Under Siege 2

Under Siege 2 (1995)

8 corrected entries

Corrected entry: Dane needed the train to be moving to cloak his satellite, but the entire braintrust of the military, and Casey Ryback, didn't think to simply cut power to the third rail to stop the train.

Ray Gordon 9827

Correction: It's not an electric train. It's pulled by diesel engines.

Thomas Norris

Corrected entry: Captain Garza is a Navy Captain, and an aide to the Admiral in Under Siege I, which takes place some 3 years earlier. In U/SII, he is still a Captain, and still an aide to the Admiral (highly unlikely that his tour of duty would last 3 years), while Casey Rybeck has gone from being an enlisted E-7 to becoming a commissioned officer, and promoted at least one pay grade.

Correction: Ryback had also single-handedly stopped a bunch of terrorists and saved a US battleship from falling into enemy hands. Surely that would merit some form of reward, such as a hefty promotion?

Twotall

Corrected entry: When Ryback enters his message about the train being hijacked into his PDA he faxes it to the Mile High Cafe and signs it Ryback. When the cook at the cafe gets the fax there is no signature on it.

MCKD

Correction: Penn actually cut the power in mid-transmission.

Corrected entry: When the two trains crash into each other at the end if you look closely you will see that Ryback's train is derailed before it actually hits, causing the other train to hit it on the side, rather than the front.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: It isn't derailed at all and they do hit head on.

Corrected entry: In the scene were Ryback jumps from the rock back onto the train, he lands on his feet and doesn't fall back. In actuality, with the train traveling even just 30-40 mph, and facing the way he was, Ryback would be slammed on his back instantaneously when he his feet first touched the train. Ryback would have to be running along on the rocks at approximately the same speed of the train before he jumped, in order to land on the train and keep his feet.

Correction: He does fall backwards but gets up very quickly. If you slow the film down you will see it.

Corrected entry: In the same scene where Penn's henchmen find out that Ryback is on top of the front carriage, the men in that carriage start firing at him. Under fire from the bad guys, Ryback pulls out a machine gun and fires back. Where the hell does Ryback get this gun from? Before he approaches the carriage you clearly see him carrying no other weapon besides his pistol. He has killed two bad guys before this and may have taken their weapons, but you never see the machine gun on him when he is under fire. Magically he pulls one out and fires back.

Correction: Ryback grabs the gun from the black guy's hand.

Corrected entry: How does a portable radar device inside a metal moving train in the mountains detect an F-117 stealth fighter, which has a radar cross section the size of a bumble-bee?

Correction: The F-117 is not detected by a radar device on the train, it is detected by the satellite above. It detected the F-117's by the air disturbed by their passage.

Corrected entry: When Ryback enters his message about the train being hijacked into his PDA he FAXes it to the Mile High Cafe. However, listed immediately before the Mile High Cafe on the PDA's phone list is Seal TAC. It's implied early in the movie that Ryback is now a Lieutenant in the SEALs. Wouldn't it make more sense to send a message of a hijacked train to the SEALs instead of a restaurant?

Correction: All things considered, the Seal TAC listing might be a fake in order to throw off anyone who would happen to get a hold of his PDA.

Mistakes

After the train comes to a complete and lurching stop, the porter is shown being thrown forward into the bad guys as a lot of baggage falls all over the place. In the final fight scene as Ryback is entering the dining car, all the tables have all their place settings perfectly intact.

Trivia

When the satellite destroys the fertiliser plant in China we see a 2 second shot of a steel tower collapsing into a ball of flames. This exact shot was used in one of Steven Segal's other films: On Deadly Ground.
