4.0 out of 5 stars Solid thriller
Interesting re-make. Enjoyed but still love the 1974 original. Matthau is better than Washington in my opinion. Travolta does a good job of chewing up the scenery.

3.0 out of 5 stars Take the 1974 version.
The 70's version is much better. In that one the criminals never seem out of control, and their calmness makes them more disturbing, particularly Robert Shaw. Travolta is tightly wound and regularly explodes which becomes annoying. Denzel Washington is good as Garber but not as good as Walter Mathau. The earlier version also has a better plot. Writers of the remake appear...

The 70's version is much better. In that one the criminals never seem out of control, and their calmness makes them more disturbing, particularly Robert Shaw. Travolta is tightly wound and regularly explodes which becomes annoying. Denzel Washington is good as Garber but not as good as Walter Mathau. The earlier version also has a better plot. Writers of the remake appear to have been paid by the curse word and were intent on extracting full value. This detracts from a decent movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars intense drama,good acting, April 18 2011
This review is from: The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009) [Blu-ray] (Bilingual) (Blu-ray)
to my surprise this remake was actually a pretty good film.it's Directed by Tony Scott,so i had reservations going in,but overall this movie works.John Travolta(as the villain)and Denzel Washington(as the hero)play well off each other.there's plenty of intense drama,good dialogue and eventually some good action sequences.the acting is very good here from both Travolta and Washington,and the supporting cast.this one has a more expanded story than the original.you get to know the two main characters a bit.the movie is probably fairly realistic in its portrayal of how the the characters would react in that kind of situation.anyway,i was very entertained by the whole thing.for me,The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 is a 4/5
