17. “Unstoppable” (2010)
Tony Scott’s last huzzah, “Unstoppable” is a fine capstone to the late director’s career. It features a classic disaster plot and courageous heroes.
In this case, there is a runaway train (“a missile the size of the Chrysler building”) that can only be halted by engineers played by Denzel Washington and Chris Pine.
For a movie shot almost entirely inside some train cars, it’s surprisingly intense. The plot steadily intensifies, a great reminder of days of film past.
