Attention Please

Attention Please is a story about a girl, Yoko Misaki, age around 20 years old, who had lost her mother at young age. She had a crush on a guy, Tsukasa. Tsukasa always make fun of Misaki because of her boyish ettique, appearance just like a men. The way she walk and dress is not that feminin. One day, Tsukasa mentions that he wonders how she would look like in a uniform, the uniforms of the stewardess or in other word, cabin attendant. So she took it seriously, and work hard to wear the uniforms. She goes through ups and downs while she is in the training to become a cabin attendant, yet, she still keep smiling, good in hiding her sadness. From a girl who lack of manners, rough, unpatient, she turns out to be an outstanding cabin attendant. She manage to handle any issues that happen during the flight. She still the old Misake-san who loves to make hilarious spontaneous action, cheering up her friends, give them supports from the back and the side.

The first lesson that i learned from this movie is, DON'T YOU EVER KNOW THE WORD 'give up'. No matter how it starts, you started it, and you need to finish what you have started. Do not turn your back, keep the strong enthusiasms in your heart and in your mind, the whole body will do the same. Eventhough Misaki almost giving up, but she stand up and took her weakness as a challenge to move forward. She is a strong girl. Students nowadays should motivate theirself whenever they failed doing something or the things that they want turns upside-down. Therefore, stand up straight! Fight for your future sake!

There is one day when she was 'borrowing' her Senpai also known as Senior, uniforms, with the seniority scarf. Peoples, customers, guests and staffs treat her like she is real cabin attendant. She gets too exiting about wearing the uniform till a women which is a passenger ask her to guide her because she could not understand Japanese. Both of them, Misaki and the women, could not understand other languages and they are not really good in English. Misaki gets stress-out about the issue. Later on she started to think of the solution. She came out with this great idea, use a Body language. And she made it! She manage to guide the women to the gate and the women thank Misaki for her help. That day means a lot to Misaki, she learn more from the passenger that day and she started to understand the role of a cabin attendant. It is not just wearing gorgeous uniforms, it is all about helping the passengers, treating them equally with fully manners and enlighten their day.

Misaki-san working hard to get through the training session and pass the exam in order for her to become a cabin attendant. She use her free-time by applying all the knowledge that she has learned through-out the months from her instructor, Mikami Tamaki. Misaki used to give a burden to her group-mates when she always making some trouble and coming to class late. She is changing herself slowly from her appearance, attitudes, and performance. No one knows that she is practically training in the Training Room until one of her bestfriend notice it and inform it to their group-mates on how Misaki is trying hard to makesure everything going right. Misaki hopes that they all of them will pass the intermediate exam with flying colours. And they did. Congrats!

In conclusion, there is tons of other lessons that we can gain through this Japanese Drama. Please kindly watch this drama, ask me if you want the 11 episode of Attention Please. This drama help me to be more motivated and focus on my goal. It taught me for not knowing the word 'giving up'. If you are going through a problem, try to understand the situation and try to find the solution. Do not take something simply, because you may not know that it is more than that. To achieve something that you have dream of, you need to work hard and stay strong to achieve your goal. You the one that start to think about the goal, and you are the one that is responsible to complete it. Attitude is an important thing that you need to take care of. You knew your attitude, but you yourself are hard to trace which one is bad. People around you can see your real attitude, therefore, open up your mind, try to make some changes, from bad to better. It worth if you do it in the correct way. Avoid tuning fingers to others, infact, tune it to yourself. You will gain some lesson from it. Good Luck and thank you.

