I have watched this movie The Taking of Pelham 123 in the theater and had the opportunity to see it again on DVD last night. I am a big Travolta fan and I love it when he is the bad guy.
I didn't think this movie was the best but it was was good. I feel like I have seen way too many movies with similar story so it gets C- for story. Danzel Washington was typical. He is a good actor so he did his job. I give him B. John Travolta gets an A for being a kick ass bad guy once again. One of my all time favorite movies of Travolta is Face/Off.
The story: Ryder (John Travolta) hijack a New York City subway train and holding passengers hostage for ransom money. Ummm yea... so that's it. lol but the lines he uses in the movie are way too cool. His sunglasses kicked ass, lol and best of all it was an intense movie. Loved the action packed dialogues and humor that Travolta brings to a movie.
Overall, I give it B+ :). I highly recommend watch this movie to see one of John Travolta's best performances.
