Two foster brothers work as transit cops. While one's life is as good as it gets, the other's is a pit.

But when things go awry, will his brother be able to save him in time? Written by

Most of the subway scenes were filmed on a 4000-foot-long set built to resemble a typical four-track New York subway trunk line. It included three stations, all of which were built as local stops with the platforms on the outside of the outer tracks. Included were I-beams between each track, spaced five feet apart just as they are in New York. The ceiling, however, was much higher than on any actual New York subway line. See more »
The real money trains (officially known as "Revenue Collection Trains" of which there are several dozen cars in service, not two) are usually older, grungy, decrepit retired passenger cars with bars on the windows. They are painted yellow with black warning stripes in the front. They are staffed by NYC Transit Authority, a majority of which appear to be middle aged, overweight, and female, oddly enough, and armed with nothing more than .38 revolvers. They are nothing like the automatic weapon-wielding SWAT team cops depicted in the movie. See more »

A fun and entertaining action film. Highly recommended!
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.
