||Fast paced, compelling hijack thriller|
Taking of Pelham One Two Three review An excellent crimne thriller with a first-rate cast, including Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw, Martin Balsam and a very young Hector Elizondo! Teh plot is simple: four armed men hijack a New York City subweay train, hold the passengers hostage and demand a million-dollar ransom for their release.

Taking of Pelham One Two Three movie I knew the movie was pretty good but thought it would have a grainy and dull brown hue like a lot of seventies movies even after reading a good review on the video.
By a reviewer (florence alabama)
Taking of Pelham One Two Three video Good fast paced and proof that even a funny man like Matthau can make an action movie. Taking of Pelham One Two Three film Shaw and Elizondo steal the film as the two bickering high jackers.
