to boost sales, because spending any more time with this film would be an endurance test. The full screen transfer is only average at best, showing several signs of grain and print flaws, but it is passable. The Dolby 2.0 is decent enough, but nothing earth shattering. We get absolutely no extras here. Not even a Trailer. If you want to count the scene index, but I don't. I can't recomend this film to anyone, not even those even interested to see how bad a movie can get. Trust me, this is pretty close to being one of the worst films ever made.
