Philip Ingram's rating of the film The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

For what this movie was supposed to be, filler, it wasn't too bad. I expected nothing and came away thinking "that didn't suck". Yes, it's denzel playing his usual character, yes it's John Travolta playing a white mike Tyson, however the whole movie was kept pretty interesting and a good use of a Manhattan map for transitions. Meh, there are worse movies out there...
