Unstoppable [DVD]  [1 disc] [Region 1]
Region 1 USA/CA (
In this action thriller from director Tony Scott, rookie train operator Will (Chris Pine) and grizzled veteran engineer Frank (Denzel Washington) learn that a runaway locomotive carrying carloads of dangerous chemicals is headed for Will's small Pennsylvania hometown, where his wife and young daughter live. In order to save the day, they must figure out how to catch up to the rogue engine, and stop it before harm comes to the town. Standing in their way is Galvin (Kevin Dunn), the head of the company who is more interested in saving the stock price than lives. On the plus side, the duo have competent corporate employee Connie (Rosario Dawson) on the radio, talking them through their various attempts to corral and then stop the potentially lethal locomotive.

"[F]ull, fresh, smart, terse, funny, genuinely thrilling and ultimately original..."
Wall Street Journal
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Washington and co-star Chris Pine are great together, and up to the task for the unbelievably intense action, pulse-pounding excitement and pure adrenaline high this movie delivers."
"Washington and Pine have a strong, often funny chemistry, the dramatic stakes are raised incrementally, and the interplay between the two leads and the professionals on the other end." -- Grade: B-
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The movie is as relentless as the train, slowly gathering momentum before a relentless final hour of continuous suspense. In terms of sheer craftsmanship, this is a superb film."
"A runaway train drama that never slows down, it fashions familiarity into a virtue and shows why old-school professionalism never goes out of style."
Los Angeles Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "The selling points here are jolts. And this movie delivers so hard it shoots off sparks."
"It's all speed, sound, and fury -- and in that, Tony Scott is the right man for the jobs." -- Grade: B
3 stars out of 4 -- "Scott paces the film like its mechanized star: deliberately and, ultimately, with enough speed to keep its passengers satisfied."
3 stars out of 4 -- "The director Tony Scott achieves something close to the action movie in its ideal form with UNSTOPPABLE....Scott wisely keeps the premise pure, ratcheting up the tension and raising the emotional stakes without cluttering up the story's sleek lines."
4 stars out of 5 -- "[Scott] has pursued every microsecond of big-boned movieness from the proposition....The film feels in sure hands."
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a great success -- an expansive, loud, riveting ride that's mercifully light on conspicuous CGI."
