So I was in the middle of the downtown Stockton movie theater, having just purchased a ticket for Todd Phillips’ comedy “Due Date,” when an advertisement for the Tony Scott/Denzel Washington action flick “Unstoppable” caught my eye.

Of course, I originally had zero interest in subjecting myself to yet another Scott-helmed assault on the senses (if “Domino” didn’t teach me my lesson, then “The Taking of Pelham 123” certainly did). However, it was one of those cool cardboard stand-up ads that features a positive review in its entirety, and I found myself being swayed by Todd McCarthy’s description of “Unstoppable” as an exceptional “blue-collar” actioner that offers shades of political subtext to go along with all the suspense.
