Plot Summary
Two trains collide in rural Russia, one of them housing nuclear weapons that go missing after the wreck, and the U.S. government is alerted.

Thomas Devoe (George Clooney) joins Dr. Kelly as they try to track down the warhead-stealing culprits. They learn that Yugoslav terrorist Gavrich (Marcel Iures) has his hands on the weapons, and he's plotting a devastating attack on New York.

    His (George Clooney) rugged good looks spell movie star, but his body language spells Don Knotts, without the wit. show more

    It looks great. The technical credits are impeccable, and Clooney and Kidman negotiate assorted dangers skillfully. But it's mostly spare parts from other thrillers. show more

    The chief terrorist is played nicely with war-weary desperation by Marcel Iures, a Romanian actor with the sucked-in cheeks and ennui of a Jeremy Irons. show more

    This is a GREAT Movie that has been far under rated. The possibility of such events depicted are Scary and Highly Probable in the near future!!! This is a Visionary Account of what will happen in our lifetimes. White Knuckle Thriller throughout the ENTIRE Movie. Highly Recommended by a True Movie Lover, Don Boske Jr.
