New York City subway dispatcher Walter Garber's (Denzel Washington) ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime: the hijacking of a subway train. Ryder (John Travolta), a criminal mastermind and leader of a highly-armed gang of four, threatens to execute the train's passengers unless a large ransom is paid within one hour.
As the tension mounts beneath his feet, Garber employs his vast knowledge of the subway system in a battle to outwit Ryder and save the hostages. But there's one riddle Garber can't solve: even if the thieves get the money, how can they possibly escape?
Not in the least bit realistic, hard to follow at parts, and the ending was ridiculous.
This was an excellent action thriller mind you the book was better, but the acting was top notch as was the writing directing and visuals. also JOHN TRAVOLTA SCAREDTHE S**T OUT OF ME. He was very good. I was on the edge of my seat and I was in a comfy chair. Haddonfield 31
Awesome! I don;t get all the people who say this wasn't a great show. The action scenes were were well done as well. It's sort of like jason bourne meets face off. A great combo!
