Movie Review: The Taking Of Pelham 123
Ginger Liu wrote this review 5 years and 4 months ago
Billboards for The Taking of Pelham 123 omit the first names of Travolta and Washington; maybe this will start a trend. Denzel and John star in the remake of Joseph Sargent’s 1979 gritty New York thriller that faced off Robert Shaw’s cold-blooded hijacker against dispatcher Walter Matthau. The New York of thirty years ago, at least on the big screen, was a melting pot of street violence and political tension and contrasts nicely with the modern day New York of high tech and trendy lifestyles.
