“Atomic Train” is a 1999 disaster-thriller TV movie directed by Dick Lowry and starring Rob Lowe, Kristin Davis, and Esai Morales.
Synopsis: A train carrying a nuclear bomb is accidentally set in motion and speeds towards Denver, Colorado, threatening to cause a catastrophic explosion. A young engineer (Rob Lowe) and a federal agent (Kristin Davis) work together to try to stop the train before it's too late. However, their efforts are complicated by a group of terrorists who have their own agenda and are willing to do anything to get their hands on the bomb.
Awards: “Atomic Train” did not receive any major awards, but it was generally well-received as an entertaining and suspenseful disaster movie with solid performances from its cast. The film was praised for its tense pacing, realistic action sequences, and its depiction of the potential dangers of nuclear weapons. Despite being a TV movie, it had a larger budget than most made-for-TV films at the time and included notable actors in its cast.
