When compared to Tony Scott's patented two men actioners, Unstoppable stands tall as a highlight in sound, fury, and token action movie silliness.

Unstoppable certainly is nail-biting -- if only for the furious editing, swooping cameras, crash zooms and thunderous soundtrack. It's a shame that it's impossible to escape the sense of autopilot that pervades.

Just what you'd expect and maybe a little more, this no-filler action flick delivers a loud, CGI-free thrill ride with Denzel Washington as an added bonus.

Grabs our attention and doesn't let us go for 98 nail-biting minutes of non-stop action and tension

Tony Scott is great at directing tense, edge-of-your-seat moments, and he doesn't fail his audience in 'Unstoppable,' the latest Denzel Washington movie, which is about a runaway train and the brave souls who try to stop it.

I embraced the thrills absolutely 100 per cent. I think this is a roller coaster ride of a film. This is real Scott territory.

It's a simple enough plot, inspired, we're told, by real events, and it's aimed at audiences looking for suspense and genuine thrills this summer.

Stripped of all pretence, this true story of valiant derring-do is a raucously entertaining action movie.

An adrenaline-pumper with more heavy metal than a night at Ozzfest.

A journeyman thriller from a journeyman director, Unstoppable is just good enough to leave you wanting more, not as a sequel, but an actual extra thirty-minutes of film.

Tony Scott has been applying hyper-coloured flash to movies for three decades, but Unstoppable, his two-men-against-a-runaway-train logistical rollercoaster ride, is the first in some while where style and concept get on a treat.

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

It's predictable but plausible and exciting...