Saving Private Ryan

The story begins on June 6, 1944 in Normandy on Omaha Beach. Captain John Miller and his men land on a beach where the battle rages. In England, some realize that three of the four brothers of the Ryan family have died in combat. A rescue mission is organized to find the last of the four brothers, James F. Ryan, which was conducted by Captain Miller with a small elite group of 8 men. Only later, by chance, Miller finds Ryan and he announces to him that he has lost his three brothers and has his ticket back home. But, Ryan insists to defend the bridge over the Merderet river which he was assigned. Germans attack! The battle rages between SS troops with a regiment of armored units and the small American group. Finally, at the last moment, American planes attack. Of the 8 men in search of Ryan, only 2 survive. Ryan, meanwhile, has returned home, in Iowa. He will try to live as best he can to honor the sacrifice of the men who died to save him.
The moral of the story which I found in this movie is we must complete the task or mission that was given to us. During the mission to save Ryan, the soldiers doubts about why they have to face the danger only to save a person from war. It then became worse when one of the eight soldiers that conducted the mission was killed. He was killed by a German sniper in a Norman village in ruins. Despite that, Captain Miller ask their remaining men to continue the mission and they done just that. Lastly, only two from eight soldiers survived in that mission. I am very impressed with their determination to complete the task given to them although they knew that the task was dangerous and ridiculous.
This movie also contains nationalism moral value. As a citizen, we must always ready to defend our country if the enemy, such as Israel attacked us. The show shows that Nationalism is important in each human being. The American soldiers battle to the death in order to achieve victory for their nation. For example, in Normanday in Omaha Beach, U.S. soldiers are being slaughtered and survive only those who put themselves in the shelter of a dune. In a conclusion, we must ready to defend our nation if it being attacked.
The most important moral value in this show is we must make preparations before doing something. In this story, we can see that moral value when Captain Miller pick the seven best soldiers to bring with him to conduct a mission. While, the soldiers prepared themselves by taking the best equipment to bring such as weapons and food. Besides, Captain Miller and his men prepared a deadly booby-trap to face the overwhelming German soldiers in the last battle. They placed boms inside the road and under the bridge to damage the enemy tanks. He also made a clinical strategy such as placing a sniper on top of a building. So, we must always prepare ourselves in order to overcome the problems that will face us.
In a conclusion, the duty that was given to us must be finished. We must also must defend our country if it being attacked by evil enemy.

Kung fu Panda Extravaganza

Kung fu Panda Extravaganza
I like to watching movie. Obviously, on weekend with my friends at the cinema. There are many movie I already watched. I found some of them very interesting also some of them is bad. I want to share about a movie I think the best movie I have seen so far in my life. The movie was kung fu panda. I had already watched this movie about ten times because I like this movie very much. Here I want to share about what I had learned lesson through this movie.
            First, this movie is about a big fat panda who are very interested in china’s kung fu art. He does not believe in himself to be a master in china’s  kung fu art but it is his dream every all the single day. But finally, he found the way to prove his talent even he is a big fat panda in the town. So in my opinion, I already learned something good lesson that I can follow. That is, we must believe in ourselves and there is nothing that we cannot do. Just believe in ourselves.
            Second, before the panda be a master in china’s  kung fu art, he got a lot of troubles. For example, because of his big fat body, no one trusted him can achieve the stage of master in kung fu art. Even his sifu also does not trusted in him to be the dragon warrior. But he does not give up easily. He face all the troubles without feel tired. We can see the value of determination in his heart. So, from this lesson, we can follow this good value and apply it in our everyday life to make our life more better.
            Lastly, I already learned a valuable lesson trough this movie. That is do not judge people by their appearance. Even the panda have a big stomach and fat in all his body, he got powerful talent in kung fu art and his heart is hard like a stone because it is not easy to be great warrior in kung fu art within many lack in personality and he will never give up all the way to achieve the name of ‘dragon warrior’. So do not say people who have week appearance does not have brave heart.
            In a nutshell, based on this movie, we can conclude that even we are not good at everything, but we must good at something. So we have to find in ourselves about our talent with full of patient and have knowledge. So that we can achieve what we wan and what we dream about. Based on this movie, I think this is the best movie ever because I will laugh all the single minute when I watching this movie and it make me so happy. Hahaha…huhuhu….hihihi…!! =)=)

Finding Nemo

This is an animated comedy adventure about finding a very small fish in a very large ocean. Marlin is a more-than-slightly paranoid Clown Fish who is extremely devoted to his young son, Nemo , the only survivor after an undersea predator swallowed up Nemo's mother and her other offspring. It's not Marlin's nature to explore unfamiliar waters, but when he and Nemo are accidentally separated near the Great Barrier Reef en route to Nemo's first day of fish school, Marlin gathers his courage and sets out to find his son.

