The movie ‘Unstoppable’ starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is about a massive, unmanned locomotive, laden with toxic chemicals, that roars out of control. An accident would annihilate human, animal and plant lives and cause an environmental disaster on a huge scale. This movie was inspired by true events, on the real-life CSX 8888 incident.
It’s got a good plot, it’s exciting and full of thrills and surprises. It’s a good movie to teach students about heroism, dangers of toxic chemicals, inherent environmental disasters, perseverance, quick thinking and teamwork.
