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 added benefit of angering Charlie's and John's harsh, corrupt boss Captain… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Bounces along with a lame script and inconsistent pace."
‑ Brian Lowry, Variety
""Money Train" is a by-the-numbers action-buddy picture, and few directors run through those numbers as smoothly as Joseph Ruben."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"A loud and truly pointless action-comedy."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Goes nowhere fast."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"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"?"
‑ Jane Ganahl, San Francisco Examiner
"Hardly worth the four-year wait."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Even if they only charged a token, it would be too much."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"Harrelson and Snipes reproduce their onscreen magic from "White Men Can't Jump," even though no one asked them to"
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Film Threat
"Shapeless buddy-action junk."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"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."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"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."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"It's stupid, but also breezier than the year's other 12-score releases not worth a second look."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Snipes and Harrelson are still good together, but the screenplay stinks."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Snipes + Harrelson = Fun + Fireworks."
‑ Kim Williamson, Boxoffice Magazine
