I like the movie unstoppable because it has trains in the movie and I like trains

"Runaway train never coming back. Wrong way on a one way track."-Soul Asylum, "Runaway Train"
Maybe the greatest runaway train movie since "Runaway Train" with Jon Voight. Denzel and Captain Kirk have to stop a runaway train, and the clock is ticking! This movie is pretty much exactly what you think it is. Lots hot train on train action. Rosario Dawson co-stars. Originally they were going to call this "Training Day." This was Tony Scott's last film before his death in 2012.

If your looking for a solid action film, can't go wrong with this one. Denzel & Chris Pine do good job as 2 guys whose day gets way crazy. The 3rd star of the movie is "The Beast", freight train. A soulless Juggernaut of an antagonist. Hang on for a wild ride!!!

A film that unravels as well as the train picks up speed! Good interest story based upon a real story, that includes story development from the mind of writer, Mark Bomback (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: 2014; and War for the Planet of the Apes: 2017) and director, Tony Scott (Top Gun: 1986; Crimson Tide: 1995; Enemy of the State: 1999'; The Taking of Phelam 123: 2009; younger brother of Ridley Scott).
Actor Chris Pine and Denzel Washington perform well together.

This movie certainly gave me an appreciation of the trains that pass by my house numerous times daily! The people who are in charge of handling these massive means of transportation are doing an impressive job and hold the lives of many in their hands.

An action packed movie that kept me interested.

I have been and still am a big train fan that when I found out that the film was about a train as the main section of the story I raced to the library and checked it out and on the same day that I had to return the DVD I found a copy at a local store and snagged the last copy and still have it on my shelf and watch it every few weeks. there are not massive amounts of swearing but some still does get into the film.

I rated it 5 full stars... and give it 10/10

Rated 10/10. I found this to be more exciting than I thought I would.

It's a simple plot, but how it unfolds is quite engaging and draws you in.

The pace of the show is excellent and believable.

The acting and character development is top notch.

And, I learned a lot about railroads! Recommended.

A train is on its way somewhere until something goes wrong – the train won’t stop. If the train crashes, there will be terrible consequences as the train is carrying chemicals that are toxic. The conductor of the train is new, and his name is Will Colson. With Will is an engineer named Frank Barnes. The train goes out of control and the two must somehow stop it before it crashes into someplace as it is carrying chemicals. Even though people try to stop the train, it just won’t stop. Will Frank and Will Colson be able to stop it? This fast-paced (no pun intended) action-thriller will keep you interested throughout, just waiting for the train to stop.

This is a 2010 American action-packed disaster film directed and produced by Tony Scott in his final film as director before his death in 2012, loosely base on the real life CSX 8888 incident.
It shows the story of a runaway freight train, and the two men (Washington and Pine) who attempt to stop it.
It is a breath-taking, edge-on-your-seat and heart-stopping flick with a bloody lot of thrills and unbearable tension.
You would like to see it twice---if not thrice.
It is amazing to know how the film crew and stuntmen shot the film.

Totally a guilty pleasure movie of mine. Based (loosely) on a true story, plus Denzel Washington and a runaway train? So good. Even my dad loved it.
