In New York, armed men hijack a subway car and demand a ransom for the passengers. Even if it's paid, how could they get away?
The ransom demand is for $1,000,000, like in the novel, but in the 2009 remake, the ransom has been upgraded to $10,000,000, because a million was considered a corny asking price.
We'll have an ambulance here in no time, miss.
At the end of the film, Patrone and Garber are investigating 9 subway motormen from the list of those fired. Presumably all in one day, they see one in a wheelchair, one at a tollbooth, and Longman. When they're at Longman's apartment door, Garber asks Patrone how many more suspects from the list they still need to see that day. Patrone answers, "6, 7, I don't know." Apparently both of these highly trained and experienced cops have very short memories, or can't count to three.
Although many of the scenes in this film were taken on transit property, the New York City Transit Authority is not responsible for plot, story and characters portrayed. The Authority did not render technical advice and assistance.
