This is the trailer for The Taking of Pelham 123 which is actually a remake of a 1974 film about a subway hijacking starring Walter Matthau. In this latest version, John Travolta and Denzell Washington play a couple of regular, working-class Joe Wifebeaters.  You can tell by their facial hair, you see. Anyway, this movie looks pretty boring.  But you know what wouldn’t be?  An Asian kid named “Denzell.”  Think about it.
