The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

I was going to pass on seeing The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 in the theater, but the allure of the classic hostage story and Travolta as the bad ass, drew me to the theater today. The story is your basic nut-job-takes-hostages-and-has-a-gun. There's an economic twist that lends the motivation and fuels the crazy. The performances and the visuals really made it for me. There is a huge jab at authority. The NYPD on souped up motorcycles was ridiculous, but those scenes were easy to ignore. An entertaining film. I'll think of it every time I ride a 6 train *yikes*
