The Taking of Pelham 123.
Solid remake pits Denzel Washington (does this guy ever put in a bad performance?) against John Travolta (now a veteran in these rolls).
I am usually not for remakes, and this one doesn’t really add much to the concept – nothing new here. Taking hostages, wanting money, hero needs to be redeemed etc. But you know what, I enjoyed it anyway.
Washington is the man. I mean the guy rocks in every stinking movie he’s in and he is just really likable here too.
So go check it out.
