Review: The Taking of Pelham 123

A New York city subway system is run by a control office with people making the routes. One day a man holds one train cart hostage with the people in it, asking for $10’000’000 from the city of New York. The unlucky man who gets the call at the station control is Walter Garber (Denzel Washington), this falls in his lap and the guy pulling this off likes him so sticks to him. This is one interesting movie, it isn’t all that it seems to be when you go through the movie. A smart movie about a desperate man who is willing to die, and one man who is desperate to save everybody. Ryder is played by John Travolta, and he plays the perfect villain, smart, dangerous, and a little bit of crazy, just the prefect combination to pull this off. A great movie and you will enjoy some of the supporting actors in it, action packed until the end, there was one scene with a motorcycle that even hurt me, you will know when you see it.

  7. Q80 In Denver

    This is THE WORST MOVIE OF THE YEAR so far! seriously, what’s new? we’ve seen THE EXACT same same story and plotline 1000 times! this movie had really really weird scenes .. webcam live and the guy could talk that easy like no kidnappers around him? no one could notice the big laptop screen? denzel washington’s wife tells him to bring a gallon of milk while going to the kidnappers? huh? shame on Washington, Travolta and Tony Scott for making this stupid movie!
