    Amazon.com

    Orson Welles once said that directing a movie was like playing with the greatest toy train set in the world, and Tony Scott seems to be taking him literally. With the caboose of Scott's Taking of Pelham 123 barely in the distance, the filmmaker turned to Unstoppable, a train-chase picture loosely inspired by a true story (and perhaps just a smidgen by Runaway Train, the 1985 film based on an Akira Kurosawa script). At a Pennsylvania rail yard, some clueless workers let an unmanned train get loose, and the thing is soon hurtling across the countryside. Did we mention that it's pulling a few cars' worth of highly toxic material? Did you doubt it would be? Meanwhile, old-time engineer Denzel Washington and new conductor Chris Pine are making a routine run nearby--of course, in the movies, a routine run almost always turns into something wild. This odd couple is the only hope for stopping the runaway, while upper management dithers and an operations-room dispatcher (Rosario Dawson) spends most of the movie talking into her headset. Scott is an unabashed manipulator, and he yanks all the strings at his disposal for this whipped-up pageant: song cues, hype-filled reaction shots, stunts aplenty. It's all so aggressive, it makes you wish the exciting story could be allowed to tell itself. But the pulse does quicken, if you can turn your mind off for a while. And although it's faint praise, the movie is undeniably better than Pelham 123. --Robert Horton

    5.0 out of 5 stars Hold Your Breath! Here Comes The Train! November 26, 2010
    Format:DVD
    Chris Pine has really become quite the actor. I saw him first as Captain Kirk in Star Trek, and since then, I have gone back to watch a couple of his earlier movies along with the lower-budget Sci-Fi flick, "Carriers." In "Unstoppable," he really turns on the heat, and side-by-side with good ol' Denzel, he shines.

    Here was a movie that, while viewing the trailers, I was thinking, "Really? An entire movie about a runaway train?" Well, the resounding answer is, "YES!" An excellent back-story, along with a perfect amount of character-building to get us to really like these people, made for a foundation on which to build one heck of an over-the-top mountain of suspense! In addition to Chris, Denzel Washington was excellent, as always, and the rest of the acting crew, especially Rosario Dawson, were perfectly cast and on top of their game as well. The main character was more than just a menace, though, it was downright deadly...THE TRAIN!

    A review I read on another site said that this movie started slow, but by the time Chris and Denzel's characters got in on the action it was non-stop fun. Well, I'm here to tell you that this movie gets rolling within the first five minutes...literally...rolling. The action and suspense builds by leaps and bounds, second-by-second. On more than one occasion, "Unstoppable" gets you to hold your breath in anticipation of the next scene, or simply steals it altogether. This one comes highly recommended.

    This is now one of Tony Scott's masterpieces. Great work to all! Five stars! *****

    5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Fun February 9, 2011
    By mjwatts
    Format:Blu-ray
    Why is it that people love going to the movies so much? Escapism. This is exactly what this movie is. Great escapism.

    This movie is pure fun. It's loud, fast, and once it gets going it keeps you at the edge of your seat until it's done. It's one of those movies where once you reach the end, you feel like you've been holding your breath the entire time. It gets your heart pounding.

    Anyone who likes Speed would like this movie.

    4.0 out of 5 stars And you think you had a rough day at work... November 22, 2010
    Format:DVD
    When human error leads to the spectacle of a fully powered, unmanned freight train carrying toxic materials at over 70 mph into a heavily populated area, a veteran railroader (Denzel Washington) and a rookie (Chris Pine) must work together to bring it to a halt while the nation watches on cable television.

    I've been waiting for a really good runaway train movie since...well, "Runaway Train," and it's finally here. Director Tony Scott lets nothing stand in the way of the action, yet still manages to present characters we care about and an intelligent story (screenwriter Mark Bomback) that clearly explains the factors that led to the disaster and the steps taken to rectify it. The result is an efficient, thrilling action picture that is easy to recommend.

    5.0 out of 5 stars well done February 18, 2011
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    I was initially thinking the premise of this movie was laughable. Well, after watching it, I have to take my hat off to the film, because all involved did a good job. The acting is good. The screenplay is believable ( except, ok when the swat team tries to help turn the train off ). I wish they'd just kept it in Texas where this happened and not be as anti-corporate as they almost were, it was still a good popcorn movie with good performances. I recommend.

    5.0 out of 5 stars SPILLS & THRILLS December 29, 2010
    Format:DVD
    How long has it been since you've seen a flick where you didn't have to think that much? Where you could walk out of the theater and say "Hey, that was fun". Well, this is it. Chris Pine says hello to Denzel Washington and that's about all the calmness you're going to get. 90 minutes on the fast track.
    That's why this film deserves 5 stars. A true action movie that will give you the best thrill for your buck.
    Mr. Washington and Mr. Pine work well off each other. Rosario Dawson and Lew Temple brighten up the storyline with some great character portrayals. Mark Bomback has written some great dialogue that's minimal, to the point, and fully understandable. Credit must be given to Tony Scott and Ben Seresin for not going haywire with shaky handheld camera techniques.
    This is fun entertainment.
    See it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Unstoppable Fun and Action November 26, 2010
    Format:DVD
    Okay, never mind that you've seen the plot before; this is a fun,action filled movie that at times had me gripping my husband's hands tight enough to hurt. The premise is almost cliche, although it is loosely based on an actual incident. Due to the incompetence of two railyard workers, a train carrying toxic materials takes off without an engineer and heads for a densely populated area of Pennsylvania. If not stopped, it could kill tens of thousands of people.

    The two main characters are played very ably by Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. Washington plays an experienced conductor who has been pink-slipped by the RR company. Pine plays a brash young, newly trained conductor who still has a lot to learn, and he doesn't actually appreciate Washington's character pointing it out every time he goofs up.

    Okay, forget that you know the two characters will develop a mutual respect and work together to heroically stop the runaway train, thereby saving Washington's job with the RR company. This is a fun movie to watch and the suspense is palpable. Nor does it pull all the expected cliche strings- it does miss a few here and there. It was a fun movie to watch and even though I knew how it was going to end, the suspense in seeing how, exactly, they stopped the train kept me on the edge of my seat.
