The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

 (2009)

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Walter Garber is a New York City subway dispatcher whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime: the hijacking of a subway train. Ryder, the criminal mastermind behind the hijacking and leader of a highly-armed gang of four, threatens to execute the train's passengers unless a large ransom is paid within one hour. 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?

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 arrives on Blu-ray with a strong 1080p. 2.39:1-framed transfer. This one delivers everything discerning viewers have come to expect of a Sony new release. The film's grain structure is left intact throughout, providing to the image a pleasant film-like quality; likewise, other signs of artificial image manipulation are not present. The transfer reveals extraordinary levels of fine detail throughout; though the bleaker subway car interior and tunnel exterior shots don't have much to offer from a visual perspective, the rest of the image shines. Close-ups of faces reveal -- and probably much to the chagrin of the actors -- every pore, imperfection, and stubble of facial hair. Several birds-eye view shots of New York City look positively amazing; there's not a soft edge or dulled detail to be seen, and the image retains impeccable clarity in every shot and at any distance. The film features a broad range of color presentation; the interior of the subway car takes on a somewhat murky, green tint, with not much opportunity for sparkling hues, but the scenes above in New York City and inside the control center feature a nice, clean, and clear palette that looks wonderful, from bright yellow taxis to the Mayor's red tie. Black levels are beautifully rendered; the subway tunnel scenes deliver pitch-perfect dark shadows that retain an inky tone with nary a hint of gray. Likewise, flesh tones appear accurately rendered. The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 looks excellent on Blu-ray in every regard.


The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 pulls onto Blu-ray with an impressive DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Like the video, this one delivers a positively booming yet clear and entertaining soundtrack that's the norm from Sony action-oriented titles. Though The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 is primarily a dialogue-heavy film, there are still plenty -- just somewhat scattered -- opportunities for the soundtrack to shine. Listeners will not only hear but also feel the subway car speeding down the tracks in one early scene; even later in the picture as the cars are separated, the more slowly meandering movements along the track deliver a full and lifelike sonic experience. The rear channels are fully utilized throughout; not only do the subway cars rattle through the soundstage, but police sirens blare in several scenes and general ambience -- both in external city shots and inside the control room -- place the listener squarely into the experience. Several scenes featuring gunfire erupt nicely, particularly those shots that reverberate through the subway tunnels. Music enjoys a crystal-clear and distortion-free presentation with a robust low-end support, and dialogue reproduction is consistently faultless. The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 sounds just as good as it looks on Blu-ray.
