Detonator is a dud

(2 out of 5 stars)
"Patrick Stewart is in charge of a special unit within the United Nations. He enlists the help of Pierce Brosnan, an old friend who apparently owes him one last favor, to go after a Russian general played by Christopher Lee. Lee has had a German scientist build two nuclear bombs. His purpose is to get them to Iraq and detonate them so the Russian military can come in and easily take over the region, thus restoring Russia to world prominence. His henchmen, led by Ted Levine, take over a train in Germany to transport the bombs. It all sounds slightly better than it plays out.
There are a lot of good actors in this movie cashing a paycheck. They can't do much with the poor dialogue and badly constructed scenes. Being an action movie, there is plenty of shooting and plenty of no one hitting the broad side of a barn. Several attempts at stopping the train fail, leading to hostages being shot. Overall, Detonator is pretty tepid. Not the worst movie you'll ever see, but I don't think its too high on the resume of anyone involved."
