In The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, John Travolta stars as Ryder, the criminal mastermind who, as a leader of a highly-armed gang of four, threatens to execute New York subway train passengers unless a large ransom is paid within one hour. Denzel Washington stars as subway dispatcher Walter Garber, whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by the hijacking. 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?
