Kidnapping a Subway

Tuesday 28 July 2009

Went to watch Taking of Pelham 123 starring Denzel Washington & John Travolta, both veteran actors whose work I admire a lot. It's about Ryder (Travolta) who hijacked a subway train in NYC and demand 10m from the mayor to pay off the hostages. Denzel happenned to pick up the phone when Travolta called control station.

Both actors are slightly unrecognizable (both Denzel & Travolta put on a lot of weight and they really look old). I thought the show was not too bad as the plot was quite good, and the actors did a great job, but some said it was rubbish so I'll leave you to be the judge of that.

Denzel Washington as Walter Garber, train station control operator

John Travolta as the bad ass hijacker

It's showing in cinemas now.


  1. Dear,

    As a movie-lover, i had have high expectation for this movie, [Watched on 3rd August 2009], and Nahhhh.... Nothing compare to 'Ransom', or 'Negotiation'or 'Inside man'. These movies about Kidnap, ransom, hostage, etc.

    For Denzel Movie, i never expect action sequence nor special effect; i only enjoy the rich, unpredictable story-line, and it just wasn't what i expected.

    Well, what i have learn these days is that : 'Do not have high expectation on the movie, and just enjoy the ride!'
