Proper popcorn movie,
This review is from: Unstoppable [DVD] (DVD)
Huge frieght train is accidentaly released unmanned when brakes are turned off during a routine move and so begins the movie...
A great example of how to make a very simple story engaging for a full movie duration, the action ramps up nicely with the speed of the train and the increasingly frantic efforts to stop it before it careers off track to catastrophic effect.
Introduction of principle characters family members adds a little padding but very hard to recall a Mr Washington movie that failed to satisfy. His presence even made the ridiculous Pelham 123 watchable. He excels again in unstoppable.
Good action movie, highly dramatised but recommended.
