An Old Friend
Unhinged (2020)R | 1h 30min | Action, Thriller | 21 August 2020 (USA)
Academy Award winner Russell Crowe stars in Unhinged, a psychological thriller that takes something we've all experienced- road rage - to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late getting to work when she crosses paths with a stranger (Crowe) at a traffic light. Soon, Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who feels invisible and is looking to make one last mark upon the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse that proves you never know who you're driving next to.
WOW! and I do mean WOW! I'm giving this a 7 out of 10 stars. Not for the story or the premise but for Russell Crowe's performance. IMPRESSIVE!
Not only was his character beautifully written, his performance brought it to life in a most disturbing way. He was so convincing.
The Hollywood horror film staples are there but the whole cast portrayed their roles convincingly.
Its one of those films where you forget yer watching a movie. "Man" (Crowe's character) is seriously mentally disturbed but portrayed in such a way it could be anyone you might encounter on the roads, especially during the high stress of our current pandemic mindset. This film hits so close to reality its scary.
Certainly worth buying but if you are on the fence, rent it. You'll think twice before honking.
