Unstoppable (2011)

In this high-speed action-thriller from Tony Scott (The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, Top Gun), an unmanned, mile-long runaway train - with an unfortunate cargo of toxic chemicals, combustible liquids and poisonous gasses - is out of control and on a collision course with a nearby city. Enter Denzel Washington as a veteran engineer and Star Trek's Chris Pine as a conductor, in a race against time to stop the disaster. From the writer of Live Free or Die Hard.

Given the linear, one-track nature of the plot, Scott and Bomback prove surprisingly effective at delivering a well-rounded experience, going out of their way to fill in the personalities of their two leads.

A hero with a buzz cut, a runaway vehicle and the potential for disaster.

Unstoppable does what it announces at the platform: hurtles you on a journey to blissfully brainless thrill-ville. Bombastic, cheesy, awesome, it’s Tony Scott back on his game.

It's the kind of outrageous, excessive flourish that can make Mr. Scott's work so enjoyable in the moment. He doesn't do much, but with a handful of appealing actors in tow, he sure keeps that machine going.

As this strangely dull story headed for the buffers, the forces dragging my eyelids south were unstoppable.

The photography and sound here are very effective in establishing that a train is an enormously heavy thing, and once in motion wants to continue. We knew that. But Scott all but crushes us with the weight of the juggernaut. We are spellbound.

A runaway train drama that never slows down, it fashions familiarity into a virtue and shows why old-school professionalism never goes out of style.

The best blue collar action movie in who knows how long, this tense, narrowly focused thriller about a runaway freight train has a lean and pure simplicity to it that is satisfying in and of itself.

Some days a runaway train movie just hits the spot.
