. . .and the same for "Unstoppable," with the train balancing on one set of wheels. . .thought no one could have done it worse, but I stand corrected. . .ugh:

From "Mission Impossible;" along with the crazy action, how does the train run with no overhead wires and the pantographs locked down?

Which is crazier? Curving bullets, bullets striking each other in flight (and more than once!), or couplers that hold up half of a derailed train (for a while) that's hanging from a bridge? From "Wanted:"

Well, from some other clips, the whole movie is over the top. . .and how much money do the studios spend on things like this? Sheesh. . .

The Eurostar does operate via 3rd rail in some locations. But none is shown in the film.

It's also against FRA regs to fly a helicopter inside a tunnel... ;)
