    As lonewolf says, it was not made clear whether DW's character was guilty or had just made up the story to save a passenger. The implication is that he was guilty, but we find out that there were unclear circumstances.
    Okay thanks "Roger Ebert" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    It was never made clear (to me) if Denzel's character was actually guilty of the charges he was accused of or if he confessed to placate Travolta.
    I thought the silliest scene was where he argued with his wife on the phone about whether to bring home a gallon or half-gallon of milk while the copter waited, with clock ticking down, to take him to deliver the ransom to save lives.

    Maybe it is just me, but every time I am delivering a $10 mill ransom under the gun, I just go ahead and spring for the extra half-gallon. .
    Agreed I wouldn't be arguing with someone and people's lives are at stake.

    How can one improve on perfection? :twisted:

    Nice review, Marlow!

    Turturro and the guy from the Sopranos were good too.

    Total coincidence that Bonds, Sosa and I have the same hat size: 10 1/2!

    I may be in troouble, don't know how you unsee a movie if it does not meet his approval.
    Now lonewolf, I thought we've been through all this before. Do NOT attempt to emulate trained professionals like myself, and try to ideate an original critical cinematic thought! This is intellectually dangerous work, and should not, under any circumstances be attempted at home by an untrained amateur - dire circumstances could eventuate! When you need an opinion I would be happy to provide a certified one. In this case, I will quote THE current opinion I hold on the movie. You have my permission to cite it - in its entirety, if need be - to insure that no harm comes to your brain or anyone else's (especially on this board where I witness NO ONE else capable of an original thought about a movie). Here is the synopsis of my APPROVED review:

    "This seems like an odd one to remake, but the plot has morphed, and Denzel and Travolta infuse it with the proper star quality, as they do a great job of racheting up the intensity. Director Tony Scott, taking some pointers from big bro, Ridley, has made a taut, suspenseful examination of the two men in opposition – Denzel’s everydayman vs. Travolta’s manic criminal mind. The resolution is believable, but it’s also a poetically just ending."

    Enjoy!
    :wink:

    I liked it too, LW.

    I thought the performances were better than the movie however.

    Great cast, even beyond Denzel and Travolta.

    And you didn't check with Marlow either. I mean we pay him the big bucks to tell us what to watch. He is so dedicated, he won't even eat the popcorn.
