The new Pelham takes the chilling original premise and modifies it for an era steeped in technology, making for an energetic and engrossing adaptation.
Curiously, despite the ever-energetic Tony Scott at the throttle, the sleek new edition isn't as transporting as it should have been.
Yet most of the film's energy is generated by flamboyant cinematography and music-video cutting, and much of that energy is false.
