The Taking of Pelham One Two Three
Crime • R • 1974 • 1 hr 44 min
A solid classic forgotten now, except by movie fans. The new one is good, but this is quality. Make time and be rewarded.
Taut 70s heist populated with terrific ensemble of character actors playing both cops, robbers and every-men. Quintessential 70s NY grit.
An excellent heist movie that laid the groundwork for many after it. Robert Shawn’s performance can’t be beat.
This is like the most NY movie ever. No one is that upset about people dying or anything more that it is a huge inconvenience
Terrific heist film watch this instead of the latest version the story fits the time.
An exciting crime/hostage thriller. Amazing with fanatical Shaw and wisecracking Matthau. I prefer this film over recent version.
Fantastic. Robert Shaw is so eloquent and slick. One of my new favorite endings to a film.
Fantastic ‘70s heist thriller, great cast, takes cues from disaster flicks but more successfully, recommended to fans od#f Dog Day Afternoon
A thriller with well-rounded performances from all, though Shaw chews each scene he’s in. Plot gets you hooked. Subtle ending is amazing.
Such a classic. This movie is slow but keeps you interested the whole time. Top notch performances from everyone involved.
