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! *****

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.

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.

Great pulse pounding action, terrifically-filmed action sequences, and a great film for a family popcorn and movie night. The acting by the leads is good, too. Much better than the critics gave them credit for. That said, the screenplay lacks depth, and the GAPING plot holes and inconsistencies become very obvious on the second and subsequent viewings. SPOILER ALERT The control levers moving by themselves bothered me even on the first time through -- in the real incident, the engineer set the controls in the wrong position -- because the controls have detents to prevent that from happening. The (fictional) town of Stanton became the largest city in Pennsylvania after Philly (much larger than either Pittsburgh or Allentown), and train and locomotive braking systems are improperly represented: they need air to hold them off, not to apply them like a truck. This last detail, while it may not be as obvious to non-train buffs, still begs the question: if you're going to be down between the locos monkeying with coupler pins, why not just hook up the air lines (althought you would really need to OPEN the air cock and bleed off the air to stop the train), and finally, diesel electric locos like the ones in the movie generate a set amount of tractive effort in each throttle setting. If you add weight or drag, the loco slows down. Period. It's not cruise control. END SPOILERS. Still, in spite of problems with the plot, it's a really entertaining movie and well worth seeing. And BTW, if you're wondering about the dedication, the film is dedicated to the wife of the man who ran down the real runaway (Crazy Eights --CSX SD40-2 #8888), and Denzel Washington's agent, both of whom died while the film was in production.

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.
