' Your train has been taken.' These ominous words echo into the security section of the New York subway. The unlikeliest of hijackings has taken place with a gang of armed and desperate men in command of a train compartment and 17 passengers. Their demand is a ransom of$1 million - to be delivered within an hour. For every minute's delay one of the passengers will die ...
This ingenious and gripping movie has a strong documentary element, contributing to the forceful and violent portrait of New York life - above and below the ground.
