For the first 20 minutes, "Unstoppable" looks like a commercial advertisement for mobile phones. Everyone is constantly on it. The whole trail revolves around telecommunication. It sure wins the irritating title for the most obvious and longest product placement in film history.
The movie is quite straight forward: An unman train continues to accelerate and threatens to hit a populated town. Despite that, director Scott Ridley manages to craft a movie that keeps the adrenaline rising. Strangely, we are not concern if the characters get hurts or not. We just want the train to stop.
