    Rush the train before you miss it!

    Tony Scott, a director who had made cult films like “Top Gun”, “Beverly Hills Cop2”, “Déjà vu”, and etc and etc and etc. Who the fool would be one would miss-out this film. Start-End, the most thrilling experience you would ever get after watching this tremendous film.

    The film is all about a train hijacking. The film is all about the two people “Walter Garber” (Denzel Washington) & Ryder (John Travolta). A two hour film will rock your seat with the high speed of the Pelham 123.

    Yes, the story is all about this ... » read more

    Sony Pictures has positioned The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 as June's official grown-up movie. Of course, they let Tony Scott direct it, so they're clearly hedging their bets a little bit. But it still handles its appointed task with a decent amount of verve. There's a bad guy with a cunning plan, a good guy in over his head, and a few twists and turns along the way to keep the formula from becoming too stale. If it never feels quite as clever as it thinks it is, so what? It's going to look like freaking Antonioni when Transformers lands in a couple of weeks.

    Damn good remake. Don't miss it!

    Usually re-makes seem to be very pale compared to the original. This new take of “THE TAKING OF PELHAM 1 2 3” is super unleaded of the 1974 version “The Taking of Pelham One Two Three” starred Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw and Martin Balsam. Of course, pretty tame up against John Travolta leading a small group of armed men who hijack a New York City subway train and holding passengers hostage for a small fortune. Denzel Washington is the dispatcher that tries to talk sense with mastermind Travolta. Most of the movie is their banter ... » read more

    Unsatisfactory remake!

    What did I expect? Hollywood hasn't really produced a good remake in awhile. Maybe they should stop? Originality always helps! In our Bollywood let’s take an example of “Hera Pheri” and in Hollywood let’s taken the current example “The Final Destination”. The first version can be seen ‘n’ number of times, but the second version always gives us a sad feeling like “Why the hell have I seen even once a time?”

    Denzel and Travolta gave okay performances and Tony Scott puts in a few tense moments, but where are the danger and the action? ... » read more
