About Jesus Hopped the A Train:

Angel Cruz is a 30-year-old bicycle messenger awaiting trial for the death of the leader of a religious cult. Inside Rikers Island, a terrified Angel is befriended by a charismatic serial killer named Lucius Jenkins. Lucius has found God and been born again, and now, Angel's life and the course of his trial will be changed forever. Jesus Hopped the A Train is a darkly comic meditation on redemption and faith.

Our Jesus Hopped the A Train Review

Jesus hopped the A train indeed. Twice. Once when Angel Cruz (Sean Carvajal) and his pal Joey were climbing through the subway tunnels because they were boys looking for adventure. One night their playtime went wrong and they froze when the train came rumbling at them. Something intervened and exploded them to safety - Jesus. Jesus had hopped the A Train to save them.
