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

At the time of the theft/hijacking, all the guards go to the token booth and none of them stays near the train to guard the money already on board, even though the train door is wide open to the platform. If one guard had stayed, Charlie would not have been able to break in unnoticed through the train floor. 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.
