The original film was far superior and will be remembered in years to come while the current remake will soon be forgotten. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- 'The Taking of Pelham 123' is not a bad film: it's ponderous and shallow, but always watchable. But what it crucially fails to do, especially in the light of its illustrious predecessor, is justify its own existence. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- In yet another blander-than-bland remake of a classic film, flash-over-substance specialist Tony Scott takes Joseph Sargent's taut, 1974 action-thriller and processes it through the multiplex mulching machine. Full Review

[A] fascinating portrait of how much New York has changed in 35 years, the film delivers the goods in excitement and big-star charisma...

[T]he new film, directed by Tony Scott, captures some of the grand venality of New York that make the original so much fun....John Travolta is in high manic mode, seething and unpredictable, violent and charismatic...