However, while Nemo was looking at a boat passing on the surface, he was caught in a net and given a new home in a dentist's aquarium. As Marlin searches for his son, he makes friends with a friendly but absent-minded Regal Blue Tang named Dory , a Great White Shark named Bruce  who is trying to cut fish out of his diet, a beach-rat Sea Tortoise named Crush , and Nigel , a Pelican who can take Marlin's search from the ocean to dry land. 

There’s a moral for both parents and children in this movie. For children, it is to listen to your parents because they know what is the best for you, defying could lead to you endangering yourself. For parents the moral is to understand that children need a certain amount  of independence whilst growing up so that they can learn from their mistakes. Parents also should give the word spirit to their children so that they are     trying toimprove themselves and become the pride of the family.

Be faithful to your friends while your friend need you. Helping a friend when the situation is difficult or easy, and one day he will help us as well. We do not expect a reply and the help that the characteristics of a faithful friend. A true friend is a friend who always respects us, tolerance, and gives good views and suggestions to us. Like in this story, Dori is always looking for other fish to help find the child Marlin, Nemo and sometimes Marlin played by friends of Dori about he missing child.

Besides that, we also do not give up easily in the face of many obstacles that hit and strive to find solutions. If working in groups, work as a team. In conclusion, the moral of the story is listen to your parents and for parents is understand that children need a certain of independence. Be faithful to your friends and do not give up easily.

          Toy story is a buddy movie or an adventure tale with the two main characters are cowboy Woody and the old-time favorite space ranger Buzz Lightyear as the battery-operated newcomer. This story is about Woody, a traditional pull-string talking cowboy, has long enjoyed a place of honor as the favorite among six-year-old Andy’s menagerie of toys. Quick to calm their anxieties about being replaced by newer arrivals, Woody finds his own confidence shaken and his status as top toy in jeopardy, upon the arrival of Buzz Lightyear, simply the coolest space action figure ever made. Woody plots to get rid of Buzz, but finally he and Buzz was lost in the outside world with Buzz as his only companion. Joining forces to find their way home, the two rivals set out on an adventure that lands them in the clutches of Sid, a sadistic neighborhood kid who is notorious for dismembering and reassembling “mutant” toys in his bedroom. As “guest” of Sid, Woody and Buzz forge a genuine friendship and learn that only through mutual trust and not easily give up is their only chance of survival.
          “Friendship will never end”. We always heard that sentences and we also might agree with it. It is true that friendship will never end if it base on a genuine friendship. Without a genuine friendship, the relationship that has been build will surely become estranged or even worse, might be break. Example of friendship that we can see from this movie is a friendship that has been build between Andy and Woody. Even though Woody is only a toy, but for Andy, Woody is his best friend and when Woody is missing from home, Andy felt so sad. Another example that we can see in this story is when Woody show this quality of friendship when he tried to save Buzz from being exploded by Sid using an explode-rocket. Even though Woody had tried to get rid of Buzz, but at the end of the story they become best-friend because of that incident.   As a conclusion, a good friend is a friend that always will stand by your side no matter in what condition.  
          Second lessons that I learn through this movie is the important of mutual trust in a relationship. Mutual trust is a shared belief that depend on each other to achieve a common purpose. In this story, mutual trust is shown when Woody and Buzz tried to escape from Sid’s room. Woody and Buzz build a mutual trust by teamwork in their mission to find their way out. Another mutual trust example that we can see from this movie is when the tiny little soldiers are cooperate to get down from Andy’s room to scout out the new arrivals of present on birthdays and Christmas.  In conclusion, it is strongly recommended that mutual trust is a critical value that relationship should have so that the relationship will last forever. Without a mutual trust, a relationship that been build will be fragile and easily break.
          Third lesson that I get from this story is don’t let jealously control your thinking or get in the way of making new friend. In this movie, because of jealously, Woody tried to get rid of Buzz because he think that Andy’s will never play with him again after Buzz is coming into Andy’s “world”. But things backfire and Woody finds himself lost in the outside world with Buzz as his only companion. Nevertheless, Woody had to cooperate with Buzz to find their way home to Andy’s room. Furthermore, jealously will only getting a relationship in a worse condition. So, as the conclusion, we must tried to get rid of our jealously if we care about the relationship that has been build.
          Last but not least, as the conclusion, genuine friendship and mutual trust is the most critical value that friendship should have in a way of having a long-lasting relationship. In addition, don’t let jealously get in your mind and control your thinking or get in the way of making new friend so that we will be able to get more new friends. :)

