* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:The chain snatcher early in the movie.]]



* {{Jerkass}}: '''Patterson'''. The man sees the running of the money train in time and with its full money reserve (which he goes as far as to call "his" money) as something more important than human lives. Early on he doesn't even apologizes for the train's guards shooting dead a small-time crook that was running at them (while running away from John) and during the climactic heist his big plan to stop the train (although probably he believed it was the GodzillaThreshold, seeing that a thick steel barricade didn't stopped it earlier) was to keep a passenger train on the same route and allow the money train to crash with it, even going so far as to radio the money train and tell John and Charlie that the resulting crash would be ''their'' fault. He also belittled Grace just for being a Latino woman, for which she gets her due payback by arresting him in the end for endangering innocent lives, and immediately suspects John and Charlie when the train runs several thousand short on a run that they were helping protect (and when it turns out that someone else did it, he doesn't apologizes and wants them fired for comments they did when he accused them of stealing).

* TechnologyMarchesOn: New York retired their money trains in 2006 as most modern subway riders use debit-like MetroCards and very little cash exchanges hands anymore.

* BillingDisplacement: The movie wasn't billed as a trio of Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and Jennifer Lopez until after the nineties. Original billing: Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson. It wasn't until Lopez became famous from later films and music when she appeared on the cover of the DVD next to Snipes and Harrelson.



* LifeImitatesArt: Shortly after the film released, news outlets tried to connect it to an incident where a man used a siphon to squirt kerosene into a New York Subway ticket booth and set it ablaze, similar to what a villain does in the film.
