First let me start off by saying, and I’m sure this speaks for movie lovers across the board, it is great to have movie theaters opening back up. It’s probably the best place to be for social distancing. We needed this, 2020 needed this, and ‘Unhinged’ is the perfect movie to kick things back off.
‘Unhinged’ is a 2020 thriller/horror staring The Gladiator himself Russell Crowe, Jimmi Simpson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Caren Pistorius (Mortal Engines), and Gabriel Bateman (Child’s Play). ‘Unhinged’ is the story of two people who are having a bad day, and road rage going horribly wrong. When Rachel (Pistorius) is running late for work she gets stuck behind a stranger (Crowe) at a green light. When the stranger continues to not move, Rachel becomes more and more aggravated until she lays on her car horn and goes around him. Little does she know the Stranger is having a worse day and now he’s hell bent on showing Rachel what a bad day really is.
‘Unhinged’ is relentless from start to finish. It will have you sitting on the edge of your seat the entire time. Road rage can happen anywhere, anytime, and that’s what makes ‘Unhinged’ real. Kuddos to Russell Crowe on bringing this one home. I have to go with a 10/10.
