 Dangerous hijack

HBO See It First presents The Taking of Pelham 123 this Sunday, August 15 at 9 pm. The movie stars Denzel Washington, John Travolta, John Turturro and Luis Guzman. New York City subway  dispatcher Walter Garber’s ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime — the hijacking of a subway train. Ryder is 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, Walter employs his vast knowledge of the subway system in a battle to outwit Ryder and save the hostages. But there is one riddle Walter can’t solve even if the thieves get the money — how can they possibly escape?
