Walter Garber (Denzel Washington) is a New York City subway dispatcher whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime: the hijacking of a subway train. Ryder (John Travolta), the criminal mastermind behind the hijacking and 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.

I was an instant fan of the original 1974 "Taking", which at the time was one of the most gripping psychological thrillers released, even though I first saw it on network TV years after its theatrical release. The 2009 version, though quite exciting and fast paced, does not live up to the psychological part, and in my opinion its story lines and plot devices pale in comparison to Joseph Sargent's original masterpiece. Hard to imagine that Tony Scott chose to stray so far from Sargent's original plot and underlying themes, which were so brilliant, but he does. As far as I'm concerned, this contributes much to the complete detriment of this film. This film does however, make for good accompaniment to popcorn munching if you never saw the original, and if you've got really good popcorn. If you did see the original, the ending especially will leave you totally unsatisfied. That is, provided John Travolta's over the top portrayal of the original "Mr. Blue" character hasn't already left you bewildered and dismayed.

I've seen this movie and it's ok, however I'm a movie slip cover collector.. Wal-mart.com listed this a Blu-Ray essentials packing, however after ordering and waiting this was NOT the case. I got the movie and there was NO Blu-Ray Essentials slip cover!! In fact others I know that ordered this it happened to them as well!.. If you are ordering just for the movie then your good to go, if ordering for a slip cover then buyer BEWARE, do NOT order this!!..!!..
