Movie Reviews

Rolling Stone - 9/10 by Peter Travers It's a first-class ride. All aboard.
TV Guide Magazine - 9/10 by Jason Buchanan While director Tony Scott's brash and boisterous take on the material may lack that certain '70s quirkiness, it gets just about everything else exactly right.
New York Post - 8/10 by Lou Lumenick The new "Pelham," although no classic, is a lot of fun if you're in the right mood.
ReelViews - 8/10 by James Berardinelli Gripping and compelling, and doesn't make us wish we had checked our brains at the theater entrance.
USA Today - 8/10 by Claudia Puig The new Pelham takes the chilling original premise and modifies it for an era steeped in technology, making for an energetic and engrossing adaptation.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum Scott gets into the zip and rush of urban energy with an enthusiasm bordering on hilarity.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Mick LaSalle Has all the usual virtues of a good action suspense drama, but it lacks that extra something - that context, that vital interchange - that made the original "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3" such a memorable experience in 1974.
New Orleans Times-Picayune - 8/10 by Mike Scott Tony Scott pushes all the right buttons, crafting a worthy -- and in many ways, a superior -- update.
The New York Times - 8/10 by A.O. Scott Even at a distance from each other (Washington/Travolta), they conduct a tag-team master class in old-style movie star technique, barreling through every cliché and nugget of corn the script has to offer with verve and conviction. Even when you don't really believe them, they're always a lot of fun to watch.
Chicago Reader - 8/10 by J.R. Jones Crisp supporting turns by John Turturro (as a hostage negotiator) and James Gandolfini (as the mayor) combine with plenty of vehicular mayhem to make this a superior diversion.
Variety - 8/10 by Todd McCarthy More than anything a fascinating portrait of how much New York has changed in 35 years, the film delivers the goods in excitement and big-star charisma.
New York Daily News - 8/10 by Joe Neumaier A fast and relentless hostage thriller that never stops.
