Thanks to Show Film First for the chance to get to see this film 8 days before the general release! (and manage to get me to the cinema for the first time in months, yes that is why I have lack of updates on the blog!)
Unstoppable is about a train which is not just coasting around the tracks without a driver it is flying around at top speed on the tracks with no driver! Yes, I know what your thinking . . . Speed but not on a bus, on a train instead. Well kinda but kinda not at the same, confused yet?
This really does have to be one of the best American Football movies out there. Denzel is just fantastic as Coach Boone. He really did show all of the emotions that the coach would have went through so well throughout the movie. How hard he was on the players, being sick before the first game after finding out he would loose his job if he lost a game, how he used humour and how he battled against the racism. He really was the perfect choice for this role, having the authority in him and being able to just own the screen.
