" I don't care if people die, Nothing stops the Money Train ! "
If you are seeking an exciting, dramatic movie, with everything, including the kitchen sink thrown in, you've found it. This story revolves around a special transit vehicle called the " Money Train. " The armored subway car itself belong to the New York Transit authority and is overseen by Police Chief Donald Paterson (Robert Blake). Although there are many policemen assigned to the Train units, or subway, only two are causing Paterson to become annoyed with their behavior. Officer John and his partner Charlie (Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson) are two disgruntled police officers who have discovered their chief cares more about his train and its on-time schedule, than for the public safety. With their careers all but finished, the two cops plan to rob the train. Both have reasons, but is further complicated when the two half-brothers began squabbling over their beautiful new partner Officer Grace Santiago (Jennifer Lopez). While the two brothers bicker and complain, serious problems like, muggings, pick-pockets and a pyromaniac called 'The Torch" (Chris Cooper) is causing major concerns. The movie is dosed liberally with fists fights, speed chases and explosions of the third kind, enough to called this movie dramatically exciting. Woody Harrelson gives a special tour De force but is equally confronted by Robert Blake's movie presence. This film is guaranteed to produce excitement and an adrenaline rush as audiences are subjected to the glorious trills of a run-away-train. Excellent viewing. ****
