The Taking of Pelham 123

Last night my mom and I went to see the advanced screening of The Taking of Pelham 123 starring Denzel Washington and John Travolta. It was a remake of the 1974 version in which armed men hijack a New York City subway train. Denzel plays the subway dispatcher who gets caught up in Travolta's, the leader of the hijackers, twisted game to become rich. Travolta's role in this movie reminded me of Face Off with Nicholas Cage. There was also a great supporting cast such as Luis Guzman (Traffic and Boogie Nights) and James Gandolfini (The Sopranos). A very good and suspenseful movie with lots of twists. I'm just sorry and saddened that Travolta can't partake in the press for this movie due to the morning of his son Jett. He did an awesome job. Loved this movie. Go check it out next Friday at a theater near you.

See Ya!
