Through several crossings we heard a train's air horns. One train was not manned and we saw close-ups of the actors in the other - no-one was on the horns. This is not necessarily incorrect - in some areas designated "quiet zones" by the DOT, trains are not required to blow their horns in the same manner as ordinary crossings unless the engineer thinks there may be a need; some of these zones have "wayside horns" mounted at the crossing that automatically trigger as the train approaches.

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")
