Product Description

Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes, the stars of 'White Men Can't Jump' are reunited as foster brother cops who plan to rob the 'money train' which collects millions of dollars from New York subway stations. Their boss regards the train as his responsibility, and he prides himself on the having the best security money can buy. However, this doesn't stop the boys from hatching a devious scheme for a New Year's Eve heist.

From Amazon.co.uk

This attempt to reunite the stars of White Men Can't Jump will most likely be remembered as the movie that allegedly inspired a number of copycat arsons in the New York subway system. In other words, the movie itself is too perfunctory to be remembered for any other reason. Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes share their established chemistry as a pair of stepbrothers who work the subway detail as undercover detectives in the NYPD. Woody's a compulsive gambler with a huge debt problem to contend with, and he's also competing with his brother for the attentions of their new and beautiful partner (Jennifer Lopez), who's been assigned to join their investigation of the subway crimes. They're also supposed to guard the daily money train (so named because it contains each day's worth of subway fares), but Woody gets the bright idea that it might be the solution to his money woes. What follows is standard-issue action fare for the mid-1990s--lots of violence, excessive profanity, and attempts at witty banter between the co-stars to make it all seem more entertaining than it really is. You'd need to be a serious Harrelson, Snipes, or Lopez fan to add this movie to your collection. For anyone else, one viewing ought to be enough. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Wesley and Woody play two brothers (!) who work as transit cops. Woody's a gambling junkie with a huge debt on his back while Wesley plays the straight man who's getting a little tired of constantly having to bail his brother out. Desperate, Woody plans to hijack the Money Train that rides along to each station, collecting the night's collections. Folks, believe me when I tell you that it actually gets more ridiculous. Add to the mix a pyromaniac token booth bandit, Jennifer Lopez, Robert Blake in a performance so hammy that you can almost smell the bacon coming from your tv, action sequences that are unabashedly ridiculous and you have yourself... Money Train. My favorite moment comes when Robert Blake, after having been informed of the possibility of civilian casualties if the hijacked Money Train continues to speed ahead on the local line, responds with the now-classic line, "That's what we live with." I was laughing so hard that tears were squirting out of my eyes. This movie is utterly ridiculous yet strangely riveting. Wesley Snipes plays his usual cocky, confident self and it seems to me that he won't accept a role these days unless he gets to kick someone in the face. Woody Harrelson looks like he smoked one too many blunts in this one. I actually prefer his character here over Wesley's and that's not saying much. Jennifer Lopez looks damn good but I can't help but think how stupid she is in real life. I really don't know where else to go with this review other than to recommend watching it.

A film with not much depth except of course that of the subway, but the action is interesting in itself, and the number of stuntmen and stuntwomen is there to prove it.

A bureaucrat is at the head of the New York Transport Police Department (NYTPD for short and cop for even shorter) and for him there is only one thing that counts: the money train that gathers the inflowing money of the subway and takes it to the proper safe somewhere well protected. For him all human beings, his employees, those of the subway system and the passengers who probably are nothing but silent users, at least for him, are pawns on some draughts board, a game that some call checkers. In other words he is a pecuniary financial criminal if not assassin but he has his title and pedigree on his side: he is a gangster in an official authority job: he can have a kid killed if he decides so.

The couple of cops that gets extended to a triad shortly after the beginning with a woman are just tense and living on the brink of a nervous breakdown all the time. One is black and cool, but over protective towards the other one he calls his brother and is white. That white man is addicted to cards and he is a great loser and like all losers he is addicted to losing in the name of the absolutely unproved fact that he may win one day. Read my lips and follow my eyes. You can see the social trashcan over there? That's where gamblers always end, except if they cheat and as long as they are not exposed.

They have the tendency to always share and yet bitch about everything they share and they love each other so strong that they can break up and yet the black man will run after the white man (who is a psychic boy) within seconds after he knows his white brother is in danger or in jeopardy.

I've always loved this movie, it's actually in my top ten, not because of a daring robbery, or it's an alternative Christmas film, but because of the camaraderie between Snopes' character John, and Charlie's attitude to John (Charlie being played by Woody Harrelson), and the way they are brothers who will stand the test of time.

This film is amazing, showing us how brothers no matter what colour or creed can get on together, even though they have ups and downs, and they're not prepared to let money get in the way, not like crazy Patterson who's obsession with the train leads to a power struggle between good and bad - and Officer Santiago's arrival onto the scene is memorable (played by Jennifer Lopez)

This isn't the first outing for Wesley and Woody, they have worked on White Men Can't Jump back in 92, and have shown that yet again as a duo they work perfectly together, it just seems when one starts - the other is motivated by the other. In some ways it feels like they're brothers - even as basketball hustlers in their first outing. The pair just gel, and it's always good to see, like Glover and Gibson in the Lethal Weapon movies.

Obviously the storyline is daft, but this film stands tall over that, and is worth watching, even if it's just the once to say you didn't enjoy it.

Give it a go, the worst that can happen is you'll waste an hour and a half, seriously.

Snipes and Harrelson look like they're having a ball in this fast paced action caper. The boys are adopted bothers and work as transit cops suffering beneath a megalomaniac boss whose only priority is the revenue collection train, the money train of the title. When Harrelson falls foul of his gambling debts he decideds to rob the train and its upto Snipes to help or hinder his brother. JLo decorates the rather dour underground world they inhabit but her scripting doesn't get beyond being Snipes love interest. Parts of the scripts character motivations feel a little muddled at times making it less slick than the likes of Die Hard and Lethal Weapon but it's a fun ride with plenty of action so I enjoyed it for what it was.