3 Idiots =)

The movie I choose for this assignment is 3 idiots, directed by Rajakumar Hirani. Rancho (Amir Khan) is the most rebelling among them that always questioning things and believing that learning is more important than you study hard to get a better job after graduation. He encourages his friends to look beyond the ordinary of  life and soon he earns the dean list by the college director Viru Sahasrabuddhe (Boman Irani), but fondly  students called him Virus. As he is fun and wacky, Rancho always surprises everyone by topping the class. He even manages to win director's daughter heart, Pia (Kareena Kapoor).  But Rancho's greatest lie is actually making his friends realize their true calling. The twist comes when on the Graduation Day. After being awarded the student of  the year title, Rancho mysteriously disappears without says a goodbye. Years later, Farhan (Madhavan) and Raju(Sharman Joshi), together  they finding  a way and with the help of some clues, they find their friend, Rancho. 3 Idiots is a story of striven at college, a friendship, a hope, and most importantly, the goodness of life.
In the first 15 minutes of this movie start, Rancho teaches us work hard is important to get an excellent result, which is a core message of this film. Excellent cannot be reached if you do it with fearfully as Farhan wants to be a wild photographer but he need to full filled her father’s dream, to be an engineer. Raju, a poor kid who is so afraid with a failure until he become a low self confidence person and Chatur (Omi), who is learning and memorized like a machine to compete with other students to get a best student’s  award. In the nutshell, with a work hard and patience, we can achieve our dreams.
The next lesson is a friendship. In this movie thought the audience to be a faithful friend as they always pass through thick and thin together. For example, Raju is willing to jump against the director’s window at his office because he need to decide whether he will be dismissed from the college or Rancho, his best friend because they breaking the rules. Fortunately, Raju is saved because of a quick action but he in a coma condition. As Rancho and Farhan knows Raju will survive, they do whatever it takes to heal him. I very impressed with their spirit of friendship because they never cares what they do as long as their friend happy with it.
Other than that, audience also can see a hope as a moral value in this movie. Such an example, Rancho always kept a hope that he will confess his feelings at Pia, although Pia is a daughter of his director college, Virus. At last, he managed it and Pia likes him too. This value also can be seen in Raju’s character as he always praying to the god that he will get the flying colour of his result exam. He willing to wear a talisman and seeing a monk to get some advice. Raju also hope that he can change their family life because his father is paralyzed and his mother are getting old to make some money. In a conclusion, human always hope that they will achieve their goals instead of working hard.
Last but not least, we can see the goodness of life start with ourselves. For example, we do not need to force ourselves to do what we do not want to do.  It will gives us a bad consequences. We can see at Farhan character, as he is the last ranking student in their college. It is happened because he does not have any interest in engineering. He always embarrassed with his director, Virus. Rancho is the best example about goodness of life. Although he is an orphan, he always doing the best to achieve his target in his life. Most of them are successful and after he graduate, he become greatest scientist at India. 
 This movie also gives a lot of simple science fact but at the same time, it teaches us how to apply into our lives. For an example, salt water is good a conductor electricity. Everyone mostly read this but not applied it I their lives.  But after watch this movie, I know this statement is proved as I can think it with logically. In this movie, Rancho applied it to his senior for escaping of getting ragged on his very first day of the Imperial Engineering College. Besides it can give us a loud of laugh, we also can cry as the message of this movie is very touching.

