Comparing The Takings of Pelham 123


Today, Tony Scott’s rendition of The Taking of Pelham 123 hits theaters. Lovers of Pelham subway-related film will know that the movie is based on a novel by Morton Freedgood (psuedonym: John Godey), in which four armed men hijack a New York City subway train and hold its hostages for ransom. It’s been made into a film twice before: Once in Joseph Sargent’s 1974 film The Taking of Pelham One Two Three starring Walter Matthau, and again as a 1998 TV movie starring Edward James Olmos.

As a  fan of Joseph Sargent’s original film, I thought it might be interesting to compare his version with Scott’s new version, as I think some of the choices Scott made are pretty fascinating. If you haven’t seen the original, I’d suggest you watch before you read this, as I think it’s a great film that still holds up today. For obvious reasons, this article will contain massive spoilers for Joseph Sargent’s version of the film (1974) and Tony Scott’s version (2009). [Hit the jump at your own risk!]
