Unstoppable (2010)

Utter rubbish.  Think Snakes on a Plane, but instead molten phenol on a train!

From a scientist point of view, WTF?  Molten phenol?  Pure phenol is solid at room temperature (but only just), normally you buy liquified phenol, definitely not molten.  No doubt it's really nasty stuff,  but it is not highly combustible; indeed I've never felt scared that it might catch fire when I've used it.  Oh, and why is that radioactivity sign on the front of the train upside down?  That's meaningless.  Quite a good symbol for the film then.


  1. But phenol melts at a highly dangerous 40.5 degrees celsius! OK that's probably uncomfortable to be on a train in that heat, but I'm sure if they just switched the AC back on there would be no problem :-S

    1. Air conditioning of course, why on earth didn't they think of that?! Wow, imagine the extra challenge if when they'd stopped the train they had to turn the AC back on! What a climax!
