    Synopsis


    Unstoppable
    In this action thriller from director Tony Scott, rookie train operator Will (Chris Pine) and grizzled veteran engineer Frank (Denzel Washington) learn that a runaway locomotive carrying carloads of dangerous chemicals is headed for Will's small Pennsylvania hometown, where his wife and child live. In order to save the day, they must figure out how to catch up to the rogue engine, and stop it before harm comes to the town. Standing in their way is Galvin (Kevin Dunn), the head of the company who is more interested in saving the stock price than lives. On the plus side, the duo have competent corporate employee Connie (Rosario Dawson) on the radio, talking them through their various attempts to corral and then stop the potentially lethal locomotive. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      Enjoyable action based on true story

      I don't regret purchasing this movie, but I wouldn't call it a favorite. I like that it is rooted in actual events, albeit with a lot of dramatic license added to spice up the real-life story. The director's camera shots add a lot of interest at various times. The characters, themselves, are not all that engaging or developed as they should be in a modern movie, and coupled with weak acting from the supporting roles, it really conspires to hold this movie back from being more than 'good'. I love trains, the selfless struggles of the heroes, a few surprises, camera action, and the good ending. It's a good movie that you'll enjoy if you manage your expectations up front concerning the A-list actors.

      This film starring Chris Pine and Denzel Washington is an excellent dramatization based on actual events. The film is smart in that it uses all the right technical terms for the subject matter of trains and train engineers, and yet it is appealing to the wider appeal of the mass market by showing that to the general public, who might not be too familiar with train engineering terminology. The cinematography and visuals are excellent. The acting is superb. The movie made me care about what happens to the characters, and I actually cheered at the ending. I believe this film is one of those universal appeal films where anyone can have a good time watching it even if it's outside your usual genre.

      An unstoppable ride

      This film is about the attempts to stop an unmanned train full of dangerous chemicals travelling at high speed, endangering the lives of thousands of people living along the tracks. "Unstoppable" gets right to the point, action already starts ten minutes into the film. After that, the thrills get better and better. As a result, the film keeps you glued to the screen with increasing intensity. Early on in the film, I wondered if there was enough to fill the screen time, but there was actually enough to make it action packed, without slow, pacing scenes to interrupt the action. "Unstoppable" is a good action film, relatively free from blood and violence which is rather rare for an action film these days.

      Unstoppable is a story loosely-based on an actual event that took place in Ohio in 2001 involving a runaway locomotive. Denzel Washington and Chris Pine give engaging, if not spectacular, performances as the engineer and conductor who help save the day. Tony Scott's direction (his last film before his suicide, by the way) is solid and workmanlike. The film has a documentary feel too it without losing any of it's appeal. As the runaway picks up speed so does the film. Viewers will find the movie engrossing and hard to "stop" watching. There are a few DVD extras with the disk, but not appealing enough to add much to the purchase.

      The best action movie since "Speed"

      This movie is a great non-stop action movie with great acting and a well written script. Denzel Washington is always an amazing actor and a relatively unknown Chris Pine works well as the rookie conductor. The story is exciting, though the writers can't take all the credit for that given that this is based on actual events. I do have to take issue with some of the camera work. There seems to be way too many camera shots that spin around the focus of attention, to the point that it gets a little dizzy. Though this one flaw seems minor in comparison to the rest of the film, and not enough to lose a star overall.

      Watching this movie again after some six years only reinforced its dramatic interaction between Frank (Denzel Washington) and Will (Chris Pine), and the tense sequences with the train. Take a look at the special features and you will come to understand what it took to make a film like this, considering all the stunts and crash scenes were done in-camera (meaning no CGI for you young folks)! It is still a tension-ridden ride on the rails...

      I really enjoyed this movie. I watched it with my wife on a 65" 4k screen. The movie had a great storyline, and kept me alert, engaged, and at the edge of my seat. I didn't quute know what to expect, initially. But, I wss very happy with the purchase. And, the movie definitely exceeded my e, pectations. It was certainly one of the top five (5) movies that I've seen within the last twelve (12) months. I appreciate the action and crash scenes. I believe this story was loosely based on a true story. Excellent movie. I would c er tainly recommend this movie to my family and friends.

      A wild ride, a compelling adventure

      I'm usually immune to special effects--over-the-top ones are cliche and generally get in the way of the rest of the movie---provided there IS a rest of the movie, minus the special effects--but not this time! My heart was in my mouth more times than I could count. It's easy to forget you're watching a movie. The acting is top-notch, the characters are engaging, and it has an almost documentary treatment that makes the movie situation feel immediate, and real! See it.
