Some 30 years back, I saw a film about the son of an extraterrestrial who gets involved in a gold heist.
The main character does not initially know that he is the son of an extraterrestrial and that has special telekinetic powers. The film opens, I think, with him being in some train yard, his foot getting stuck in a switch with a locomotive approaching. He stops it using his powers intuitively, possibly passing out (not realizing what he actually did). I think his mother subsequently reveals his heritage to him.
He somehow gets hired as a bodyguard for someone planning a gold heist. I think they know his abilities and use him to steal a million US dollars. Actually, that is just a distraction, covering that they steal 30 million dollars from the same location (through the air, not sure on that part).
The last part I remember is some underground tunnels where the thieves set up to melt the gold. The main character is locked in there.
Does anyone know the title of this movie? Searching for things like "sci-fi gold heist extraterrestrial etc." did not reveal anything to me. I also had a hard time picking proper tags (sorry).
