The Worth Watching - Pelham 123

The Taking of Pelham 123- Is a movie worth to watch. Really people, no dissapointments, just a nice flow.

I just watch this movie last night on HBO. It's a 2009 movie, and yeah, it was in the cinema last year but you know that I don't go to cinemas. Okay back to the story. This movie is my favourite after Die Hard and some other action pack movies. One thing that to me is very cool about this movie is that they don't show women's butts to get to the highest rank on the most watched movie. Which to me, is very sensible thing ever. Because you can see that all James Bond movies has unnecessary women-that-show-off-their-legs and big pouty redded mouth to attract watchers but not Pelham 123. Directed by Tony Scott and actored by two famous actors; Denzel Washington and John Travolta, this movie is another baskin robin for those who love action pack movies, like me. hehe.

So here is the plot that I got from the internet.

In early afternoon, four armed men hijack a subway train in Manhattan. They stop on a slight incline, decoupling the first car to let the rest of the train coast back. Their leader is Ryder; he connects by phone with Walter Garber, the dispatcher watching that line. Garber is a supervisor temporarily demoted while being investigated for bribery. Ryder demands $10 million within an hour, or he'll start shooting hostages. He'll deal only with Garber. The mayor okays the payoff, the news of the hostage situation sends the stock market tumbling, and it's unclear what Ryder really wants or if Garber is part of the deal. Will hostages, kidnappers, and negotiators live through this?

Well watch this movie if you wanna know how it ended. One thing for sure is that Washington is now one of my favourite hollywood actor(;
