Unstoppable is as action-packed as its title suggests. The story, inspired by true events, centers on an unmanned freight train which has been accidentally unleashed on the main track. The problem is, the train is carrying 8 cars full of hazardous material that could result in a devastating catastrophe if not stopped.  Chris Pine and Denzel Washington develop excellent chemistry as the plot unfolds. It is thrilling to watch the attempts to stop this runaway train while also quite suspenseful if you don't know how the story goes. Overall, I thought the film had good character development, mainly the characters played by Pine and Washington. Plot is somewhat predictable and mostly only touches on one note (not a lot of variety to this movie). While not a great dramatic piece of film making, Unstoppable is very entertaining and I got a kick out of it! I give it a solid three stars (out of four).

UNSTOPPABLE is rated PG-13 for profanity, some violence, and some scary moments.
