Trivia

R30 trains were retired from passenger service in 1993, these trains along with the IRT sized R33 and R36 trains were among the last in the system to never have air conditioning. The R30 would have become too heavy if air conditioning was added. See more »

Goofs

The ticket booth windows in the New York subways are bullet-proof, so John would not be able to shoot out the window in order to save the clerk. Likewise Grace would not be able to shoot at "Torch" from inside the booth 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 .
