Consensus: As fast, loud, and relentless as the train at the center of the story, Unstoppable is perfect popcorn entertainment -- and director Tony Scott's best movie in years.

Very big train hits stuff. Bish bash bosh. Job done. Great fun.

This isn't groundbreaking fare, mind you. But Unstoppable muscles through its story of peril with crafted intensity and a few well-placed grins.

Though it's a ridiculous ride, it offers the heightened pulse of a great race.

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.

Like the train itself, Unstoppable moves a breakneck speed and delivers good, old fashioned fun.

Of course it's implausible, but it's also consistently entertaining.

There's a gut-level simplicity to "Unstoppable" that works despite all its clichés.

Trespass

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.
