Unstoppable stars Denzel Washington and Chris Pine as Frank Barnes and Will Colson, two men who showed exceptional courage in an attempt to stop a runaway train. They soon discover the runaway train is running at full speed and carries hazardous materials and another train carrying school children is its path. These two guys have to risk their lives and their jobs in order to save the day.
It’s a really thrilling show though it’s weird that throughout the movie, the thing that kept popping into my mind is that I know who can stop the train – SUPERMAN! There were a couple of attempts made and of course, the initial ones fail and I can’t help but think that Superman can raise his arms to stop the train. It’s really scary too because you can tell the trains are going very fast! I think I cried tears of joy at the end. 3 and a half out of 5 stars.
And as a bonus: a SNL spoof featuring Scarlett Johannson. It’s quite funny, especially the banter between the two guys involving trains (Thomas the Train and the invention of trains) as well as ScarJo’s comparison of everything to the Chrysler Building.
