Denzel Washington Rides Pelham 123

Taking Pelham 123

There was a time in Hollywood when all pitches revolved around the phrase “It’s like Die Hard, but.” For example, Speed was Die Hard, but on a bus! Under Siege 2 was Die Hard, but on a train! Now Denzel Washington brings us the latest in a long line of imitative films, Die Hard, but on a Subway!

Ok, so maybe I’m a bit harsh, but read the synopsis and make your own decisions. The Taking of Pelham 123 was originally a thriller novel about terrorists hijacking a subway train, holding the passengers hostage in exchange for money, and its up to just one man, the grizzled and quite possibly washed up chief detective of subway security. Yeah. Super Subway Cop on patrol. But it gets better! The leader of the terrorists? None other than John Travolta!

Take a gander at the pics and you decide if you’re excited. I know I’m not. Take the Pelham in July, 2009. Just don’t be Ellis.
