Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Directing his 16th action-packed thrill ride, Tony Scott takes us on a high speed adventure involving a deadly, unmanned runaway train in Unstoppable - hitting theaters everywhere this weekend. Denzel Washington and Chris Pine star, with Rosario Dawson, Kevin Dunn, Ethan Suplee and T.J. Miller. So did Tony Scott actually deliver a kick ass action-packed movie about a train this time around? How are Pine and Washington as the opposing young/old leads? Is the story even believable? If you've seen it, leave a comment and let us know your thoughts on Tony Scott's Unstoppable!
To fuel the fire, as I've now seen Unstoppable (this section has been updated), to be honest it was actually damn good. I was impressed, Tony Scott actually pulled off a completely entertaining, well made action film involving humongous freight trains. I was actually amazed at some of the stunt sequences, it was cool to see them "play" around with trains that big. I was expecting it to be extremely cheesy, but they stuck to the story at hand and took us on an intense, fun ride. Washington/Pine were great playing off of each other and the rest of the cast was solid, too. I really didn't expect to like this as much as I did, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.
What did you think of Unstoppable? Tony Scott is back in the groove again or he's still lost it?
