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.

Unstoppable may be a predictable, unsubtle and clichéd variation of Speed, but that doesn't stop it being the most exhilarating thriller of the year. Strap yourselves in for one hell of a ride.

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

Globe and Mail

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.

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.
