Broken Arrow (1996) (part 6 of 6)

During this, Kelly falls off the train, but hangs on. Now is as good a time as any to mention that this was both the beginning, as well as the beginning of the end of Howie Long’s film career. After this, he made the rather awful Firestorm, and had a few other roles, including a bit part in Booth resident 3000 Miles to Graceland.

It says a lot that the highlight of Long’s acting career outside of this movie was those ads he did with Teri Hatcher.

Broken Arrow (1996) (part 6 of 6)

Upon the train leaving the tunnel, Hale and Terry are ambushed by another random bad guy. Hale gets into a fight with him and ends up hanging on for dear life to the train as he’s scraped along the tracks.

Now alone, Terry aims her gun up at Deakins and the remaining bad guys, but Hale drags her down to safety. Deakins notices the sabotage to his chopper too late, and the helicopter explodes the moment the pilot starts it up. Deakins is now really mad, but Kelly tells him to disarm the nuke, since they’ll never get clear of the train in time now.

    Great recap, but I am pretty sure he was a rogue pilot, and not a rouge pilot.

    Didn’t look very blushy. :)

    That whole ‘rouge pilot’ thing must be a nodding reference to don’t ask, don’t tell.

  • so be it

    I’m pretty sure the “would you mind not shooting at the thermonuclear weapon” line was reused in Armageddon with a little change to “would you mind not tapping on the thermonuclear weapon” if memory serves. Of course, Travolta’s version is a lot funnier.

    Terry must be hid a gun within her pants

    Is Terry put a gun in her pants?

    Despite a film like this or a remake of “Little Women,” I think Samantha Mathis’s career was doomed by “Super Mario Brothers.”
