Brian Genesse is a fantastic B-movie action star

"This film is a great b-movie action flick; far superior than Van Damme's "Derailed" from a year earlier. The main character in this movie is also one of the stars from my favorite movie ever, Operation Delta Force 3. But in this movie, Brian Genesse is alone as he tackles the ruthless terrorists one at a time, in the tradition of Steven Seagal and Bruce Willis. It was also nice to see Genesse's natural fighting abilities when he was battling the bad guy boss at the end of the film. Without any obvious stuntman, Genesse handles himself quite well.
The final scene of the movie is awesome as his Mexican Federale friend hands him the Tequila bottle for the second time and poor Brian is still out of breath after his first swig. A wide eyed Brian mutters "My turn?", as he grabs the bottle from his friend, not quite ready to take another gulp of the potent liquor.
Nice action movie. After seeing it, I am going to buy it."

"Bryan Genesse from TV's Street Justice Stars in Grade B Actioner about a group of deranged criminals take over a train whith a renagade CIA Operative on Board. Usual action no big surprises but the viewer gets to see some great action sequences on and off the Train. The Only problem i have with the film is the ending was too incoherent It seemed like the director wanted the movie to end in a lame way. The film's strong point is Bentley Mitchum the villian of the film took great relish in portraying a psycho mouthy killer with a meanstreak who gets what he derserves. Not a bad film i have seen much worse in the past. At least this film can hold my attention."

"Filled with every cliche imaginable, DEATH TRAIN is one of those films shot in Bulgaria that tries to emulate both the US and Mexico. Action star Bryan Genessee is starting to rival Stephen Baldwin in his low key, somewhat soporific performances. Bentley Mitchum fares somewhat better as the truly psychotic madman who is holding a trainload of caricatures hostage. We have the asthmatic priest; the pregnant lady; the crippled boy; the young newlyweds, etc. The henchmen are just as bad as Mitchum including the requisite female who is just as dangerous as her male counterparts. The action sequences are tired and unimaginative; and the director uses several of the same scenes over and over in trying to fill the movie's extended length. Few movies have ever made walking on top of a moving train look so easy. Avoid unless you have nothing else to watch."
