Like all the best action movies this one has a very simple high concept - high speed runaway train, carrying toxic chemicals, heads towards impossible turn in a densely populated town. Simple, but in the hands of the wrong director or actors, a potential train crash in more ways than one.

Director Tony Scott and regular collaborator Denzel Washington have enough experience to see this through. All it needed was Scott to remember he's making movies not music videos and drop the overly-flashy camera work and film treatments. Thankfully, he does. In 'Unstoppable' the camera is rarely still, but it's done so skillfully that the pace and tension are racked up almost from the beginning. Every good story needs tension and there are bucketloads here: between new-boy conductor Chris Pine and veteran driver Washington; between Pine and his estranged wife; between Washington and his daughters and between the rail company bigwigs trying to protect their shareprice and their staff trying to protect the public. Yes, it's cliched and cobbled from every thriller from Speed to Die Hard but it's done so well that you'll soon forget about that.

The blu-ray picture quality is fine; the gritty quality of the image matches the industrial surroundings of train yards, iron and steel. The sound is a diffent matter! In DTS HD MA, my subwoofer was almost breaking a sweat at times as hundreds of tons of steel thunder around the room. This really adds to the impression that the train is extremely heavy and truly unstoppable.

Get some popcorn, whack up the volume, disengage your brain and prepare to be on the edge of your seat!

An Excellent film that is always watchable. The "How it was made" section was fascinating.

Full on fast action from beginning to end with plenty of suspense all the way through, with the terror running here and there makes it even better. A runaway train and with problems attached, of cause we need them otherwise it wouldn't be a fabulous movie. Trying to stop the train isn't going to be easy, now the end well I'm not telling you as to spoil a great show with the actors and storyline being fantastic what else do you want. I rated this an A grade plus for edge of the seat entertainment with nail biting scenes included as well. A compelling show that you must stay put until the very end so take this ride with Denzel and see if you agree. Now move on pick up the popcorn and retire to the lounge relax with the pillow and put your feet up, Don't forget the movie, now for a fabulous night in with sheer action and suspense that holds you in place. Enjoy!

a good film but why it was called unstoppable is beyond me as they manage to stop it in the end
