Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Very big train hits stuff. Bish bash bosh. Job done. Great fun."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"This isn't groundbreaking fare, mind you. But Unstoppable muscles through its story of peril with crafted intensity and a few well-placed grins."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Unstoppable is a pure thrill ride from beginning to end. Well-staged action, strong performances and great direction make it one of the most exciting films of the year."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"Director Tony Scott delivers in this exciting thrill ride."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Despite Tony Scott managing to maintain his high-octane style, the relative simplicity of the plot gives Unstoppable a more intimate feel than his usual bombastic actioner"
‑ Laurence Boyce, Little White Lies
"Though it's a ridiculous ride, it offers the heightened pulse of a great race."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"Though inspired by a real incident, the movie is an opportunistic political allegory about an economy that's out of control and industries that are weakened by layoffs, under-staffing and corporate callousness."
‑ , Globe and Mail
"Like the train itself, Unstoppable moves a breakneck speed and delivers good, old fashioned fun."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Scott proves once again that action movies don't need to be a headache-inducing, bright, loud, irritating experience, but instead can be something more when given the right treatment."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"... As the train picks up speed, the movie does the same."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Of course it's implausible, but it's also consistently entertaining."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"There's a gut-level simplicity to "Unstoppable" that works despite all its clichés."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Unstoppable is the sort of movie in which characters recite dialogue like 'we're not talking about a train, we're talking about a missile the size of The Chrysler Building'... an incredibly fun time at the cinema."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"The title, then, is probably referring to the human spirit. That's corny, but it works."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Thunderous, metallic, ominous, screeching sound effects add to the sensory perception that you're watching a megaton monster barreling toward a dramatic showdown."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
