Dir: Mike Figgis
Starring: Melanie Griffith and Sean Bean
A corrupt American businessman becomes entangled with a Newcastle club owner
This crime drama, filmed on location in Newcastle, is not as exciting as it sounds despite its big name cast, but it features a number of railway scenes that includes a high-rise aerial shot of the King Edward Bridge with an HST set and a light engine crossing. In addition to this shot, there is a brief scene filmed from inside an HST as it departs from Newcastle Central station and a pair of Class 143 ‘Pacer’ DMU’s are visible through the window. Finally, there is a scene with Sean Bean boarding one of the Tyne & Wear Metro units at St James station on the Metro system, and there are a couple of shots of the frontage to Newcastle Central station.
