Where was the train in this film called Hostage Train???
Hostage Train reminded me Air Force One in some points...the hostages' room, the terrorists' visit in that room, the hero who has his wife to save...but the funny thing is that you see the train for about 30 seconds...so why did they call it Hostage Train? The backgrounds don't create any mood, and the acting doesn't help the thing. Judge Reinhold isn't expressive, and his acting is awful as a cop who has to save the day. Michael Sarrazin played in masterpieces (I am sarcastic) such as The Arrival 2, and, in this film, he plays one of the worst bad guys I saw in a movie in my whole life...the special effects are funny because they're so fake, it's crazy...the explosions will make you laugh. The whole thing is boring, and I didn't even have fun watching it...it seems to last three hours but its running time is only one and a half hours...The story... A cop with a bad reputation at his police department has to kill the terrorists who took a train full of rich hostages. Replace the word "train" in the last sentence by "airplane" or "bus" and you get the scenario of another stupid action movie...Again, it's the usual storyline repeated with even less budget...it's bad...Very stupid and very boring. 2/10
