When terrorists hijack a train with an atomic bomb, the race is on to prevent nuclear meltdown. Pierce Brosnan (The World in Not Enough) leads an all-cast - including Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings) - in this gripping adaptation of the Alistair MacLean novel.
Dissident Russian general (Lee) is conspiring to restore the Soviet Union to superpower status by placing a nuclear bomb on a train bound for Iraq, and forcing the Russian army to invade the middle east country, a prelude to all-out world war. UN Anti-Crime operatives Mike Graham (Brosnan) and spunky Sabrina Carver (Alexandra Paul) are entrusted with stopping the train and its deadly cargo, forming a reluctant partnership under the close watch of strike force head, Malcolm Philpott (Patrick Stewart). As an American mercenary shuttles the bomb to its doomsday destination, can these elite agents derail the death train?
The mission is impossible. The consequences deadly.
