The taking of Pelham 123

Denzel and Travolta in The Taking of Pelham 123 review

Recently i watched The  taking of Pelham 123. I thought this thriller worked really well, the fast pace and quick cuts really keep you on the edge of your seat.  The film is stylised(the credits). The sound and the silence used helped to build suspense.  The way the film kept the audience in the dark was really good, leaving subtle hints to keep us guessing. What i also liked about the film is that the ending wasn't like a typical ending  in the sense that Ryder wanted Garber to shoot him, whereas in typical cop films the villain try's shooting at the 'good guy' before being shot themselves.
