Remember 'Mr Blue' from "The Taking of Pelham 123" ?

 Vincent D'Onofrio as 'Mr Blue' in "The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3" [1998]

In New York, armed men hijack a subway car and demand a ransom for the passengers. Even if it's paid, how could they get away? Made-for-TV version of "The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three," in which Vincent D'Onofrio leads a team of hijackers on a quest to commandeer a New York subway train for a massive ransom.
Edward James Olmos and Lorraine Bracco play the police officers assigned to the tricky hostage situation; Donnie Wahlberg, Richard Schiff also star.

Thanks to TheVelocityofVincent for screen cap!

The one and only ;-) (way better than this wanna-be 'Travolta version') ...

There's also the original 1974 version with Walter Matthau, and Robert Shaw, which, despite lacking Vincent's presence, many still consider the best version.

Claire said...

Yeah, the original might be the 'classic' one - still I like the 2nd one better ;-)

Who could forget him? Sorry, but the Shaw/Matthau version is tame and boring. After you've watched the VDO one it's unwatchable.

As much as I love Vincent, the Walter Matthau version was more pure New York. However, never seen such a great looking really bad guy with Vincent as "Mr. Blue."
