The Film 4/5

After directing movies about planes, cars and a submarine, Tony Scott's last two efforts have involved trains. The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 used a train as a setting, but Scott goes a step further in Unstoppable, making a train one of the movies' stars. Trains are big. Scott has Washington walk in front of a few at the start of the movie to show us just how big they are.

An irresponsible worker makes two mistakes that set events in motion, deciding to move a train without connecting the air brakes and then leaving the cabin to pull a lever at the side of the track. The train is moving too fast for him to get back on and pulls away under full power.

Will Colson (Pine) has been a conductor for four months. He reports to work and faces resentment from the older workers. They assume he's inexperienced and think that younger, cheaper workers may be a threat to their own job security. He's assigned to work with Frank Barnes (Washington), who has similar feelings. Colson makes a couple of mistakes and Barnes thinks his fears are justified.

3.0 out of 5 stars "A Full-Throttle Thriller"?? May 2 2011
By K. Roy
Format:DVD
the boxart for this movie reads "A Full-Throttle Thriller". Whoever was watching this must be easily entertained.

Was it a good movie? Yes. Was it a great movie? No.

in short form the story consists of a train that was left running without a conductor and picks up speed where the constant threat of it crashing looms. Cue Denzel Washington and Chris Pine to save the day and of course you know they will (does Denzel ever fail?)

the movie takes a while to really get going and the first 20 minutes or so are actually pretty boring containing a bunch of generic character development ideas that are quite stale. In the beginning Chris Pine's character has a fight with his "wife" over a reason revealed later in the movie. Likewise, Denzel forgot to give his "daughter" her birthday wishes so shes quite upset with him. Que the love and caring as the wife and daughter learn to care for their men once again as soon as Denzel and Chris put their life on the line...really...

Its nothing we haven't seen before but at least its entertaining

4.0 out of 5 stars An odd like. March 6 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you asked me before I bought this DVD, do you like Denzel Washington? My answer would have been: no. If you asked, do you like Chris Pine? My answer would have been: no. Why did I buy this DVD? Well, this was the film I kept running into on commercial TV. I always caught it halfway through and had never seen the beginning. To break the curse, I splurged the $6 and got a copy. Glad I did. I like seeing the whole movie. If you ask me, do you like Denzel Washington? I still say no. I can't tell you why. But if you look in my library of DVD's, you'll find: Unstoppable, Deja Vu and Man on Fire. (All movies starring Denzel Washington and directed by Tony Scott.) I figure in a few years watching these 3 DVD's, I may eventually get to like Denzel. Unfortunately with Tony Scott's death, Chris Pine won't be making any more Tony Scott movies, so Chris' fate on the like-ability scale,... TBA.

4.0 out of 5 stars Formula in every way....but so well done. Nov. 15 2013
By One singular sensation... TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Even as the opening credits roll, you know the ending of the movie. But is really doesn't matter. "Unstoppable" is completely predictable from the first second to the last. But it is so well made that though you are not glued to the edge of your seat in suspence, you are focused totally on what is going on, and you get to care about the two leads even though you know that they are really in no danger. The movie is like a great thrill ride at an amusement park; it grabs you, manipulates you so that you scream in delight, and then lets you off, safe, sound, and ready for the next ride. Most films of this genre turn you off them for at least a month or three. "Unstoppable" never does that.
The special effects are well under control, the on-site filming gives it credibility, the actors are topnotch, and the villain is so hopelessly stupid that you can't even want to boo him - just have him locked away working in the back room of a fast-food restaurant. And since it is based on a "true event" I guess I have to accept that one woman is smarter than about twelve men put together
(with apologies to Lina Lamont.)
"Unstoppable" is a fun ride in every way.

4.0 out of 5 stars A real nail biter May 27 2013
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Unstoppable(released Nov/10)stars,among others,Denzel Washington as Frank Barnes,Chris Pine as Will Colson,and Rosario Dawson as Connie Hooper.This film is a film that grabs you almost right from the beginning and never lets go to the last nail biting moment.
The story introduces us to two people. First enters Pine whose wife has a restraining order out on him as he is walking into his first day on the job at the train yard.Next is Denzel who has 28 years under his belt,but is getting short pensioned after 28 years.He and his colleagues are less than cordial to Pine who blame he and his ilk for their fall in fortunes.Denzel is partnered with Pine who is conducting the train.They take an engine out to retrieve a train load of zinc and return it to the yard.
Meanwhile in the yard circumstances are set into motion which will change many lives.A lazy train worker gets sloppy,jumps off a slow moving train to change a switch,but the controls he left in place slip and change,setting the locomotive off on its own.It picks up speed and is bound eventually for the highly populated city of Scranton,Pa.Back down the same line the train is headed toward is Denzel and Pine.Frantic efforts and ideas to stop the train from the yard master and her underlings meet with no success.A later effort to derail the train purposely also is going to fail,but Denzel and Pine decide to race in reverse after the train in an attempt to hook up to it and slow it down.This they manage to do but it isn't enough.Pine gets injured in the attempt and Denzel decides to go topside of the runaway train cars and manually hit each ones brakes.This does the trick and the train manages to make it through a bad curve in Scranton.
Their engine's brakes have failed and the runaway is picking up speed again.
