The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009 film)

Recommended Posts

Definitely. If it's good. Backed by a good director and multiple good actors, but the writer has some question marks and that's what matters most.

 

P.S. - You gave us the wrong link. Go here.

I hate that they used an R62 made it look like an 142. It looked horrable they should have used an redbird or an normal looking R62/A.

Well the whole point of the film, besides remaking the story, is to paint a new image of the subway (to outsiders), i.e. showcasing the NTTs, and there are no single unit NTTs so this is what they did for the scene where the first car breaks off the train. Of course when we see it we'll be able to tell.

That's the thing. They're using R142As for this film, which do not come in single cars, hence the R62 "NTT".

Maybe also they wont use R142As, unless the production pays High. Since these cars were recently Built (around 2001-2003). Maybe the MTA will allow an older car, R62? or the original R22 from the movie of 1973

I'll certainly go and see it the first night it's out :D. Anyway, guys, it's been said many times that they're using an R62 made to look like an R142 (and it's pretty good, I've seen pictures).

They can't... they've already filmed the subway car parts apparently.

I say put that thing back into service as is... with the exception of the controls of course, those have to be restored. Would make a nice anomaly against the R62A monotony.

The pics of the converted R62 looks great. They even painted the yellowish panels in the cab. I don't think that it would look all that bad if R62s were rebuilt like that. The one thing I don't get is what looks like an operators console on the off side end of the cab. There is even a strip map too.

HELL NO!

 

You dont remake a masterpiece.

 

The first attempted remake for ABC in the 90's was an atrocity in itself.

Its going back into service, but not like that. The movie studio paid to have the R62A look like that, and they're paying to put it back to normal for service again.

Why would it cause a delay on the Lexington Avenue line?

 

They probably did move it around late nights.

I don't know if it'll be a good movie. A lot of remakes of good movies turn out to be not good. I'm just going to see because my uncle was an extra. He may not even be in the movie if they decided to cut out a part where he was shown.
