Release Date:

An all-star cast, including Oscar-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. 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.
