Unstoppable may be a predictable, unsubtle and clichéd variation of Speed, but that doesn't stop it being the most exhilarating thriller of the year. Strap yourselves in for one hell of a ride.

Like the train itself, Unstoppable moves a breakneck speed and delivers good, old fashioned fun.

Unstoppable is the sort of movie in which characters recite dialogue like 'we're not talking about a train, we're talking about a missile the size of The Chrysler Building'... an incredibly fun time at the cinema.

Scott proves once again that action movies don't need to be a headache-inducing, bright, loud, irritating experience, but instead can be something more when given the right treatment.

The title, then, is probably referring to the human spirit. That's corny, but it works.

Despite Tony Scott managing to maintain his high-octane style, the relative simplicity of the plot gives Unstoppable a more intimate feel than his usual bombastic actioner

... As the train picks up speed, the movie does the same.

Thunderous, metallic, ominous, screeching sound effects add to the sensory perception that you're watching a megaton monster barreling toward a dramatic showdown.

Pretty heavy on cliches, but the simple fact that the film's one giant popcorn-infused action sequence should please most action fans.

Scott subdues his more stylized tendencies to deliver the kind of meat-and-potatoes action thriller that might very well be watched and enjoyed by the heroic blue collar characters in this movie.

(Director Tony) Scott is much better at building tension here than he was in 2009's so-average-it-hurt remake of The Taking of Pelham 123.

As they say about train wrecks, it's impossible to look away.
