The original will never be approached. Reply ChickenUnderwear February 14, 2009 - 1:46 pm Looks like Vinny Barbarino turned bad Reply rhywun February 14, 2009 - 4:03 pm It looks dreadful, as I expected. All action and zero charm. Didn’t they trash this classic once already with a TV movie a few years ago…? Reply herenthere February 14, 2009 - 9:43 pm Other than the fact that nowhere throughout the entire trailer did I feel goosebumps or a sense of OMGIHAVETOSEETHIS, it looks like they transformed the R62 into a 142 pretty well, except for the in-train LED sign (text size looks a little too big). Reply herenthere February 14, 2009 - 10:30 pm OMG BIG MISTAKE: In the trailer, a 6 train is shown to be stopping at the 7‘s Grand Central platform. They probably did it for looks though-the platform’s decor is unique. Reply Benjamin Kabak February 16, 2009 - 2:36 pm I saw that too. The railfans are going to have a field day with this. Much of the movie was filmed on the outer, abandoned platforms at Hoyt-Schermerhorn too as far as I know. Reply MAL February 15, 2009 - 2:24 am Well, this beats People v. Goetz, doesn’t it, Kabak? Reply Benjamin Kabak February 16, 2009 - 2:35 pm Oh, it sure does. The original is a pretty great movie actually too. Reply Todd February 17, 2009 - 10:03 am I like it! Now the question is, should I see the original version first? Reply Patrick February 17, 2009 - 1:22 pm Why is the train call Pelham 1-2-3?
