UN­STOP­PABLE

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

Den­zel Washington is a 28-year vet­eran en­gi­neer tu­tor­ing a first-day rookie (Chris Pine) on a Penn­syl­va­nia train when hell threat­ens to break loose, thanks to an un­manned run­away train. Martin Bom­back’s script fea­tures a slew of lik­able but flawed char­ac­ters all try­ing to do the right thing, and Tony Scott’s di­rec­tion is on the money when it comes to edit­ing, act­ing, and ac­tion. The per­form­ers give a con­stant sense of in­ten­sity to their char­ac­ters, but it wears thin af­ter a bit, and there’s a lot of corn sprin­kled into the pro­ceed­ings near the end. Still, it’s a good film that should ap­peal to all ages. Rated PG-13. 98 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. (Robert Nott)
