Critics reviews

Aside from the riveting THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE, Sargent has mostly worked as a director of television, and that efficient, no-frills style pays big dividends here. With the sound off, it practically looks like an industrial training film (well, aside from Susan Clark’s nude scene).
