Meh this movie seems to be a mediocre remake of a good old movie alas it's pretty good

John Travolta makes a good bad guy...yet again. Denzel Washington makes an, unusual for him, unconfident hero.

The Taking of Pelham 123 is a decent action thriller, but manages to fall well short of the original. What saves it in the end is the fact that Tony Scott and Denzel Washington has a special relationship that usually ends up in somewhat watchable movies.

Not as good as the original, but still good enough to watch when it comes up on the TV.

Couldn't disagree with you more der_unglaub...

i loved this movie i thought it was awesome!! denzel & travolta nailed their roles playing their parts to perfection especially travolta he was spot on as the villain.

the story was great too tbh i loved the whole thing. i should mention i haven't had a chance to watch the first one yet but i will do at some stage. whether that makes a difference or not i dunno but i only rate a movie on it's own merits therefore i highly recommend this it's a great watch. i even bought the bluray the other day too.
