Did no other movie want to compete with the runaway train that is Unstoppable this week? The DVD offerings are slim, to say the least.
Tony Scott is a guy who's made a lot of embarrassingly bad movies over the past decade (Domino, Deja Vu, Spy Game), and whenever a director does that you sometimes forget who they used to be. How much fun The Last Boy Scout is, or how True Romance blew your mind the first few times you saw it, or that he's even the same guy who directed Top Gun at all. For all its faults and preposterousness, Unstoppable is a movie that's so much fun, and so expertly crafted as the perfect mindless actioner, that for the first time since Enemy of the State I'm reminded of what Tony Scott is capable of.
