Its a mad mad world - Unhinged (2020) - Review

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.

This movie caught me a little off guard. In these traditional thriller movies, there is the same build up and tensions, but this movie Russell Crowe was particularly violent. I heard he had a temper in real life, but maybe this is a form of therapy for him. The scenes where he inflicted torture to get at his road rage victim were extremely brutal. If you like thrillers that are very visual then check this one out.

Ranking 6.5/10
