Atomic Train isn’t the worst train movie ever. But it’s pretty darn close. Rife with production blunders so much that the flick has a stigma attached to it, especially from those that work in the rail industry and like to watch train flicks themselves. The story is certainly there for a real barn-burner thriller but unfortunately nothing ever goes beyond the shallow end of the pool and what we’re left with are some pretty locations, cool train footage here and there and 2 hours and 45 minutes of ho-hum boredom horror. Using my Palm Springs Rating System, Atomic Train receives a special award known as the One Palm Tree In The Wrong Place Award…The Sheer Horror!
