Rating: R Year: 1974 Category: Thriller Action Crime
Director: Joseph Sargent Time: 104 min. Writer: John Gody & Peter Stone

Mine: A gritty '70s thriller The dialogue is snappy, the cast is excellent, and David Shire's music is big, bold and brassy. Love Matthau as always. Great ending.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Four armed men hijack a New York City subway car and demand a ransom for the passengers. The city's police are faced with a conundrum: Even if it's paid, how could they get away?
