UNSTOPPABLE (2010 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Unstoppable—some good news and some bad news. The good news—action scenes are superb and characters are well done. The bad news—a few flat spots that revolve around the deaths of an engineer and injury of a main character. Overall? Thrilling, exciting with a few flat spots. It’s a ‘don’t-want-to-get-popcorn-until-the-movie-is-over’ flick.

Storyline

A train leaves the train yard under its own power without the brakes engaged.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Tony Scott for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Chris Ciaffa, Jeff Kwatinetz, and Rick Yorn for making the film possible. Additional character/cast include: Frank (Denzel Washington), Will (Chris Pine), Connie (Rosario Dawson), Dewey (Ethan Suplee), Galvin (Kevin Dunn), Inspector Werner (Kevin Corrigan), Bunny (Kevin Chapman), Ned (Lew Temple), and Gilleece (T.J. Miller).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Unstoppable is another tribute to Director Tony Scott’s very good directing skills (Spy Games (1998), The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009), Man on Fire (2004)). It fills the definition of thriller/disaster movie.
