Trivia

R30 trains were retired from passenger service in 1993, these trains along with the IRT sized R33 and R36 trains were among the last in the system to never have air conditioning. The R30 would have become too heavy if air conditioning was added. See more »

Goofs

It is impossible to "bleed the brakes" or otherwise dump out compressed air on any NYC subway car and force a runaway condition. When air pressure is lost on a subway car, it actually engages the brakes. This is a common fail-safe in rapid transit and railroad systems. See more »

What's with all the bad reviews?
17 March 2002 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

Reading the reviews below this seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it kind of film. Regardless of whether you 'get' the story and the rapport between Harrelson and Snipes, you can't overlook that this is a well made film.

I've only seen it twice, once when it first came out on video, and again in the past week. I didn't think it was that remarkable when it first came out, but when I watched it the second time around, I found it highly entertaining and well executed. Granted, it's not the best film ever but I don't think it's deserving of a lot of the bad reviews given here.

As a film it succeeds, and if you've never seen it before, it's worth checking out.
