SYNOPSIS

‘Nerve-demolishing suspense delivered at an intoxicating pace as merciless hijackers led by cold-blooded Robert Shaw take over a NYC subway and demand $1,000,000 in ransom. Hardboiled action thrillers just don’t get much better, with some of the most profanely entertaining, hard-nosed dialogue of any 1970s fare. The sterling cast includes Walter Matthau, Martin Balsam, Hector Elizondo and Jerry Stiller.’ American Cinémathèque
