The "Hudson North" commuter train was a veiled representation of the actual Metro North trains than run from Grand Central Station in New York City to Westchester County. These trains go directly from Grand Central Station and make only 1 stop in Manhattan, 125th St. Mike's train made several stops in Manhattan which could only have been made by the Lexington Avenue subway line before reaching 125th St. In addition there is no commuter train stop at Yankee Stadium.

Basically a good plot, good acting, a good bit of suspense, action and good effects, so how can this go wrong?
Well parts of it is so ridiculous and stupid that it is hard to believe no one stopped it at the script level.. And parts are just 'over the top', sort of "OK we have paid for effects, so now give us a truck load full" - I was VERY close to leaving the theatre a couple of times....
And this is really sad, as it could have been a good action thriller, as the ideas were good.
I believe that cutting away the bad stuff that sums up to less than half an hour and replace a few minutes, and it could have been great in the genre!
