R | | Action, Thriller
Casey Ryback hops on a Colorado to LA train to start a vacation with his niece. Early into the trip, terrorists board the train and use it as a mobile HQ to hijack a top secret destructive US satellite.
Couple scenes had to be cut down for R rating; During the fight with a one eyed terrorist after Ryback cuts the terrorist's wrist their fight concluded with Ryback stabbing the terrorist in the neck causing blood to spurt out which is why you see blood on the terrorists chin and sweater when he falls out of the cupboard. The climatic fight between Ryback and Penn was also more graphic and brutal, at one point Ryback forces Penn's face onto a hot cooker before they fall down the stairs, which is why Penn has a large red mark on his left cheek in the rest of the scene.
Tom, thanks for coming.
When the satellite fires and when it self-destructs in the end, mechanical/exploding sounds are heard. There cannot be any sound in the vacuum of space.
Although the UK cinema version was intact, all video releases suffered 2 minutes 1 sec of BBFC cuts for "pervasive and gloating" violence. Among the cuts were shots of limb breaks, the red-hot poker in the eyes scene, lengthy shots of people on fire, the slicing off of Dane's fingers in the helicopter door, closeup shots of ingredients used in bomb making equipment, and heavy edits to all scenes featuring closeups and glamorized use of knives. The uncut version has recently been shown on UK television.
