Matthew King's rating of the film The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

For me it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I'm not a Tony Scott fan and I loved the original, but for an action film from todays "remake factory" aka Hollywood, I wouldn't place it in the "shit pile", maybe the "ho hum" pile. Hollywood pumps out worse each and every week.
