A remake has come in 2009, with John Travolta & Denzel Washinton, with about the same name. Before I'm gonna see the new version, I made sure I watched the old version, in case it's better, which older version of films (example: The Day the Earth Stood Still) usally am.
The movie got a great set of atmosphere, especially when you think of how they hijacked the train, why they do it and the question you alway have in your head; How can they come out this mess... You can easly see that this movie could have been filmed today, and not only for 30-40 years ago, which is good (for me that is).
The Actors do a great job, maybe not the best job in the world, but still... The music from the film is very good, and kind of fits good. The special effects is not that bad, actually they are pretty good (especially when you think 1974).
So all in all a very entertaining action/thriller film!
