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. Written by Elissa Greer

User Reviews will be entertained.
1 November 2020 | by ThomDerdSee all my reviews

Yes there are a lot of unreal extreme nonsense in here. Scenario-wise some things don't add up and are rather unreasonable. And rather violent. Why you can watch this film and have fun: 1-Russel Crowe: i m not a fan of Russell Crowe and his aggressive persona but this role fits perfectly to his physique and acting style and he makes a pretty good villain. 2-it is an entertaining action thriller with a lot of wow! and oh! moments. 3-The film has good pace and never gets boring. 4-If you don't have much to do or to watch, then you will be entertained with this. 5-simple story: road raged angry as f driver is chasing mother with child and so... chaos erupts. 6/10
