Reuniting Wesley Snipes & Woody Harrelson three years after White Men Can't Jump (qv), this silly action film features the two actors as a pair of disgraced policemen who decide to rob, well, a train carrying money.
What could have been a modern twist on train robbery films of the western genre is given the standard action movie formula and isn't particularly special or memorable.
