Falling short of all our expectations, it’s just run on the mill thriller. Besides there’s no much thrill in the plot of hijacking a subway train to give you enough excitement of compelling watch. There’s neither passion nor intensity in the lead characters. John Travolta plays rough hijacker criminal with verbal/facial rage and Denzel Washington underplays his negotiator employee task; though Denzel carried the role quite sincerely. Director Tony Scott has just utilized the screen image of both these actors and that’s make it so mediocre outlook. Even the action and thrill sequences are so ordinary one.
One more Hollywood disappointment of the last year.
