Movie Info

The idea for the blockbuster American film Speed didn't come out of thin air, as evidenced by this Japanese predecessor. A crazed man (Ken Takakura) has deposited an explosive device on a train that will detonate if the train's speed dips below 80 km/h, and issues a warning that he'll manually set it off if he doesn't get what he wants. As authorities try to track down the elusive mastermind, the train conductor, Aoki (Sonny Chiba), must instill a sense of security in his passengers until he can find the bomb.
