An unmanned train is barreling across Pennsylvania carrying tons of toxic cargo.  A disaster is inevitable if the train can’t be stopped. It’s up to Colson and Barnes, played by Chris Pine and Denzel Washington, to stop it and save the day. It’s a decent action film that is predictable and fun at the same time. With Taking Pelham 123 and this film, I’m thinking Tony Scott, the Director, and Denzel have a thing for trains.  Anyways, this movie is not Denzel’s best but it’s still entertaining.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

The Book of Eli

Denzel Washington is a stoic machete wielding bad ass that is traveling across a post apocalyptic United States carrying the last Bible. Carnagie, played by Gary Oldman, hunts down Eli for the book hoping it would give him religious and political power. Book of Eli provides a lot of action and its doesn’t go overboard with any of it’s religious tone. Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman in any movie is worth watching and this movie is worth watching.
