Movie Info

In this action thriller from director Tony Scott, rookie train operator Will (Chris Pine) and grizzled veteran engineer Frank (Denzel Washington) learn that a runaway locomotive carrying carloads of dangerous chemicals is headed for Will's small Pennsylvania hometown, where his wife and child live. In order to save the day, they must figure out how to catch up to the rogue engine, and stop it before harm comes to the town. Standing in their way is Galvin (Kevin Dunn), the head of the company who is more interested in saving the stock price than lives. On the plus side, the duo have competent corporate employee Connie (Rosario Dawson) on the radio, talking them through their various attempts to corral and then stop the potentially lethal locomotive. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Unstoppable

  • Oct 31, 2015
    Unstoppable is the kind of film that never sounds like it's going to be very exciting but after watching it you wonder why it took so long to watch it, It's gripping and action packed from start to finish, The plot is simple so it makes it easier to just enjoy the ride, Chris Pine and Denzel Washington worked very well with each other and I wouldn't mind seeing them on screen together again soon, Probably Tony Scotts best movie before his passing and long may it be remembered for that.

    Tony Scott brings a true event to the big screen in the most tense and dramatic way possible. Unstoppable presents the typical-Scott-crazed direction along with a nerve-racking plot that gets you from start to finish, and not to mention Denzel and Chris' stellar duo. 4.5/5

    Two train operators must stop a runaway train. The opening credits claim that this film is based on a true story, but there are moments that are so implausible that I thought Tony Scott was pulling a Coen Brothers' Fargo on me. Real or not, the film is exciting and fun and perfect for all of Scott's gimmicks -- his ever-moving camera, quick cuts, big (unrealistic) explosions, hyper-masculine dialogue. It's all predictable but enjoyable, much like 1994's Speed. Overall, this film is unsubstantial fun.

    An exciting, suspenseful film. And it has Chris Pine. What more could you ask for?
