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.

Two men risk it all to save a large city from disaster. Unstoppable plays out like an action thriller that keeps us engaged the entire time. With the train as the center of the story, in a way we get transported back to the days of great entertainment, where the storyline is simple, characters pure, and the dialogue isn't overdone. Here is an action film that stays on track and keeps you glued to the edge of your seat until the high-intensity climax is over. As we get to follow all the twists and turns of the main character, runaway train #777. It's one of those mindless thrillers that was made so well you probably will miss a lot of the detail as the movie literally sweeps you away, which is what a great action movie will do.

Unstoppable is based on a true story that comes out of Ohio where a low-level employee who fails to set the air brakes on a train while changing tracks and the issues that ensue as a result. The director Tony Scott, no newcomer to the action genre, sets the stage for the high-octane second half by letting us get to know the 2 main characters: Rookie conductor Will Colson (Chris Pine) and veteran engineer Frank Barnes (Denzel Washington). The two both have their share of family issues, which adds to the difficulty of being able to work together initially. Another dynamic we discover is that the company is forcing employees to be laid off, as evidenced by the fact that Barnes is being replaced by younger engineers such as Colson, but there is no replacement for experience. The 2 characters tension that initially exists turn into mutual cooperation to work together for a solution, and then at the end, respect.

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.
