Certain Things Are "Unstoppable"
Tony Scott has never quite reached the dazzling heights of his brother, Academy Award-winner Ridley, but Tony has had his fair share of hits from Top Gun to Enemy of the State to pretty much any Denzel Washington action/thriller made in the last ten years. Honestly, I've always been indifferent to the collaborations between Denzel and Scott, but there is no denying that the two have talent, and Tony Scott manages to reaffirm time-and-time again why he is one of the kings of the action movie genre. The duos latest collaboration, Unstoppable, is scheduled for a November release and puts Denzel Washington up next Captain Kirk, Chris Pine, who stole the show in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. I liked Pines work so much in Trek, I'm excited to see him doing some more action, but the story of an escaped train harboring explosive chemicals also carries various shades of the best action movies of all-time from Speed to Die Hard. This could be a fun and entertaining thriller, and with Pine sharing double-billing with Denzel, it could make this collaboration between Washington and Scott stand out more than their previous collaborations.
