Under Siege 2

Plot hole: Now why the heck is one of the stealth fighters anywhere near the train? Stealth fighters use advanced targeting and do not need to be anywhere near their target, yet in the movie the one fighter is so close to the train when it gets blown up that it looks like it's on a collision course.

Plot hole: When Casey determines to hot-wire the Chevy truck, he raises the hood, grabs two bare wires on the passenger side of the engine, rubs them together, and the truck starts. However, this is patently impossible since the ignition is in the off position. The engine might crank, assuming he magically found the hot lead to the starter solenoid, but it would not start.

Plot hole: It doesn't make sense that Penn would shoot at the black suspension wires to break them off the train. His own men were originally on them to get to Ryback (who was barely hanging on the side of the cliff), and Penn never knew Ryback killed his men or that he was now the one now hanging on the wire.

Suggested correction: Bear in mind that penn wasn't above killing his own men. He shot the guy who was on fire and later took out the mercenary who felt penn screwed up. In other words he's determined to see the mission succeed regardless of any collateral. He suspects there are still people on the ropes and by shooting the ropes, he is eliminating the ryback threat and not wasting time waiting for his own people to return.

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.



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.
