We have a runaway train that is described as "a missile the size of the Chrysler Building" that is carrying tons of toxic chemicals that would prove catastrophic if the train goes over a curve adjacent to a bridge at too high of a speed, and it must be stopped. After a front-end intercept by a pair of locomotives leaves a veteran engineer dead, and a de-railing device proves to be a miserable failure, it is up to two men, a rookie and an experienced professional, to bring this speeding metal giant to a halt. After much of a struggle, the pair finally succeed in their mission, and the monstrous train is brought to its knees.
In a general sense, despite what some critics might like to say to bash the "predictability" and "unoriginality" of the plot and outcome of this movie, I think that anyone who likes dramatic adventure films can really enjoy it for what it is. I definitely give it a solid recommendation for action/adventure movie lovers to add it to their collection.
Unstoppable is pretty badly written and rife with every action-movie cliché in the book (suits and/or fat guys making decisions that put people at risk? Check. Buddy team of heroes... one old, one young, formerly combative but now in sync, each with personal/woman issues? Check. Spunky chick wisecracking and helping to save the day... from a safe distance? Check. Everything bad that could possibly happen all happening at once, plus a town that stores all it's fuel near the most dangerous train-track curve? Yep.).
But it is what it is and it doesn't pretend to be lofty or deep. So if you just want an exciting action flick - this will work. It's slow to start but it does build to a few tense moments, and Chris Pine, Denzel Washington, and Rosario Dawson are all easy on the eyes. We enjoyed it, without ever wanting to watch it again.
BOTTOM LINE: Worth a rental (NOT a purchase) if you're looking for an action-adventure.
