Becky and I went to a charity event tonight over near the Landmark Theater with our friend Walt Oleski and after going to the function we couldn’t resist going to catch a movie. There’s a surprise, eh? We went to see the new movie, The Taking of Pelham 123 at the Landmark theater in Englewood, CO. The Fandango website at The Taking of Pelham 123 describes the movie as follows:
“A group of hijackers take a subway train and its passengers hostage, threatening to kill them if their ransom is not paid of 1 million dollars.”
The Review Sweet Land film
The Taking of Pelham 123 is a movie about a group of terrorists who take over a subway car and hold it for ransom for ten million dollars. The entire movie is about this event and not about anything else. It’s a remake of an older film from 1974 with Walter Matthau and Robert Shaw, which I’m going to want to see because I think it will be much better than this one.
Don’t get me wrong, the acting in this flick was phenomenal. John Travolta proves that he can play a woman or a terrorist and he was amazing in this role as a whack job. You don’t like his character at all since he is a very evil dude.
The story was somewhat interesting, but you never get attached emotionally to the characters and the language is harsh. The language is so bad that it distracts from the film. By the end of the movie you’re not really feeling like you watched a great action movie or thriller, but you’re glad that it’s over. It’s just not fun and really pretty pointless.
Becky and I both didn’t like it that much. We thought it was at best a rental, but probably more like a Don’t Bother. The acting is the only thing this movie has going for it and as good as it is with Denzel Washington and John Travolta, they just can’t carry the movie.
