I can just imagine the meeting that took place when they came up with the MacGuffin for Unstoppable.

Doody face 1: I got it! How about an action thriller about a runaway train?

Doody face 2: Meh.

Doody face 1: Okay fine, how about this. A runaway train that has flammable and toxic materials on it!

Doody face 2: Holy gallbladder made of fiberglass, that’s genius! Get Denzel on the phone right away!

Dumb-sauce!!

Sure the suspense was, well, suspenseful, but this movie was just so stupid, so generic, and so predictable, that it isn’t worth your time or money.

Verdict: Forget It
