++++++++++ FILM ONLY REVIEW ++++++++++ In 2001 in Ohio, a train left its yard to begin a 66-mile journey. That’s hardly newsworthy or inspirational material for a film. The circumstances most definitely are, however. The cab held no driver (or “engineer” as our Transatlantic friends designate...

ProExcellent action and good acting all round

ConsJust not exactly mind-blowing

We managed to catch an early viewing of this film at the cinema in town, and so on a Wednesday with a two-for-one deal the boyfriend and I got to see this film for just 5.95. Not a bad deal really. I’d seen the trailer a few times and had suggested it might be a nice film to see (although...

“Not Really Unstoppable”

published 02/12/2010

Will Colson starts his new job as a train conductor with little respect from his older colleagues. Teamed with veteran driver Frank, he sets out for an ordinary day hauling freight. But a rogue train soon puts paid to any thoughts of normality, as the unmanned locomotive speeds towards highly...

“Unexciting”

published 20/08/2012

ProA well put together film

ConsThe whole is less than the sum of its parts

The combination of Tony Scott as director and Denzel Washington as lead actor is nothing new. They teamed up for four films prior to "Unstoppable", which have been generally very good films. However, for "Unstoppable", they have combined to bring us something new; this is possibly the first...

“Runaway train”

published 02/04/2012

ProEntertaining, decent acting and direction

ConsNothing special

Quite often, the success of a film is measured by whether it meets expectations or not. Unstoppable is billed as being a thriller, but gives the impression that it's going to be a middle of the road, average film. Therefore, once I got into the film and realised they were just getting right down...

Sometimes there is a guility pleasure in watching a real no brainer of a movie, well at least for me, a film that requires no thought on the viewers behalf and delivers 90 odd minutes of action, action, action. Wesley Snipes at least these days seems to only make those sorts of films and...

I could watch this all day. Any film with Denzel is good, but he was a good engineer. This film was action packed all the way through. I was not bored for a minute. Perfect length. Not your typical cheesy train film! The way the director captured the scene was far better than the film's...

ConsDrags too much at times.

Basically, an idiot train worker forgets to put the handbreak on the train so it pulls of and begins gaining speed before they can stop it. Gradually, it gets faster and faster and it gets to the stage where it's heading straight for a train full of children. After a lot of messing about they...
