Denzel Washington reunites with director Tony Scott for the first time since "Deja vu" Both of the Scotts are brilliant film-makers, but I believe Tony is definitely more fun than his brother Ridley. Tony's style is one that bursts with frenetic energy and is well-suited for the "thinking-man's" action pictures he is known for.
"Pelham" is remake of a film starring Walter Matthau and the story revolves around the hijacking of a subway train, Pelham 123. The chief hostage-taker is John Travolta at his unhinged bad-ass best. Denzel Washington plays a dispatcher in his battered-everyman style. If you're looking for anything new here, you won't find it, but if you are looking for an adrenaline rush with visual verve, look no further......
Note: In keeping with the title of this blog, I must mention that I saw this film in auditorium 1 of Tigard 11 cinemas, (the complex's biggest screen) the wheelchair seats are excellent in this auditorium, and decent in the other medium-sized auditoriums. The smaller auditoriums still have seats in the back only.
I like your writing style. I wasn't too excited when I saw the trailers for this movie, but you have piqued my interest.ReplyDelete
Interesting. I didn't have a desire to see this film, but I think I do now. Thanks for the review. And really Kris... you have quite the talent for writing. (not that I didn't know that already). But, you can write is so many different forms, it's great! Keep it up. Any family films on the future review list? I am thinking of taking Andrew to Up as his first movie ever.ReplyDelete
