Starring: Denzel Washington, Chris Pine, Rosario Dawson
Ohio, USA in the year 2001. An unmanned, half-a-mile long train went on the lose due to an error on part of a hostler who jumped off the train to realign the tracks but the trains brakes malfunctioned and the locomotive picks up speed on full throttle. Unstoppable is based on this true-life incident, although exaggerated, when one such train in Pennsylvania, carrying toxic chemicals, escapes from the yard and hits the main line at the speed of 70mph. A veteran engineer Frank (Washington) and a rookie conductor Will (Pine) come to the rescue when Franks experience tells him that the only way to stop such a train is to grab it by the tail and apply the brakes. When all chances of derailment and slowing the train fail, Frank and Will link up with the train and attempt to slow it down. The movie has some very good high-intensive action which makes it into a very interesting watch for the action-lover. The overall plot was exaggerated than the actual events which were more sober and low-key. The trailer gives out the entire movie along with the climax, yet the movie is worth a watch simply for its phenomenal action sequences.
Thumbs up: Great action
Thumbs down: Predictable plot
