Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Who knew that Unstoppable would be sensational? Talk about well-kept- and welcome-surprises. Tony Scott's latest thriller turns out to be pure cinema in the classic sense of the term. It's a motion picture about motion, an action symphony that gives new meaning to the notion of a one-track mind.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Todd McCarthy
The best blue collar action movie in who knows how long, this tense, narrowly focused thriller about a runaway freight train has a lean and pure simplicity to it that is satisfying in and of itself.

The thrill of Tony Scott's Unstoppable, in which a runaway freight train hurtles through rural - and toward not-so-rural - Pennsylvania, is that its setup asks us to believe only in human ineptitude.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Unstoppable is edited for maximum impact without showboating. The central situation sustains the drama and the way it's filmed, and when that situation is over, so's the movie. More films should be this enjoyably functional.

USA Today

By Scott Bowles
Scott paces the film like its mechanized star: deliberately and, ultimately, with enough speed to keep its passengers satisfied.

The exchange of substance for speed may not appeal to all, but if you're on board you'll find it hard to disembark.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Scott shoots and edits Unstoppable with roller-coaster momentum and an eye (and ear) on that roaring tonnage of steel.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
It takes a little while to pick up speed, but once Tony Scott's Unstoppable starts moving, it becomes a lean, efficient action flick.
