One more film and Tony Scott will complete his train trilogy. At this rate he would have become the railway minister of India had he been making movies here. With this one he completes his hat trick of working with Denzel Washington back to back.

Unstoppable like most of Tony Scotts movies is about a crisis situation. This time it is an unmanned train running through a highly populated area with no air brakes. The first half is spent in setting up the premise during which you get to know the personal crisis of the two male leads. The thing I found interesting in the first half is that Denzel Washington is the father of two daughters 18 and 19 who work as waitresses at Hooters and he is ok about it. Thats a cool dad. So, the first half is spent waiting for that thrill ride to begin. I almost screamed in my head at the two leads come on guys, stop discussing your life there is a train to be stopped. It is only in the 2nd half when things heat up and the heroes go after the speeding train that I realized that the 1st half worked because it made me care for these two guys. I wanted them to stop the train but I wanted them to stay alive. Since the film is about courage under fire and I saw it on 26/11, I couldnt help but compare it with the 26/11 tragedy. Chris Pine, after his impressive act as Kirk (Star Trek) last year stands up to Denzel Washington in a rock solid performance. Anybody who has seen most of Tony Scotts film knows what to expect. Like Jerry Bruckheimer, Tony Scott has created his own trademark style of film making and if you like that style you cant stop yourself from enjoying this.

Final few words: While most of the films derail in the 2nd half this one stays right on track. Unstoppable is the ideal weekend popcorn movie you can catch this weekend.
