John Travolta plays a brawny, brainy thug, chugging down New York streets into the bowels of the city with a grim, directed bravado that's the opposite of his gleeful swagger 32 years ago in Saturday Night Fever. Denzel Washington plays the subdued, out-of-shape subway supervisor who improbably becomes the chief negotiator for the city when Travolta and his gang commandeer a subway cab and two passenger cars and hold a score of hostages for $10 million. That rat-and-cat game isn't enough reason to see The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3. It's a remake of the effective 1974 suspense film that starred Robert Shaw and Walter Matthau in, respectively, the rough equivalent of Travolta's and Washington's roles.

Patricia Pelham's two jobs are a mile apart on either side of Druid Hill Park, yet they might as well be in different worlds. Which, in a way, they are. In her day job, Pelham has one foot in outer space: As a configurations manager at the Space Telescope Science Institute, she works on the software that positions the Hubble Space Telescope to capture images of galaxies colliding 420 million light years away.
