In "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3," Denzel Washington stars as New York City subway dispatcher Walter Garber, whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime: the hijacking of a subway train. John Travolta stars as Ryder, the criminal mastermind who, as 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?
SPIRITUAL POINT OF VIEW
The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 hits on so many vital life issues with Biblical connections. My review includes video clips from the movie for each of the following:
1. Transforming Moments
There are moments in every life that change us. These can be “God moments” in which we realize the need to be who we are created to be. --John 9:25
2. What Is The Value Of Human Life?
-- Psalm 8:4-7
3. Impacting The Moment
Since we do not know tomorrow, today is all we have. Each day matters. Make the most of each moment. --Psalm 39:4
4. Difficult, But Hope-Filled Conversations
This is an amazing conversation between a husband and wife, that sees beyond the current difficulty and focuses on a simple goal (get milk). --2 Thessalonians 2:16
5. The Demand For Money Creates Larger Problems.
Lust for money brings trouble and nothing but trouble. Going down that path, some lose their footing in the faith completely and live to regret it bitterly ever after. --1 Timothy 6:19
