The "Stanton Curve" featured in the film is an actual rail line in Bellaire, Ohio. The line runs on a historic stone viaduct after crossing the Ohio River from West Virginia. However, the extremely dangerously-placed oil/chemical storage tanks beside the curved track do not exist and have been added in by CGI to increase the sense of danger. See more »
In the first attempt to stop 777, as 777 moves into the curve where the Lash-up is waiting to slow it down, the front shot shows the slower moving locomotives driven by Judd Stewart, with 777 fast approaching. As the shot pans to behind the locomotive of 777, the lash-up is not seen. See more »
This film is about the attempts to stop an unmanned train full of dangerous chemicals travelling at high speed, endangering the lives of thousands of people living along the tracks.
"Unstoppable" gets right to the point, action already starts ten minutes into the film. After that, the thrills get better and better. As a result, the film keeps you glued to the screen with increasing intensity.
Early on in the film, I wondered if there was enough to fill the screen time, but there was actually enough to make it action packed, without slow, pacing scenes to interrupt the action. "Unstoppable" is a good action film, relatively free from blood and violence which is rather rare for an action film these days.
