An all-star cast, including Oscar-winners Walter Matthau and Martin Balsam teams up with Robert Shaw to deliver "sure-fire entertainment [that's] gripping and exciting from beginning to end" (The Hollywood Reporter). 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.

Four identically-dressed gunmen lay siege to a New York subway train and demand that a ransom of one million dollars be delivered within the hour. Transport cop Lt. Gerber (Walter Matthau) negotiates with the hijackers, trying to keep their leader (Robert Shaw) engaged in a continuous radio conversation while he looks for a way to defuse the situation and puzzles over the hijackers' intended escape plans. How exactly do they hope to make their getaway from an enclosed tunnel surrounded by police?
