"Unstoppable" is about a runaway train on a collision course to wipe out a mid-sized Pennsylvania town and that streamlined premise might be the best thing to happen to director Tony Scott in years. The schizophrenic director, given to rapid edits, multiple filters, and cameras stuck in a wide array of angles has never done well with scripts with any degree of complexity or multiple narrative threads (please see the disaster that is "Domino") so it's no surprise that the narrowly focused "Unstoppable" is one of the Scott's most enjoyable pictures in a long time.
