There are three occasions where it seems a line has been either cut or overdubbed. Both Gavin and Will both say "Goddamn", but the word is either cut totally, like in Will's case, or the word God has been cut, like in Gavin's case. However, there is the case of Ned. When Ned says "You guys are always screwing up.", The words "Screwing up.." seem to replace Ned saying "You guys are always 'fucking up'. These lines may have been cut/re-edited to help the movie have a PG-13 rating, instead of an R rating. See more »

In Pennsylvania, one engineer is maneuvering a train in the yard and accidentally leaves the train operating without the pneumatic brakes engaged. The operation department initially believes it is a coaster but soon the operators realize that the unmanned train is running on full power. Further, it is carrying dangerous chemicals and diesel in the cargo wagons. There are many unsuccessful attempts to stop the runaway train and the veteran engineer Frank Barnes (Denzel Washington) and the young conductor Will Colson (Chris Pine) decide to take the chance to reduce the speed of the train with the most unlikely operation.
The farewell of the brilliant director Tony Scott is a thriller with non- stop action inspired in a true event in Ohio. The screenplay is engaging and the dramatization is adequate to the story. The great cast with Denzel Washington, Chris Pine and Rosario Dawson completes this excellent entertainment. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Incontrolável" ("Uncontrollable")
