Trivia

Two days after the film opened, two men poured petrol over a ticket booth on the Brooklyn subway and set it alight in an incident similar to the one depicted in the film. The booth attendant was burned and later died of his injuries. Consequently New York subway workers called for a boycott of the film and the removal of all the posters from every station. Republican senator Bob Dole quickly came out in support of them. Columbia Pictures refused to bow to their demands. See more »

Well, not really very good, but watchable
18 July 2005 | by (Farmington Hills, MI) – See all my reviews

Not really a very good movie. Much of the plot is unbelievable and implausible.

However, I do find that I enjoy watching this from time to time. I seem to enjoy just about anything with Wesley Snipes. I believe he is very underrated. His easygoing, but dedicated cop in this works for me. He works hard, is smart, and seems to be someone you can rely on. He cares deeply for the "brother" who grew up in his house, but he is frustrated in constantly having to bail him out of trouble.

I suppose Woody Harrelson's character is probably the worst thing about this for me. His character is seriously annoying, and it would be hard to believe him surviving as a police officer, with all his personal problems. It's okay to suspend disbelief, but a movie like this should at least have an air of plausibility.

Robert Blake's subway manager is quite a bit over-the-top, but provides a real antagonism for the buddy/brother cops, and establishes himself as the real villain for the plot.

The plan, and the execution of the robbery, (and Snipes character going along with something like this), REALLY stretches plausibility, but there is an easy camaraderie between the 2 actors, and the action is good.

It ain't all that good, but it isn't unwatchable.
