Unstoppable

Factual error: In the yard when the air hoses are discovered to be not connected, the purpose of the connected hoses is to release the brakes, not apply them. With the hoses disconnected the brakes on all the cars are automatically applied.

Continuity mistake: After the double train fails to slow train 777 and gets switched to another section of track, in the control room, you see the train has already partly gone around a bend on the TV screen behind the bearded character, then cuts to the TV report footage which shows the train continuing on for a few seconds, though when the scene cuts back to the train, it is only just beginning go around the same bend that it had already partly travelled. (00:45:20)

Zentron

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the train hits the horse trailer, it knocks its left side light out. However each scene after that showing the train it has its right side light broken.

Frank: This ain't training. In training they just give you an F. Out here you get killed.

More quotes from Unstoppable

Question: Wouldn't it be easier if Stewart just attached his cab to 777 and any other qualified personnel with him just walked from Steward to 777 and took control of it, too easy perhaps? Or the welder could have someone with a BB gun in the back to shoot the famous "kill switch" next to fuel tank, instead of the cops trying to?

Answer: Yeah, but it wouldn't be nearly as dramatic.

Question: In the scene where 777 is curving on the viaduct, is that the crew, with the video equipment and stuff?

AWVR777

Chosen answer: Yes, for the news crew they used the filming crew.

Question: Is it likely that Dewey would have been subject to charges for the death of Judd Stewart? Although the failed plan technically wasn't his fault, the reason for it happening in the first place certainly was.

The_Iceman

Chosen answer: Highly unlikely. Dewey's negligence is not a direct cause of Judd's death, as Judd had every opportunity to decline the mission. Judd's family could bring a civil suit against the train company and Dewey personally for wrongful death but even that is a long shot since Judd assumed the risk.
