About this item

DVD, R, 104 minutes, MGM

An all-star cast, including Oscar(R)-winners Walter Matthau and Martin Balsam teams up with Robert Shaw ("Jaws") to deliver "sure-fire entertainment [that's] gripping and exciting from beginning to end" (The Hollywood Reporter). Based on the sizzling best-seller by John Godey, this pulse-pounding picture is guaranteed to give you the ride of your life! Somewhere underground, in New York's subway system, just outside the Pelham Station, a gang of armed men hijack a train, threatening to kill one hostage per minute unless their demands are met. Forced to stall these unknown assailants until a ransom is delivered or a rescue is made, transit chief Lt. Garber (Matthau) must ad-lib, bully, con and shrewdly outmaneuver one of the craftiest and cruelest villains (Shaw) in a battle of wits that will either end heroically or tragically. From the minute you board this train until its exhilarating climax, you will be taken by "plenty of surprises and lots of nail-biting action" (Blockbuster Movie Guide).

Collectible Booklet, Original Theatrical Trailer, NTSC.

A wonderfully entertaining movie. Outstanding drama, with, believe it or not, a lot of great funny lines sprinkled throughout. The stars are great, but the supporting cast steal the show! Also, one of the best endings of a movie ever made. Classic Stuff! Do not miss! (Not for kids!)

This is one of Matthaus best movies, a lot of suspense, and good police work to catch the perpetrators at the end, if you like the classic drama suspense movie then this is the one to buy.

This is the first and definitive version of this film. The tv remake was an embarassment. Don't waste your money on that version, get this version and you won't regret it.
