Many reviews I have read about this film say it is a pretty bad movie, but I do not know what they are talking about. METRO is a very exciting and enjoyable police action-thriller. Eddie Murphy is very good in one of his more serious roles, and Michael Wincott is very good as the psycho jewel thief. Also, the action scene's were top notch, from the opening bank robbery scene, to the famous cable car chase. Fans of Eddie Murphy's comedy may be disappointed in the film, since it has a more serious tone to it and focuses more on action than comedy, but action fans will definitely enjoy this one. 4/5
