Editorial Reviews

The ever-limber Jean-Claude Van Damme stars in the entertainingly over-the-top action flick Derailed. The plot has to do with a deadly virus on a runaway train, but that's hardly the point--what makes the movie fly along is the ridiculous yet entirely enjoyable escalation of plot devices: not only is Van Damme on the train to protect a beautiful high-tech thief (Laura Elena Harring, Mulholland Drive), not only is the train hijacked by terrorists, not only is the virus actually released into the train's ventilation system, not only is the engine on fire, but Van Damme's family came on board to surprise him on his birthday and are now being used as pawns by the terrorists. Derailed is also loaded with spectacle: car chases, shootouts, explosions, a train collision, hand-to-hand combat, and Van Damme riding a motorcycle on top of the train--you really couldn't ask for more. Sheer trashy fun. --Bret Fetzer

1.0 out of 5 stars Rock bottom with a bang. January 19, 2005
By Ollie
I hated this Van Damme movie. I own all his others but I could not bring myself to add this to my Van Damme collection. I found this to be a very bad movie with very low production values. There was nothing in this movie for me other than annoyance. Very poor direction, cheap and laughable special effects, particularly the exterior train sequences where the train looks like it is made of wood, illuminated with a light bulb from the inside and pulled along by a piece of string. Bad lighting, badly filmed, executed and edited martial arts and action sequences. Laughable acting performances from all including Van Damme. Very bad audio post production special effects to such an extent that at times you can't hear character dialogue. I got the impression that a lot of this was filmed in very low lighting conditions to hide the cheap sets and obvious poor special effects. Basically the movie is a cheap rip off version from a mix of Under Siege 2 with Steven Seagal and The Cassandra Crossing with the late Richard Harris. I would say to anyone thinking of buying this to go and rent it on the cheap first before splashing out your cash. You might be thankful you did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Terrible but a great laugh! February 8, 2004
Van Damme is back and his movies are getting worse . . . sure he has made some great ones like SUDDEN DEATH and KICKBOXER, but this one, from the people that brought you CROCODILE and SHARK ATTACK(and its sequels!) is so bad it's hilarious. Van Damme plays a government agent(AGAIN?!) who has to escort a prisoner across Europe by train, but in the process terrorists steal and unleash a bioweapon on board which she is transporting. And to add to the complications, Van Damme has his family, or the usual oh-the-humanity interest on board. The authorities, fearing a Europe-wide plague from the dealy smallpox bioweapon, attempt to destroy the train. Sound familiar? A rip-off of the far superior CASSANDRA CROSSING with hints of the equally superior UNDER SIEGE 2 thrown in. However, the enjoyment comes from the incredibly bad special effects that you will see. Check out the toy helicopter chasing a train set through papier-mache mountains! Exploding cars on the autoracks that blow up as soon as a bullet hits them, lack of route knowledege through Austria by the producers(all main lines in Austria have overhead wires and do not operate Bulgarian diesel locos), two toy train wrecks set alight by a kid with a match or so it looks and horrendously bad acting and dialogue that makes bad movies like BEYOND THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE and SHARK ATTACK 3 look brilliant. So at least it's funny. Recomended if you love dreck and want something to compliment that bad movie cheese-fest you are putting on!

3.0 out of 5 stars worth watching October 16, 2002
By A Customer
Van Damme has had some great action flicks in his time and i'm sad to say that his movies seem to be getting worse and worse as the years go on. Yet i still put faith in the man to turn out another great movie.
Derailed is about 1hr and 20 mins of Van Damme kicks and explosions. Although this movie wasn't as good as i hoped it's still worth checking out. The idea behind the movie is great for a Van Damme action vehicle yet it needed some more fight scenes and better special effects. The special effects were so bad i actually started laughing, and i'm not kidding. That was part of the fun of the movie though. If you're a Van Damme fan i think you'll enjoy this movie, and if your not still check it out, it's still entertaining.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Van Damme Movie EVER! November 27, 2003
By Hani
I was looking forward to seeing this movie, my friend told me he saw a new Van Damme flick in the video store titled 'Derailed'. I am a Van Damme Fan, but after getting this film on DVD it hit me like a book it was horrible! It was SUCKED! I own Under Seige 2 and I liked it, there is NO COMPARISON. What hurt the most is how happy I was when I got the DVD, and how much I was looking foward to seeing it before and after I got it.
Derailed is the worst Van Damme movie AND the worst MOVIE I have ever seen and yes I am also a Van Damme fan.
Jean really stuffed up BIG TIME with this flick.
On another note, Van Damme's son starred in this movie aswell, he is a good lookin' kid, has his fathers good looks and skills.
Jean should be ashamed of himself! Putting his son in a terrible first flick like this.
0 star film:-
In conclusion, dont even pick up or look at the packet if you see it in a store.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stop the train. I wanna get off . . . May 4, 2003
Okay, okay, I admit it. To all the world (well, users) I am a BIG Van Damme fan. Yeah, I have been taking the heat on this for a number of years now, but I can't help loving the guy. From the guitar-twanging thrills of HARD TARGET to the vicious (and balletic) brawling of KICKBOXER and BLOODSPORT, 'Van Dammage' has constantly entertained and kept my faith in bad action cinema alive. Even though he seems to be appearing in Direct-to-video movies now, he still has the knack for picking interesting riffs on the action genre. Check out his collaborations with two of Hong Kongs' finest: Tsui Hark (the underrated DOUBLE TEAM and KNOCK OFF) and Ringo Lam (MAXIMUM RISK and the killer comeback movie REPLICANT). These movies have shown his ability to choose difficult and 'Non-Hollywood' product, opting to make something far more different than formulaic.
Having said all of that in support of my hero, here comes DERAILED. A near train wreck of a movie (Cliched I know, but I'm sure I stole that line from a friend of mine.), it ambles along like a dodgy episode of an old TV show, with awful production values and terrible visual effects. The dull story is a lazy retread of DIE HARD and UNDER SIEGE 2. A virus has been leaked out on a train by some dastardly terrorists, and only Van Damme can stop them before the world(?) is taken down by smallpox. And, er, thats it. Okay, there may be a little more going on, but from the bad acting, uneven direction and lack of genuine suspense, all you want to do is stop the movie, eject the disc and watch LIONHEART again. Maybe, just maybe, this total waste of time will be just a figment of my imagination.
This movie is that bad.

This is an okay movie but appeared to be low budget or something. Kind of drawn out and slow moving at times. Read more

Usual Van Damme fare. Shallow with lots of action, decent plot and predictable outcome. One of his better ones, however. Good entertainment value.
