Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that compared to other Tony Scott/Denzel Washington thrillers (like Man on Fire), Unstoppable is relatively mild on violence. There's definitely lots of suspense -- and plenty of nailbiting scenes -- but there's no blood or weapons violence. A train explosion does kill one conductor, the runaway train nearly collides with a horse, and the main characters get injured and bruised. Language includes "s--t" and "ass," and prominent brands include Hooters and Ford. There's not too much sexual content -- a kiss, a couple of embraces, and a shot of the Hooters waitresses. Washington's wise, brave character is a good example of an older character who still has lots of expertise and experience to contribute; he and Chris Pine's character demonstrate strong teamwork skills.

Sexual Content

Frank's daughters, who work at Hooters, are shown sporting very short shorts and tank tops. Connie gives Frank a congratulatory kiss. Will and his wife kiss and embrace.

Violence

A character dies in a train explosion, and throughout the film there's a pervasive dread that a group of kids on a field trip -- or the protagonists, or even an entire town -- will get killed/destroyed because of the runaway train. There are several stressful, intense scenes.

Language

Language includes words like "s--t," "bitch," "ass," "a--hole," "p---y," "hell," "damn," "oh my God," "goddamn," and one use of "f--k," plus insults like "idiot," "stupid," and the like.

Social Behavior

Will and Frank's efforts demonstrate teamwork and collaboration -- they must trust each other, even though at first they aren't very friendly. The movie also makes it clear that just because workers get old, that doesn't mean they're obsolete. Viewers will also see that what's best for the common good can be at odds with what's best for a particular company's business interests -- and the movie makes it clear that the right thing to do isn't always the easiest or most profitable.

Consumerism

Prominent appearances by Ford trucks. Supporting characters work at Hooters.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A character is shown smoking cigarettes; waitresses serve drinks, but no one really really drinks in the movie.
