The Taking of Pelham 123

Post by Bone Daddy » Wed Jun 20, 2007 5:01 am

Was this the true inspiration for this film? Little known, except to action genre fans, it has many of the key elements of Dogs. The Anderson File also resembles Dogs in many ways. So I ask the pros what their take is on the tie-in between these three films.

The only likeness I can remember is the codenames like Mr. Green and Mr. Blue etc...

I love Pelham 123. QT def took the color names idea from it, but other than that they dont really have much in common. Pelham is a hostages being held for ransom on a subway train movie.

All 3 films were capers gone sour. Plot wise, obviously they were dissimilar, but characters in all 3 films seemed the same to me.

Isn't the correct title "The Anderson Tapes"?
