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
