3. The Incident (1967)
Approved | 107 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
Late one night, two young toughs hold hostage the passengers in one car of a New York subway train.
The photography is fuzzy, the characters are gold-plated stereotypes, the plot is obvious and advances automatically. But the movie works; it delivers the goods. It creates the suspense and fear it tries for.

The whole movie, indeed, feels longer than it is. It's 15 minutes short of two hours, and still it takes forever to be over.

9. Two-Minute Warning (1976)
R | 115 min | Drama, Thriller
A crazed sniper is set to kill spectators at an L.A. Coliseum football championship game and the police races against time to eliminate him.
I thought perhaps the movie would at least include a little pop sociology to soften its blood-letting. Not a chance. It's a cheerfully unashamed exploitation of two of our great national preoccupations, pro football and guns.

A tasteless unintentional parody of the life it attempts to dramatize, Wired butchers John Belushi's memory with a misguided screenplay and unnecessary recreations of classic performances.
