(John Voight) fakes his own death early on, but then decides to
spook our hero, Ethan, in London's Liverpool Street Station. They
have coffee in a cafe together on the station (yes, folks, it's
still open at 11:35pm, how likely is that?)
has genius-ly managed to track down Max (Vanessa Redgrave) who is
in the market for the top secret information that can only be stolen
from a super secret safe computer (thankfully it's in a room with
a pretty dodgy ventilation system with rats in it).
standard floppy disk is delivered under her seat on the TGV London
to Paris Chunnel but it is prevented from being downloaded by Ethan's
buddy. A chase then starts with Ethan managing to stop Jim's escape
in a helicopter from the top of the Chunnel Train by latching the
helicopter to the train, and it's about to go into the tunnel...
And then it goes into the tunnel... Ooopy oops...
a short while where it looks like the helicopter has managed to
stay in one piece, it explodes into a ball of flame. Ethan lives
happily until the next movie.
