Unstoppable (PG-13)


This is one hot nail-biter. Denzel Washington is Frank, a veteran Pennsylvania railroad engineer who is training his young replacement, Will (Star Trek’s Chris Pine), when a 47-car train loaded with acid is traveling head-on in their direction at more than 70 mph. Neatly placed grace notes of humor temper the film’s palpable tension. Unstoppable is a beautifully executed action movie that’s well worth seeing on a big screen.
