A runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals puts an engineer and his conductor in a race against time. They're chasing the runaway train in a separate locomotive and need to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town. Written by
Aside from the references to Pittsburgh in the movie, most of the small towns (and even larger ones, including Stanton) are not real locations in Pennsylvania, with three exceptions. Most of the speeding train in the countryside scenes were shot in Port Matilda and Julian, Pennsylvania. During several shots of the train track route maps, you can clearly see Julian and Port Matilda (in their actual locations) nestled between all fictitious towns. Also shown is Keating Summit, and the real town was used for shooting. This was done presumably as a tip of the hat to the local communities. 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")
