The Bat and the Train
No pun intended - and I assume that most who have seen the movie will know what I am on about. Most movies are glad if they have one memorable scene ... this has at least two! Maybe some others stuck in your mind too (rooftop, court, dialog, raid(s) and so forth) ... one thing is for sure, you will also remember the cast! Well at least the 4 main characters! And while you may only remember the names of 3 of those stars, that is more than enough too.
Brian De Palma may have had some misses too, but he is a master of suspense ... and yes I wrote a and not the ... for reasons as some might say. Of course most will associate the with Hitchcock! And rightfully so I might add. But back to De Palma, who really knows how to edit and shoot a movie. Having Ennio Morricone do the soundtrack helps too .. both have a highlight with the Train station scene. Which may be a bit bad for the rest of the movie ... it may feel like it goes downhill from there .. but the actors do save it, even if it doesn't seem to have too many highlights after that ... well ok the rooftop ... and the court, but the train station is above and beyond ... touch the untouchables! Touching untouchables - that is the better pun!