         Crows zero is a action, comedy and violence movie directed by Takashi Miike. This movie is an adaptation from comics Crows. Crows zero is story about Suzuran high school, not famous in education but known strongly as the bad school. The goal all members suzuran is want to be the strongest school at japan. This school is headed by Takiya Genji. He want to prove to his father(Yakuza leader) and another school that he can join Yakuza(the feared mafia organisation). He fights another school named Housen that have same purpose like Suzuran. Everyone known Housen as ‘the army of killers’. Finally, Genji get respectful from Suzuran members because won the fought with Mito Tatsuya(leader Housen). Suzuran wear the black uniform school while the Housen choose the white colour as their uniform school. I liked this movie not only its action, but it is a lot of moral value.

Firstly, the moral value that I learn from this movie is friendship. Bond among members suzuran is tightly and precisely. In this movie, we can see when one members of suzuran had been beaten with Housen, all the members suzuran comes to revenges to their friend. They never let their member get hurt unless if they all deal to fight as the man(one by one) with Housen. The rest of the member just watch without intefere the both fighting. They never join or help because it symbol of honour for the real man. The both school must admit who was won as the strong fighter. Suzuran members relationship like siblings. In proverb like water will not be chopped off.

Secondly, another lesson is never give up. They must fight until they fall down or fainted. This characteristic have at their leader Genji that don’t know means of give up. He only knew wanted to bring back honour to Suzuran. From this soul he have trusted and respected from Suzuran members to led them. Genji also has won fight with Tatsuya due to this features. For me as student, we must have this spirit to face all the conjecture and challenge in our journey. If we weak or easily discouraged will been failed in our future.

Another lesson that i got from this movie is brave. This lesson we can see in the climax from this movie. The climax is when Genji comes to fighting alone against Housen leader. Genji did not want any of them get hurt because they are less in number than Housen. To full his promised, he comes alone to defeat Tatsuya and Housen member. This because as the head of Suzuran, he is proud bearer of the honour even know he would lose if fight with Tatsuya and the gangs. This teach me that I must brave to against all challengers and conjecture that will come especially as a student. Genji like a candle burning itself for other people.

Finally is love. Even this movie genre is action, comedy and violence it still have element love. The reasons is we can’t run from the love natural feeling as a human being. The proof is Genji has own love story with his girlfriend but at this not to highlight. Genji also loves the Suzuran and don’t want they all got beaten, that is why he decide to go alone to defeat Tatsuya.When his members got knows they have went to help their leader. This shows the followers love their leader.

          In conclusion, this story not suitable for public viewing because it has element violence. But, if we look at another side this story have many moral value that we can practice in our life. As a student I must have all this lesson from this movie. We keep the good and the bad things we throw far a way from our life. This moral value can helped me in my journey. Last but not least ” we can fly like crows, but we can’t follows his ways”. Think about it.

Movie review: damping malam

Movie review: Damping malam
           Damping malam is about a couple, Wadi(Ahmad Idham) and Ku Khalira(Amy Mastura) who have been married for 14 years and are blessed with a daughter, Nuraiza(Erynne Erynna). Nuraiza is raised by her mysterious aunt, Umi Siah(Azizah Mahzan). It started when the child went to boarding school. The child and her family is disturbed by a devil. After so many things happen, her father seek for his friend who is also an ustaz. One by one secrets revealed and finally the husband knows about his wife lineage. The ending of the story is the child is died. She was claimed by the devil that her mother make a deal with. The lessons in this movie is trust, the important of family, and never make a deal with devil.

          First lesson that can be learned is trust. Trust is a belief that somebody that somebody is honest, sincere and will not try to harm or trick you. However, in this movie of Damping malam, Ku Khalira does not believe her husband as she afraid Wadi would have another woman behind her knowledge. This is also shown by Wadi who do not believe Umi Siah and she have been thrown away from the house. This is because Wadi believe that she is having a contract with devil. Therefore, we must have a positive thinking and should investigate the things first before we can accuse them on what they are not doing.

          Second lesson is the important of family. Family is a group consist of parents and children. Family is a closest person in our life and we are nothing without our family members. We must reconsider our family first because they will make sure that our decision is correct and give advantages to us. However, in this movie, Wadi had neglected his family and busy with his work as a businessman. He always with his friends and rarely back to his house. This shoud not be happened because family is important for us to rely on. If not, we will be alone and cannot share our feelings and ideas towards them.

