|Unstoppable was inspired by a true story, with the real events of 2001 concerning a train cruising down the tracks with no one at the wheel embellished upon in order to make the story both more suspenseful and cinematic. Washington stars as veteran engineer Frank Barnes, a no-nonsense train man serving out the last few days of his employment after being pink-slipped. On this particular day he's teamed up with trainee Will Colson (Chris Pine), a brash young man who Frank believes only got the job because he's related to someone higher up in the company. The two do not hit it off, and it appears they're going to be in for a long day. And after Will makes a mistake in the number of cars he's hooked up to the engine, Frank's just about ready to kick the new kid off his train.
|However, a situation arises that will demand the two work together under the most dire of circumstances. An unmanned train is barreling down the tracks loaded with toxic material and heading for a town full of innocent people. If the train reaches a hairpin turn on a raised bridge at a high rate of speed, it'll be sent flying off the tracks like a missile. That could cause a substantial amount of deaths. Bigwigs in the company have a couple of plans for stopping the train, but Frank and his contact back at the yard, yardmaster Connie Hopper (Rosario Dawson), don't believe the company executive in charge (Kevin Dunn) knows his head from a hole in the ground.
||然而，一个突发状况要求两人在危急关头通力合作。一列无人驾驶的列车正沿着铁轨向前疾驰，车上载着有毒的化学物质；而就在列车行驶的前方，有一个人口众多的小镇。如果火车未能在到达升降桥上的急转弯处之前刹住，过快的速度会让整列火车像导弹一样飞出铁轨，造成大量人员伤亡。公司高层们制定了几个计划试图停下火车，但是弗兰克和他在调车场的熟人——调车场场长康妮•霍珀（罗莎里奥•道森 饰），都认为公司的主管（凯文•杜恩 饰）没有能够解决问题的头脑。
|So Frank and Will decide to put aside their differences for the good of all those innocent citizens in the path of the runaway locomotive and, with the support of Connie and a federal safety inspector (Kevin Corrigan) who just happens to be with Connie on this fateful day, go against the corporate honcho orders and strike out on their own. Will and Frank put their lives on the line in a desperate attempt to stop the 'unstoppable' train.
