Goofs

After Wesley escapes from the interrogation room he's running down a hallway and just before he kicks open the door you can see a man (behind a glass door) down the hall in the distance. The two bad guys supposedly come down the same hall but you don't see the glass door, only a bulletin board, it's a different hallway. One of the bad guys shoots through the door and hits a power panel and the lights go out. Scene cuts and then you see the man behind the glass door again. See more »

Look In Snipes' Eyes...?
12 May 2010 | by tarbosh22000See all my reviews

"Unstoppable" is another assembly-line action movie from Snipes. This time around Wesley plays Dean Cage who is (of course) a CIA agent. A long time ago, he was kidnapped and tortured in a prison camp. He's mistakenly the target of Sullivan (Stuart Wilson), an evil drug maker. Cage is then injected with a drug that makes him hallucinate. If you look into Snipes' eyes, you can see he doesn't care about the movie.

He still puts in a professional performance though. It looks like he's forced to do his martial arts. The explosion on the highway is obviously green screened. Overall, it's not a bad movie, it's just lazy.
