Oh my. Why even think about it? It stars Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson. How could it be worth seeing?

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.

A reasonably enjoyable action-buddy film as they try to rob the money train!

Likeable buddy-cum-heist movie that's full of the usual cliches but Snipes and Harrelson make an enjoyable double act, and the action is efficiently handled.

An awful mess. Woody Harrelson is good as always, but the rest of this movie isn't great. And the amount of missed opportunities with Jennifer Lopez.

Woody Harrelson ... is a complete screw up in life! Wesley Snipes kicks ass ... and is loyal to the end! Their boss ... is a complete jerk! There are no characters in this film, just caricatures. As an added "benefit", it encouraged real-life copycat arsonists when it came out.

I normally really enjoy Woody Harrelson, but this movie was just boring and had bad acting all the way around.

Snipes and Harreson make an amazing team on camera and their chemistry is what sells the relationship.

Ok for popcorn munching, cuz you get to watch ... a runaway subway car!!

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.

Theyre baaaaacck! Wesley and Woody the team that everyone loved in White Men Cant Jump return in this action comedy as they star as foster brothers and NYPD Transit Cops working the Subway.Charlie (Woody Harrelson) is the out of control brother who is thinking about doing an inside job on the money train.John (Wesley Snipes) is the on track cop who battles with his brother for the affection of their new partner (Jennifer Lopez).Charlie ends up falling into his own gambling abyss and decides to go through with his fantasy of robbing the train.Only his brother can stop him.Robert Blake also stars as the despicably evil Chief Patterson who hates them both and wants to see them both go down.Great action and hilarious one liners and dialogue this is the ultimate buddy cop movie!

An obvious hit-and-miss type of film. Trying to successfully combine Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes again after their White Man Can't Jump film, Money Train fails in delivering what it set out to do. That was to make a sincere and believable action buddy film from the success of their last one. The majority of their dialogue was too forced and it seemed like it was left out of the last film script. Jennifer Lopez was fresh off her stint on In Living Color as one of "The Fly Girls" and it seemed like a logical thing to do on adding her to this film to build up her credibility. It obviously worked and she went to star in one of her biggest films to date, Selena. It's good these actors made this film in the beginning of their careers because Money Train was a jumbled mess.

It's not everyday you watch a movie that is fast paced, has great actors, great storyline, serious yet funny, all rolled into one! This movie is fantastic. I know it's kind of old..but try it..you will like it!
