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

    Scott Bowles USA Today

    Scott paces the film like its mechanized star: deliberately and, ultimately, with enough speed to keep its passengers satisfied. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

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

    It takes a little while to pick up speed, but once Tony Scott's Unstoppable starts moving, it becomes a lean, efficient action flick. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    The best blue collar action movie in who knows how long, this tense, narrowly focused thriller about a runaway freight train has a lean and pure simplicity to it that is satisfying in and of itself. show more

    The thrill of Tony Scott's Unstoppable, in which a runaway freight train hurtles through rural - and toward not-so-rural - Pennsylvania, is that its setup asks us to believe only in human ineptitude. show more

    The photography and sound here are very effective in establishing that a train is an enormously heavy thing, and once in motion wants to continue. We knew that. But Scott all but crushes us with the weight of the juggernaut. We are spellbound. 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?

    An extremelty exciting film. I coudn\'t get off my heart is still pounding. Denzel Washington is an excellent actor in every film he is in.

    It is almost unbelievable how unbelievable this movie is. This, to me, is the second worse movie I have ever seen. If I could give zero stars I would.

    I was a little hestitant to buy a DVD where the plot seemed so predictable. I'm glad I did! A very intense thriller. Never thought I would see Denzel Washington, though he gave a remarkable performance, upstaged by the train and the action. Very intense!
