    Atomic Train

Rating:

Disaster:

Nuclear

Plot Summary:

A nuclear warhead is smuggled aboard a freight train in order to avoid costly insurance and shipping costs. Without warning, the trains brakes fail, and suddenly the train is a runaway that is almost certain to derail. The train, headed towards Denver, eventually derails and will detonate from the fiery mess that surrounds it, unless someone can stop it in time...

Comments:

The tension and excitement in 'Atomic Train' is very well maintained throughout and the characters are easy to watch. The only let down was that the main characters were not particularly engaging or exciting and the dialogue was a little dull.

Special Effects:

The special effects, although brief, were most impressive and well above what I would have expected from a TV disaster film. The effects shots were clear and easy to understand, absent of any obscure angle explosions or stock footage. Definitely, a stand out effort. Watch for the panoramic nuclear shot of Denver.