          Last but not least, the third lesson is never make a deal or contract with devil. Devil is the most powerful evil spirit or satan. This is shown by Ku Khalira who make a deal to make sure her husband will loyal to her and would not looking for other woman. If she cannot renew the contract she made, she has to face the consequences where one of her family members will be dead. Therefore, we should not make any deal with devil because it have many bad consequences.Her daughter, Nuraiza was died because she cannot renew the contract as the shaman has died.
           In a nutshell, Damping malam give us many valuable lessons that can be use in our daily life. It tells us about the important of family. Family is everything to us and we are nothing without family. Then, it is about trust. It is essential in our life because it can change everything whether it is good or not. Lastly, never make a deal with devil. This should not be happen cause we should believe in God not devil. God is most powerful and the most merciful.


mobieee review -=_____=

Dear John is a 2010 romantic drama-war starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried. It was released theatrically in North America on February 5, 2010. The film was directed by Lasse Hallström, and it is an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's novel of the same name. Special Forces Army Sergeant John Tyree (Channing Tatum) is home on leave from Germany when he meets Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried). John and Savannah falls in love at first sight . As she is about to go back to college, she promises to write John overseas during the next 12-months until he returns to her after completing his enlistment.

First lesson that I learn from this movie is about love. In Dear John the love between Savannah and John was powerful and the movie had a sense of reality throughout every scene. They fall in love at first sight just two weeks. Many people fall in love and try to make things work, but as time goes on and the distance begins to feel larger and larger, the relationship changes as do the people. Also John and his father weren't as close in the beginning as they became in the end and ithey developed a better relationship before his fatehr died. Although it was obvious, in certain ways, that John's father had always loved and cared about him.

The second lesson based on this movie lend a hand for others when they need it. John visits Savannah and he discovers Tim has suffer from cancer. Savannah notes that Tim is confined to a hospital and in need of an experimental drug they cannot afford John sells his father's coin collection, though he keeps the first mule coin they found together. He anonymously donates the money from the sale to finance Tim's drug.

The last lesson that I discover after watching this movie is forgiveness. After Savannah has left him for Tim without telling him the truth why Savannah bear to ended their relationship, John still forgive her with all his heart and willing to accept her because he still loving her. John also forgive Tim for what he already done. John visits Tim in the hospital, where Tim apologizes to John for the situation and he also notes that Savannah still loves John and John accept his apologizes.

Dear John certainly had it’s moments of typical mush and gush, and had a lot of events created solely for the purpose of making you squirm or cry, but what surprised me was how interesting the characters were and how the journey’s of their lives, circumstances, and choices changed them forever. The end is unfortunately awkward and abrupt. The story deserved a more honest conclusion, but it had it’s relevance.

Syurga Cinta (Heavenly Love)

          Syurga Cinta is one of the movie directed by Ahmad Idham who is famous director in Malaysian film industry. This movie is about the love between two people with different ideologies, a Muslim boy named Irham who lives a very modern influenced with Western lifestyle, and a Muslim girl named Syuhadah  who faithfully follows the teachings of Islam in Malaysia's modern society. When their two worlds collide, they face issues and confrontations that both of them have yet to learn and understand from each other. Based on this movie, there are many good lesson that can be learned such as  parents should guide their child in properly way, we have to recognize our own mistakes and we have to be aware in judging someone.

          For the first lesson, parents should guide their children in properly way. According to this movie, we can see that parents Irham did not play as a good example to their child. This can be seen when they did not advised their son who always went out at night for clubbing and brought any women to their home. Even they also drank and socialize together with their friends at the nightclub.  From example given, we need to emphasis the religious values in our daily life. Without the element of that , we can easily to influence  and practice the western lifestyle.

          Second lesson, we have to recognize our own mistake that we had done. At the end of this movie shows that Irham realized his own mistake and want to change his lifestyle from western to the more religious person. He willing to meet an ustaz to learn more about Islam deeply. Other examples can be seen when he was given a challenge by his mates to court a pious Muslim girl, Syuhadah. Within a month, he must break up their relationship in front of his friends to win the bet. Since of that, he feels so regret with their action and strive to win her love back.

