Trivia

This boasts the distinction of having one of the longest sets ever constructed for a film. At over 3000 feet long, 20 feet high and four railway tracks wide, the set was roughly the same size as two Empire State building lying side by side. The original plan was to film in the real New York subway but the logistics proved too problematic. See more »

Goofs

If Patterson had ordered the power shut down, the money train would have been rendered useless and made escape for John and Charlie impossible. See more »

Quotes

John: No, you ain't gonna hit him.
Charlie: Why not?
John: Because I'm gonna hit him!

A fun and entertaining action film. Highly recommended!
27 November 2000 | by (Little Rock, AR) – See all my reviews

Money Train is a great popcorn movie and Snipes and Harrison once again show the chemistry that makes a good buddy movie. The script is fast-paced and clever and Jennifer Lopez is as beautiful and sexy as always. This film is a true "sleeper hit" and is well worth the effort to catch-up with if you missed it the first time around.
