Money Train (R) A big, noisy head-ache of a movie, reuniting White Men Can’t Jump stars Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson as New York City Transit Authority policemen. They’re joined by a third transit cop (Jennifer Lopez) who becomes romantically involved with both of them. Lopez gives a smashing performance, radiating braininess while making some very cool martial-arts moves. Robert Blake, looking embalmed, plays a commissioner in charge of the train that carries all the money collected from the stations’ turnstiles. Will our heroes protect the train or rob it? Money Train doesn’t care if we care. D+
