Movie Review: Unstoppable (2010)

This Tony Scott film was inspired by true events. Frank (Denzel Washington) and Will (Chris Pine of ‘Star Trek’) go to work one day. Two idiot workers cause a half a mile train carrying phenol to become an unmanned runway. Frank and Will have to save the train from derailing and deal with their boring personal issues. Will’s wife (it’s Kendal’s wife from ‘Last Resort’) wants him gone until he helps save the day and all his sins are forgiven by the power of being on TV.

An idiot bureaucrat is an idiot, yard master Connie yells down phones, various attempts to stop the train fail and a horsebox is in peril but luckily the horses are saved. This has way too much build up and inexplicable scenes set in a Hooters bar. This was loud and empty.

Best Lines:
“Now what the hell do we do?”

“How do you all plan to stop it?”
