forgettable nonsense
26 December 2000 | by (anaheim, ca) – See all my reviews

A talky, boredom laden 70's drama concerning three major dolts (these guys define the word "idiot") thinking the road to riches is to steal from a bunch of fatcats on a New York commuter train. They storm into their private car, a bunch of arguements ensue, and some extremely unlikable characters cop 'tudes with each other. With everything confined to a railroad car, there's not much to do besides talk, and the finale was a jumbled change of heart by 2 of the robbers, with a totally inconclusive ending. We never see the aftermath when the damn train finally gets to the station! What do you expect from cheesy 70's tv cinema? YAWN!
