The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 [imdb] [amazon] is a great cheap date for a Saturday Night. It’s a guy movie that even my wife likes! It’s a “caper picture” – several armed men hijack a subway car in New York City. It’s filled with wonderful character actors. I like that the characters are cynical and smartasses. Any movie where even the bit players get to have great, funny lines is on the right track. In too many movies, only the stars get to shine. In this one, everyone gets to play.
