A TOP cast stars in ransom thriller, THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123 (15).
Denzel Washington is New York City subway dispatcher Walter Garber, whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime - the hijacking of a subway train.
John Travolta is Ryder, the criminal mastermind who, as leader of a highly-armed gang of four, threatens to execute the train's passengers unless a large ransom is paid within one hour.
As the tension mounts beneath his feet, Garber employs his vast knowledge of the subway system in a battle to outwit Ryder and save the hostages.
But there's one riddle Garber can't solve - even if the thieves get the money, how can they possibly escape?
Directed by Tony Scott, this is a remake of the 1974 film starring Walter Matthau as Garber and Robert Shaw as Ryder.
