Movie Info

A pair of New York City cops collaborate on a plan to rob a cash-packed subway train in this action-comedy. Charlie (Woody Harrelson) and John (Wesley Snipes) are not just co-workers and close friends but also foster brothers. Because of this family connection, the reluctant John becomes involved in the more capricious Charlie's far-fetched scheme to rob the "money train" that collects the subway's daily grosses. Charlie needs the money for gambling debts, and robbing the train would have the

Bounces along with a lame script and inconsistent pace.

More viscerally charged than "Speed" and hipper than "Die Hard With a Vengeance," the movie is a careening, screeching joyride that showers sparks like fireworks.

"Money Train" is a by-the-numbers action-buddy picture, and few directors run through those numbers as smoothly as Joseph Ruben.

It's stupid, but also breezier than the year's other 12-score releases not worth a second look.

A loud and truly pointless action-comedy.

Harrelson and Snipes reproduce their onscreen magic from "White Men Can't Jump," even though no one asked them to

Snipes and Harrelson are still good together, but the screenplay stinks.

Pity poor Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson: two gifted actors who must have rotten self-esteem. Why else would they choose to be in a turkey like "Money Train"?

The two stars do manage to get off a couple of amusing riffs and Snipes gets to show off some of his kung fu fighting skills, but that's hardly enough to rescue what amounts to a real mess.

Audience Reviews for Money Train

Snipes and Harrelson team up again for this so so action thriller as two transit cops that lose their jobs and end up trying to rob the moneytrain. The film kicks off pretty well with the duo tagging up together and bustin bad guys whilst somewhat rebelling against their anal boss, as you can expect there is allot of fast dialog, fast punches and swift stunts but not enough to really impress or save the film.

After the first ten minutes or so the film does get quite dull quite quick its gotta be said with not much action and mainly the boys squabbling over Jennifer Lopez, we get some good fighting moments with Snipes doing his thing and Harrelson being abit of a dweeb haha

The film really picks up again in the finale with the guys trying to work out what to do when the plan by Harrelson to steal the moneytrain goes tits up and they are speeding towards certain death with another subway train. Its definitely quite tense and its filmed/created pretty well giving a good sense of danger and speed, easily the best part of the film and just about makes it watchable, only just.

Unfortunately, this seems to be an overlooked movie. Two foster brothers, Charlie (Woody Harrelson) and John (Wesley Snipes), patrol the streets of New York City trying to catch all the thieves and criminals that they can. They both get along and work together great, but things might get tangled up a bit when a woman (Jennifer Lopez) comes into view and they both like her. Also, Charlie and this woman are both in a lot of trouble in their own ways, both having to do with money.
If you like any other of Wesley Snipes's movies where he plays as an action or a comedy hero, then I definitely recommend getting "Money Train." Even if you don't know who Wesley Snipes is, you'll probably still like the movie if you like comedy and/or action movies.

Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson are both hilarious throughout the film and there's also some good action scenes to be watched. I hope to see these two star in another movie together because they're a great duo. Trust me, "Money Train" is one train you can't afford to miss. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001.

The chemistry between Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes is great, but the movie can't decide what it wants to be. Action flick or romantic comedy? Villains that have nothing to do with the plot - really, there is no plot - kind of just come and go.
