This film was inspired by a real story. It talks about unmanned train that is carrying harzardous materials that went unstoppable. Until a point that veteran locomotive engineer, Denzel Washington and rookie conductor, Chris Pine works to stop the train. Similar incident with Keanu Reeves’ movie Speed.

This movie will glue you to your seat and keep you from breathing when the people trying to stop the train and the stunts they are doing. Especially they release a man from a helicopter to land on the train and Chris Pine kicking the lock pin down. Plus, when the train taking a critical corner turning, I did not blink my eyes at all. It was this intense. I grabbed boy boy’s hand very tightly during these scenes.

Denzel Washington did a great job portraying the veteran engineer. Well, we can’t question Denzel’s acting capability, cant we? I have no doubts on this acting capability. His character was very farnie, cracked some jokes. He has gotten fatter though. I think he is jumping into the same banwagon as Samuel L Jackson gang.

Rosario Dawson deserves a thumb up too! She was really really good.

As for Chris Pine, so-so, nothing to shout about. I think he shines more in Star Trek.

Tiny Verdict: 8/10
