The Peacemaker

The Peacemaker (1997)

Ending / spoiler

(4 votes)

The Serb leader kept a warhead and travels to NY to detonate it at the UN summit. Nicole Kidman and George Clooney catch him before he gets there, and the bomb detonates but they damage it enough that it doesn't go nuclear - the explosion and radiation is contained within a church. They hook up together for a beer.


Factual error: When LtCol Devoe enlists the help of the US Air Force in Turkey to intercept the truck carrying the nuclear warheads, the squadron is operating Eurocopter AS 565 Panther multirole helicopters. The USAF does not and has never had AS 565's in their inventory.

Question: Wouldn't they know something was up when the train explosion wasn't as huge as it should have been (because many of the bombs were missing, and thus making the explosion smaller)?

Answer: The two train engines colliding caused the explosions, all the other cars derailed. All the warheads were carefully packed and disarmed.
