Hoezo in KINO

“We had a bomb scare in the Bronx yesterday, but it turned out to be a cantaloupe.” This kidnap-for-ransom thriller sees a crew of colour codenamed criminals (Tarantino borrowed that from this movie) hijacking a NYC subway train for a sizable payday. This edge-of-your-seat nailbiter with Walter Matthau and Robert Shaw becomes a battle of wills between ruthless criminals and the Metropolitan Police, with the lives of the hostages in the balance. A true genre classic and beautifully restored to boot, this film is a sight to behold on the big screen. English language without subtitles.

Storyline

In New York City, a criminal gang led by the ruthless “Mr. Blue” (Robert Shaw) hijacks a subway car and threatens to start shooting one passenger per minute unless they receive a million dollars in cash from the city within an hour. On the other end of the line, crusty veteran transit policeman Zachary Garber (Walter Matthau) has his hands full dealing with the mayor’s office and his hotheaded fellow cops, while also trying to deliver the ransom before the deadline expires.
