UNREQUITED is a psychological thriller and tells the story of Ben Jacobs, a troubled young man who, on his 18th birthday, has to leave the group home for "troubled teens" where he has been living for the past several months and move back in with his alcoholic mother. Upon his return, Ben soon discovers that his girlfriend, Jessica Morgan, has moved on with her life and is now dating an older college guy. Desperate for love and unable to cope with losing Jessica, Ben's troubled past catches up with him as he kidnaps her in an attempt to regain her affection. Spiraling out of control and on a very dangerous path, Ben must ultimately decide whether to let her go, or hold on to the one person he loves, even if it means destroying them both in the process.

Crazy in love.
3 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Young man returns home after some time in a rehab/foster home. Partly because as a child he witnessed his father's suicide and his mother had problems. He finds out the girl he's had a crush on since before he went away has a boyfriend and he flips and kidnaps her.

The movie is only mildly interesting. The main reason is that there is nothing special about it; nothing that stands out. Most people have seen this type of movie before and probably better versions. So unless there is a new twist, some clever writing, great suspense and cast, there is no point unless you have nothing better to do (my excuse). In short, the movie is an uneventful walk through the park; a "TV level" or kind of movie and is where it should be viewed. Love, Boloxxxi.
