Trivia

12 New York subway cars were shipped over to Los Angeles to the film set. They were converted to run on propane so that the rails on the film set did not need to be electrified - a potential health hazard for all the crew. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Very Average but still good .
27 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Money Train is one of those films that is NOT A MUST SEE , but it is worth a check out if it is on the TV or if you got nothing better to do on your Friday night then its worth a rent . In my opinion I found it a lot more enjoyable then White Men Can't Jump , its sort of like a down graded high speed version of Oceans 11 . The chemistry between Snipes and Harrelson is spot on and it works well for a third time . There is not much of a plot to the film just an average screw your average ass-hole boss movie which I like at this point and time because it reminds me of the relationship I have with my boss not to mention the slight money problems I'm having . Jennifer Lopez just bobs up now and then but in this case her screen presence is welcoming . I don't want to be fussy and pick out several little pieces and analyse them , this film was a simple time killing pop-corn movie that should viewed when you don't feel like watching something heavy or you'd rather check this out rather than Santa's Slay .

MONEY TRAIN - 5.6 OUT 10 - THATS WHAT WE LIVE WITH .
