Taking of Pelham One Two Three, The (1974)
Amazing film, especially for when it was made.
This is a first-rate, on the edge of your seat movie. The actors and actresses are first rate. You will be wondering what is going to happen next, all the way to the climax of the movie. You will feel for the passengers of Pelham 1-2-3, as they deal with the hijacking of their subway.
The hijackers are quite ruthless, and have no reservations about gunning down the passengers with their sub-machine guns; if the passengers don't cooperate. Also, the hijackers don't allow a lot of time for their demands to be met.
Walter Matthau and Robert Shaw are fantastic, and the ending is absolutely brilliant!
