Netflix Synopsis: It’s a nail-biting race against time as an unmanned train carrying a load of lethal chemicals speeds out of control, and a conductor and engineer do everything in their power to keep it from derailing and killing tens of thousands of people. Denzel Washington leads the cast in Tony Scott’s tough-minded action thriller, in which a terrible circumstance forces a couple of ordinary men to become extraordinary heroes.

I like this movie, but it was a little long. At times, especially after watching the new character on the SNL cast, Denzel Washington felt like a caricature of himself. You can see what I mean at this YouTube video. It was fast paced and suspenseful. But it just seemed to drag at times.
