Unstoppable

You know that movie Unstoppable?



It's about the train that won't stop.

Yeah, it sounded boring to me too.

I heard it was about colliding trains, and I thought, "Great, a two-hour movie about a 5th grade word problem."

At 7:30 a.m., an express train traveling at 60 miles per hour leaves Santa Fe bound for Phoenix, 520 miles away. At the same time, a local train traveling 30 miles an hour carrying 40 passengers leaves Phoenix bound for Santa Fe ...

Well, my wife and I watched it the other night, and I have to admit ...

... 5th grade word problems are more intense than I thought.

Is it worth watching?

I'd say it is. Nothing happens for the first 45 minutes other than a train speeding up, but I found myself all tensed up anyway.

It surprised me, but maybe it's because I wasn't expecting to like it.
