When you stop and think about it, riding on a high-speed railway system is pretty frightening. Much like flying, one thing goes wrong and you can be in a world of trouble. Add to that the fact that you’re in a tunnel under the English Channel and then your train gets hijacked by terrorists, and well, it’s a pretty shitty day, as seen in the new film, “SAS: Red Notice.”
The trailer for “SAS: Red Notice” sets up the premise for the film pretty clearly. You have a badass military guy that gets on a train from the UK to France and finds that his transportation has become hijacked by a terrorist group that aims to expose some of the deep dark secrets of the British government. As you might suspect, guns are fired, bad guys are killed, and (presumably), the day is eventually saved.
The film stars Sam Heughan, Ruby Rose, Andy Serkis, Hannah John-Kamen, and Tom Wilkinson. ‘SAS’ is directed by Magnus Martens. The filmmaker is probably best known for his TV work, helming episodes of series such as “The Walking Dead: World Beyond,” “Fear the Walking Dead,” “Longmire,” “Agents of SHIELD,” and “Luke Cage.”
“SAS: Red Notice” debuts on VOD on March 16. You can watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
Tom Buckingham (SAM HEUGHAN), a special forces operator, is taking Dr. Sophie Hart from London to Paris to propose. When their train is deep inside the Channel Tunnel, Grace Lewis (RUBY ROSE) and her team of heavily armed war criminals seize the train and hold hundreds of passengers hostage. Grace threatens to expose the British governments darkest secrets and blow up the Channel Tunnel if her ransom demands are not met. Unarmed and cut off from his counter terror team, Tom is the only hope that Sophie and the other passengers have to make it out alive. Based on the best-selling novel by former SAS operator Andy McNab, SAS: RED NOTICE is a provocative and authentic portrayal of an emergency response operation and the singular mindset Tom needs to survive.
