2.0 out of 5 stars It really is STOPPABLE JUST HIT "STOP"
Before I start about this movie, I know many of you would like to direct your blame at Wesley, maybe not for just this movie but a lot of turkeys he's been making recently (Zig Zag, 7 seconds, The Marksman, Liberty stands still). Anyway he deserves blame in this film for not having more involvement on the script, which gets a bit silly. The movie is by no far means the...

Wesley Snipes is an ex-special forces operations and is having a hard time adjusting to his civilian life. He is in love with the girlfriend of a man he had ordered to die. While waiting for her at the Chesapeake restaurant, he is mistaken for someone else who is supposed to be waiting there. He is injected with a powerful hallucinogenic drug which works off the power of suggestion. Snipes believes he is back in a Bosnia prison as the bad guys attempt to extract information from him, which he doesn't have. Meanwhile the CIA show up disguised as FBI. The movie takes place in Baltimore (at night) so we don't get to see much of the city.

No sex. No nudity. No super special effects. It does show the mind play and hallucinations going on in Snipes head fairly well.

2.0 out of 5 stars It really is STOPPABLE JUST HIT "STOP", 15 Nov 2006
This review is from: Unstoppable [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Before I start about this movie, I know many of you would like to direct your blame at Wesley, maybe not for just this movie but a lot of turkeys he's been making recently (Zig Zag, 7 seconds, The Marksman, Liberty stands still). Anyway he deserves blame in this film for not having more involvement on the script, which gets a bit silly. The movie is by no far means the worst movie I've seen; you just have to see another Snipes movie, "7 seconds" to do that! And at least unstoppable has strong performances from Snipes himself and the gorgeous Jacqueline Obradors. Its just the budget of this movie is clear to see, and the storyline is wafer thin with many loose ends not explained, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje plays an agent for the CIA named Junod, you may all remember him as Adebisi in the greatest TV show ever, OZ. Here he portrays a high ranking officer within the CIA with the worst American western style accent ever heard; there are even pauses during his dialogue for him to put the accent on. There are a few good fight scenes, like the scene in the Diner when Dean Cage (Snipes's character) beats down his attacker, and the chase to hunt him down is mildly enjoyable hence the generous maybe biased 5 out of ten I gave it. Stuart Wilson does a good job as the bad guy, but why he doesn't kill his bumbling henchmen especially Kim Coates character puts a big question mark on his characters ruthlessness. The story stumbles into the final scenes with so much predictability you feel like Deja vu. If you haven't enjoyed a decent performance from our dear friend Wesley since Jungle Fever or even Rising Sun, then don't expect it here, in fact who knows if we'll ever see another classic Wesley Snipes movie, now that he seems to make low budget straight to video fodder........watch only if it's on TV and nothing better is on

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 10 April 2005
This review is from: Unstoppable [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
An Excellent film. Snipes is brilliant, a fine example of how an actor doesn't have to become type-cast (after Blade). Worth a watch.
