Movies often depict innocent people being accosted on subway trains in the big city. Of course, there is always a hero who saves the day, with gratuitous violence sending audiences into a passionate cheer.
With this being said, and after viewing the three-on-one assault on the MetroLink over and over, I feel there are two things dreadfully wrong with this picture: obviously, no security and even more disappointing, no hero.
In my opinion, in a more perfect world, there would be more cases of life imitating art.
