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.
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.
