Anthony Allen’s Review Of The Taking Of Pelham 123

My jobless, Skol drinking friend of mine watched the film last night and felt compelled to write this review in between visits to the bookies and jobcentre.

“… typical Tony Scott, He’s more like Michael Bay’s brother than Ridley’s!… It made me motion sick. If The Prodigy turned their hand to remixing films they would look like ‘Pelham‘, John Travolta is not as annoying as he was in Broken Arrow, Swordfish and Battlefield Earth. Denzel is not as good as he was in Training Day, Malcolm X and erm, The Bone Collector! Haven’t seen the original but I know without watching it it’s better.
3 out of 5.”

Cheers Ant.

    mmm…but i’m really lookin forward to this remake ! And belive this or not i actually prefer Tony Scott to Ridley Scott…who is the probably the most over rated film maker in Hollywood ! The original is wicked with Robert Shaw on top form.
