Unstoppable

A runaway train carrying highly flammable and toxic chemicals is heading straight towards highly populated areas and Denzel Washington is the only one who can save us all!  Rosario Dawson helps to save the day as well. This movie was amazing – I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

More of the same tomfoolery as the first 2 movies.  There were funny parts, gross parts, and some parts I couldn’t watch.

Ben Affleck is a bank robber who is trying to get out of the game but his family keeps reeling him back in. I found it to be a very slow movie with short bursts of activity (robberies). I wouldn’t spend the theatre admission on this.

After a number of years of quiet (boring) retirement, the CIA has determined that these retired agents know too much and are too dangerous to have around.  A failed assassination attempt on Bruce Willis’ character prompts […]
