Even the Trailer Doesn't Measure Up

Trailers for The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 remake due out this summer and the original 1974 version.

Sigh. I hate to be so predictable, BUT I'm not impressed.

If the scene showing the crash of police car carrying the ransom money is any indication, my worst fears are confirmed and they're going to jazz it up Hollywood style.

It's also not clear how they're going to get around cell phones. These weren't around in the 1974, BUT ignoring them in 2009 leaves a HUGE plot hole.

I didn't hear the great theme music either.

I say just rent the original (my review from 2007).
