Travolta pesadão

Você stalingrado, está em cartaz nos cinemas o filme novo do John Travolta. E como John Travolta é a LOOZ que me ilumina, fui lá ver, toda faceira e serelepe. Quando me falaram que o protagonista pesava mais de 4 toneladas eu meio que tremeliquei dentro do meu coração, da minha alma. Não sabia que o Travolta taha nesse estado já. Quer dizer, ele fez Hairspray há dois anos atrás, mas aque... read more

Pedestrian, albeit enjoyable remake

"Life is simple now. They just have to do what I say."

The modern Hollywood remake train continues unabated with The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3; flash-over-substance specialist Tony Scott's reimagining of the crackling 1974 suspenser of the same name. In a sense, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 is similar to riding the subway: it moves forward at a decent pace, hitting all anticipated stops ... read more

good but not the original

the original Taking of Pelham ONE TWO THREE starred Walter Mathau (Bad News Bears, Grumpier old men) and Robert shaw(From Russia with Love) in one of his best performances to date. However the original film was racy,funny, and even ironic and yet very truthful to what the viewer was seeing. it also had a very unique cast which included Julius Harris, Jerry Stiller, Martin Balsam, and Hector Elizon... read more

"Katsottu: 7.2.2014, 2nd Watch TV:stä (TV 5) Tony Scottin (Koston liekki, Top Gun) toiseksi viimeisessä elokuvassa Ryder-niminen (John Travolta) kaappaa junan New Yorkissa ja päivystysmies Walter Garber (Denzel Washington) joutuu mukaan tilanteeseen tahtomattaan. Leffa pysyy kiinnostavana koko kestonsa ajan, ja ei käy tylsäksi kuten useimmat panttivankileffat. Muissa rooleissa nähdään viime vuonna kuollut James Gandolfini (Sopranos), John Turturro (Transformers) ja Luis Guzman (Boogie N"

" 23 Mar + Really entertaining + John Trevolta was great! - Washington's character was extremely unrealistic the last 15 munutes - Many technical gimmicks + Predictable"

" First Viewing Sub-par remake with surprisingly unmemorable work from it's leads (Though Travolta's final line makes me laugh for it's ham factor)."

"7.6.2013 I was surprised to see that there were like two scenes near the beginning where I liked Denzel Washington's acting and at least one of his conversations with Travolta, even though he seems to play the same role he always does. Well that was mostly in the beginning and other than that, camera sways in very nauseating ways all the time (and with that, it's in every possible way technically shitty) and Travolta swears and yells a lot, because he is so rough and crazy-ass, bad-ass criminal"

" Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garbe into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime. I always love Denzel Washington movies. It has a huge cast of well known actors such as John Travolta, John Torturro, and James Gandolfini. It was action packed from beginning to end with some A-list acting and some good thrills. The plot was interesting and fun. It was a diffe"
