A touchstone in the action genre...

"Now, then, ladies and gentlemen, do you see this gun? It fires 750 rounds of 9-millimeter ammunition per minute. In other words, if all of you simultaneously were to rush me, not a single one of you would get any closer than you are right now. I do hope I've made myself understood."

The type of gritty, ruthless thriller that could only emerge during the '70s, Joseph Sargent's class... read more

One of those super cool movies from yesterday. Matthau and Shaw are perfectly matched as adversaries who never see each other face to face until the final chapter. Movies like this aren't being made anymore. With it's sharp humor, snappy dialog and gritty action one can understand the influence this flick would have on future film makers like Quentin Tarantino.

Entertaining action/thriller

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 ... read more

"15.2. Kliinisen tehokas herrasmiesjoukko kaappaa metrojunan ja vaatii miljoonalunnaita tai panttivankeja alkaa kupsahtaa. Epäusko siitä, että tällaista voi ylipäänsä tapahtua, häiritsee jonkin verran pelastustoimia, mutta suurin vaara panttivankien hengelle löytyy metroa pyörittävän firman toksisesta työkulttuurista, jossa miehet eivät kuuntele mitään saatanan paskaa joltain pikkunilkeiltä. The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3 on samanaikaisesti sekä hemmetin toimiva jännäri että i"

"9.2. Blu-ray Varmasti ainoa näkemäni rautateihin edes liittyvä elokuva (näistä ei, myönnettäköön, pitkää listaa saa), joka onnistuu olemaan ammattilaisenkin silmin uskottava, eikä turhauta typeryyksillään. Pienet havainnokkaat yksityiskohdat, kuten kulkutien varmistaminen, lämmitävät. Pelkästään tämän vuoksi pohdin alkuun vakavasti bonuspisteitä. On se niin merkittävä seikka junakaappauselokuvan toimivuuden kannalta. Edes kuolleen miehen kytkimen ohituskeino ei häirits"
