A large number of passengers on the Beacon-bound train disembark at 125th Street. All northbound Metro-North Hudson line trains going that distance to Beacon would not allow anyone getting off that train as 125th Street is a stop only to receive passengers. Also, the majority of these customers would use the nearby NYC subway between Grand Central and 125th Street. See more »
Basically a good plot, good acting, a good bit of suspense, action and good effects, so how can this go wrong?
Well parts of it is so ridiculous and stupid that it is hard to believe no one stopped it at the script level.. And parts are just 'over the top', sort of "OK we have paid for effects, so now give us a truck load full" - I was VERY close to leaving the theatre a couple of times....
And this is really sad, as it could have been a good action thriller, as the ideas were good.
I believe that cutting away the bad stuff that sums up to less than half an hour and replace a few minutes, and it could have been great in the genre!
