Con Express is one of the better direct-to-video
DVDs i have seen in a long time. The characters are
credible, the story moves along at a good pace and
the directing was good for a movie of this type.
In many ways the plot was a combination of Under
Siege 2 and Cliff Hanger. In fact, some of the the
scenes of the jet crashing into the ground seem to
be directly "borrowed" from the latter. Arnold Vosloo
from the Mummy movies is an excellent choice as Russian
general/mobster Simconov. Ursula Karven is luscious. A
bit of macabre humour involves one of Simconov's men -
apparently something of a vampire, he enjoys biting
into and mutilating men he has shot. The film has a surprise
ending that make the story more interesting. A good DVD to see.

Insert pun with word "con" here... Jan. 23 2003
By L. Varnau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
"Con Express" has lots of action in it, which is great because this hides the poor writing and uninteresting characters. Unfortunately, the action isn't enough, and in between stunt pieces and shoot-outs, the audience is tempted to doze off. City Heat Productions isn't really known for producing films of the highest quality, so usually I go easy on them. If this were a big-budget company producing this, I'd be inclined to pan it entirely. But I wasn't expecting much and got a little more than I bargained for. The action is, for the most part, pretty good but nothing competitive with your usual dumb action movie. Flanery and Vosloo are perfectly casted, but everyone else seems to stiff to add any more flow to the movie. Vosloo especially appears to be enjoying himself as an over-the-top bad guy hijacking a train containing deadly chemicals. The film moves fast and contains shades of better movies like Under Siege 2, Con Air, Spy Game, and Speed. If you liked those, you probably won't mind this one too much. Just go easy on it.

Worst movie I ever saw Oct. 11 2004
By Mike Movie Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I have seen some bad ones in my day but this is the worst. I couldn't believe I wasted 2 hours of my life on it.

They literally stole scenes from Runaway Train in this. Not the ideas, they stole the filmed scenes. The train kept going from one engine to the four in RT. The continuity was a joke. Had a semi truck go from tandem axle to single back to tandem.

Seems like some of the actors must have had a house payment coming up.

Con-sider This: Sept. 6 2002
By AJ - Published on Amazon.com
This DVD offers little in the way of features, a trailer being all you get, but perhaps that is normal on a straight to DVD release, I do not know.
I have to admit, I watched this for the Flannery factor and he did not disappoint, but bar the cannibal Russian, there were no truly interesting characters developed here.
Arnold Vosloo was a great bad guy, but that can probably be attributed more to his legacy as the evil mummy than to anything he did in this film. By his mere presence, you just *know* he is a cool, evil dude without him ever speaking.
Dealing with the subject of terrorism and even referring to Sept 11 at one point, you get the feeling that either this movie was played down in lieu of the attacks, (I have no idea when this movie was written or filmed), or else simply lacks any feeling of real danger. Even the Long Kiss Goodnight did it better at the end with stressing the audience. Whatever it is, the dire threat does not seem too terrible or fantastical at all, perhaps not when we know the world is capable of far greater evil, perhaps because it's all been done before on film.
It does, however, steam along at a great pace though and has plenty of action to carry you along.
Worth it if only to see Agent Brooks (Flannery) in nothing but his bracelet <g>. Hey, I'm a woman, what can I say :-)

Alaska-Home of the Bad Action Movie Nov. 12 2011
By Eric Hofmann - Published on Amazon.com
This movie really isn't that bad.

The acting isn't ponderous or terribly compelling, the story line is interesting, perhaps a little predictable.

What kills the movie is the huge number of continuity problems.

The soundtrack is terrible. Typical canned background score.

I don't want to say too much about this movie. Watch it once. Or not. Its not the end of the world either way.
