  • a bang-up ride that means to wring you out. Mission accomplished. show more

  • Who knew that Unstoppable would be sensational? Talk about well-kept- and welcome-surprises. Tony Scott's latest thriller turns out to be pure cinema in the classic sense of the term. It's a motion picture about motion, an action symphony that gives new meaning to the notion of a one-track mind. show more

  • Scott shoots and edits Unstoppable with roller-coaster momentum and an eye (and ear) on that roaring tonnage of steel. show more

    Good movie IF YOU FORGET that Train brakes are applied when the air pressure drops or is not present... The brakes on all the freight cars would have been locked in the one position while the air line was not connected. How could an engine pull that in the first place?