          Last but not least, we have to be aware in judging someone. In this case Syuhada had easily deceived by Irham who was planning to impose on her. She did not know that Irham and his mates had bet each other to court her. After she gave her love to Irham, she knew that Irham dishonest with her when he brought her to meet his mates at the restaurant and told all their planning to her.
          In conclusion, Syurga Cinta is the one of the movies that send out messages of religious values that we can use it in our daily life. This movie not only portrayed about the beautiful of Islam but also shows the useful lessons that we can learn on how to be a good parents in many aspects, how to do a change in our life and always be aware in judging other people that we do not know their background.

Unstoppable. :')

Unstoppable is a 2010 American action thriller film directed by Tony Scott, written by Mark Bomback, and starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. Unstoppable is a drama about a runaway train is carrying a dangerous cargo of combustible liquids and poisonous gas. Two men, Frank Barnes and Will Colson, are sent by the yardmaster to do the near impossible board the runaway train and stop it before it is too late. They're chasing the runaway train in a separate locomotive and need to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town. Throughout this thriller movie, there are lessons that we could learn, such as family is the most important and precious thing in the world, willing to sacrifice for others and earnest in making something so successful.

  First lesson that I’ve learned from this movie is, family is the most important thing in the world. Will Colson, who has problem with his wife and in the process of divorce, want to apologize and get back with his family. Unfortunately, his wife refused to talk to him and even answered his call. While Frank Barnes, who has two daughters and his wife had passed away from cancer is very happy with his life. Unfortunately one day, one of his daughter sulks because he forgot that that day was her birthday and he could not celebrate her birthday because he had to go to work. Barnes and Colson meet and had to work together. On their journey, they talked about their family. Colson told Barnes that he regret and want to apologize to his wife for having thought that his wife is unfaithful while she is loyal towards him. Barnes did also told Colson that he loves his daughters so much and felt sad because her daughter did not want to talk to him just because his  small mistake. After Barnes’s daughter saw their father and Colson’s wife saw her husband on television about the accident and their braveness, they tried to call them but failed. They were so worried about them and hoped that they will alright. At this part, I could see that these people love each other so much. At the end of the story, Colson got back together with his wife and Barnes’s daughters ask their father for his forgiveness and celebrate her birthday together with him.

The next lesson based on this movie is willing to sacrifice for others. Barnes and Colson were willingly to try frantically to stop a half-mile-long freight train carrying enough combustible liquids and poisonous gas from wipe out a nearby city. This can be proven by as the train passes, Barnes  decides to put his locomotive in reverse and catch the runaway by coupling onto the back of it. Colson, at first reluctant because he knew that this idea may cause death to them, joins him. After Colson manually couples their locomotive to the train, they begin slowing it down with their own brakes, but are unable to slow the runaway down enough to safely navigate the curve. Barnes goes out onto the train and begins setting each car's brakes individually, but is stopped at a gap between two cars that is too wide to bridge.  After coming out of the curve, however, the chase locomotive's brakes blow out and the train begins to pick up speed again.Ned the welder catches up to the train in his pickup truck and Colson jumps into the back of his truck. Driving at high speed they make it to the front of the runaway, where Colson jumps to the lead locomotive and finally stops the train. From this, I can see that their willingness to sacrifice for the others eventhough will harm themselves, give a lots of good benefits for both parties. They managed to save many lives and regarded as a hero.

The last but not least lesson from this movie is earnest in making something so successful. Everybody in this movie were trying so hard to stop the train. They had been thinking so many ways in order to stop the train. The company's plan, to have an engineer pilot a lashup of two locomotives into the main line ahead of the runaway and slow it down while another employee attempts to board the lead locomotive from a helicopter is unfortunately failed and caused the death of at least one of the employees. Another attempt to stop the train with derailers in a small town fails because the train is too heavy and going too fast. At last, Barnes and Colson’s plan managed to stop the train. This shows us that everybody were trying so hard and their cooperation had save many lives at the end of the story.

In conclusion, this movie had taught us many lessons such as we must love and care about our family because family is the most important thing in this world, sometimes we must sacrifice for the others and we have to try our very best to make things successful.
