Denzel Washington has worked several times with action-specialist director Tony Scott ("Crimson Tide," "Man on Fire"), and they reteam on this effective, fact-inspired thriller that puts fresh spins on a time-tested premise of a train that's out of control.
Washington plays an experienced engineer who's training a newcomer (Chris Pine, "Star Trek") when they become the only hope of stopping a toxic-chemical-laden locomotive hurtling toward a town and its populace. Rosario Dawson also stars. *** (PG-13: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
