Unstoppable

1 MILLION TONS OF STEEL. 100,000 LIVES AT STAKE. 100 MINUTES TO IMPACT. 

When an unmanned freight train speeds off at full power, an engineer and a conductor (Denzel Washington, Chris Pine) on a different locomotive try to stop it. Another Tony Scott action thriller starring Washington, their best since Crimson Tide (1995). This one was based on a real 2001 incident and has no villains and very little bloodshed, refreshingly enough. What it does have is a thrilling scenario reminiscent of Speed (1994) that maintains some amount of credibility throughout. Intense, fast-paced (with well-crafted action scenes), the movie also has likable performances by the two leads as working-class heroes.

2010-U.S.-Britain. 98 min. Color. Widescreen. Produced by Mimi Rogers, Tony Scott, Eric McLeod, Julie Yorn, Alex Young. Directed by Tony Scott. Cast: Denzel Washington (Frank Barnes), Chris Pine (Will Colson), Rosario Dawson (Connie Hooper), Kevin Dunn, Ethan Suplee, Kevin Corrigan.

Trivia: Scott’s last film.

Last word:¬†‚ÄúThis was the most challenging and brilliant adventure I‚Äôve ever encountered because I had to tell a character story inside something going very, very fast. It‚Äôs always about the performances ‚Äď how I look at these two characters in a way I haven‚Äôt done before and be honest to who they are.‚ÄĚ (Scott, EmanuelLevy.com)
