Critics 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.

Common Sense Says
Runaway train thriller is more suspenseful than violent.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that compared to other Tony Scott/Denzel Washington thrillers (like Man on Fire), Unstoppable is relatively mild on violence. There's definitely lots of suspense -- and plenty of nailbiting scenes -- but there's no blood or weapons violence. A train explosion does kill one conductor, the runaway train nearly collides with a horse, and the main characters get injured and bruised. Language includes "s--t" and "ass," and prominent brands include Hooters and Ford. There's not too much sexual content -- a kiss, a couple of embraces, and a shot of the Hooters waitresses. Washington's wise, brave character is a good example of an older character who still has lots of expertise and experience to contribute; he and Chris Pine's character demonstrate strong teamwork skills.
