Money Train Reviews
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.
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 plot doesn't make too much sense. They could just jump off the train anytime they want, with the money or without.
Jennifer Lopez is little more than cameo here ... and not offering much in the way of eye-candy either.
RECOMMENDATION: If you've seen the original version of "The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3," this film will be quite a letdown. But it's tough to tell anyone to take a pass on watching ... a runaway subway car!!
TRIVIA: Turns out that the NYC subway system did in fact use money trains until Metrocards bought at vending machines with debit/credit cards all but did away with cash purchases.
