A German scientist helps a Soviet general (Christopher Lee) construct two nuclear bombs, one of which is being transported across Europe by a mercenary on a train. Malcolm Philpott (Patrick Stewart), a member of UNACO, (United Nation Anti Crime Organisation), is tasked to stop the bomb using a team of agents, one of whom is Special Forces soldier Michael "Mike" Graham (Pierce Brosnan) and the beautiful sharpshooter Sabrina Carver (Alexandra Paul). Plutonium was stolen in order to make the bombs, and the only person who knows the combination to disarm them has been subjected to a vast amount of radiation and is slowly dying. Will they stop the general's army of men, led by leading madman Alex Tierney (Ted Levine), in time?
