Superior exercise in urban paranoia; the superb location work of director Joseph Sargent goes a long way toward tempering the artificialities of the plot.
The original version of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three was made 35 years ago, yet it retains a quality of cool that will remain long after people have forgotten the current version.
The Taking of Pelham One Two Three is a good action caper about a subway car heist under the streets of Manhattan.
Darkened encounters with the ghost of Abe Beame don't come more giddily thrilling.
