About this movie

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?

Not sure what happened to my review that I posted in 2020 when I first watched it, which is kinda upsetting since its happening to most of my reviews where they just disappear so I guess I have no choice but to post it again. One of the best movies I've ever seen with both my favorite actors featured in - Denzel Washington & John Travolta. Although the ending could be better like what happens to Grabner? Does he get his job back? Does he get pardoned? Does the media call him a hero? Does the mayor re-run due to how inspired he was by Grabher? Other than that it was PERFECT. Especially the negotiator and the mayor actor as well as Ramos. All actors I know from other movies. Once again, it is the best movies I have ever seen. Would watch it over and over again.
