Denzel Washington vs. John Travolta, as directed by the chaotic mind of Tony Scott (“Man on Fire”, “Deja Vu”). Who wins? The audience, hopefully. Check out a behind-the-scenes look at the making (or is that remaking) of “The Taking of Pelham 123”, starring Travolta as as gun-toting maniac (he plays that so well, doesn’t he?) and Washington as the poor city official who has to stop him. Not an easy feat when you’re a poor city official. With homely glasses and a homely name like Walter to boot.
Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day’s work for dispatcher Walter Garbe into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
Starring Denzel Washington, John Travolta, Luis Guzmán, Victor Gojcaj, John Turturro, James Gandolfini, Michael Rispoli, and Ramon Rodriguez. Tony Scott directs.
