...words alone do no justice to this movie (by tekrc_beaner)
I will try to write this without giving to much away. I just finished watching this movie, and my jaw is still on the floor. First and foremost, this is Samuel L. Jackson's best movie by far, even better than Pulp Fiction. All I want to say without spoiling it is this: With an American born terrorist on the loose ready to bring jihad to America, the rules are thrown out the window. During the entire movie, I was literally on the edge of my seat muttering "hold crap" among other more colorful expletives. As the film progressed, so did my level of adrenalin as you are drawn into <more>
this film to the point where you feel you are part of it witnessing the insanity in person. My heart was beating a million miles a second just waiting to see what happens next.I know this review may suck, but it is like that because I just don't want to ruin a movie of this magnitude. You must see this movie, but be prepared to have your entire thought process, values, religion, and moral center to be challenged not by this movie, but by yourself. Do your self a favor and WATCH THIS MOVIE. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
Michael Sheen being brilliant is hardly anything special nowadays as the guy is a pretty amazing actor. Brian Clough, Tony Blair, Nero, Kenneth Williams just 4 exceptional roles this Brit lad has played. This time he plays a scary as hell protagonist who is scary because he is seemingly ordinary rather than a super villain. And it's the ordinary that we should fear most rather than some camp guy stroking a cat. The rest of the cast is pretty good too especially some of the minor role playing actors who do a pretty convincing job of looking petrified by what is happening. Similar to the <more>
BBC play Dirty War but a bit more intense we see the race against time to establish the truth or not of the threat made by Yussef an American convert to Islam who has allowed himself to be captured and says he has planted 3 nuclear bombs in major cities and they are set to explode on Friday at noon. How do you combat this kind of extreme terror and do you even believe it to be possible. No time for a discussion over tea and cakes as millions of lives are in the balance. So what would you do? Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary solutions whether we like to think about them or not. How civilised dare we be when the lives of so many are at stake. Not your usual Hollywood fare and a movie well worth an hour and a half of your time that leaves a lot of thought in your head long after it ends. Unthinkable is certainly the theme for this movie from beginning to end but inevitable seems a better one unfortunately. And no Peter this review is not written by someone associated with the film anymore than yours is mate simply my opinion of it.
This will test your moral boundaries...will leave you in awe (by cnrathi)
This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. It tested my moral boundary. I am not reviewer and neither do I usually write comments, but this one was so compelling that I had to write something.It will make you think... What is right? What is wrong? How would you define that? This American movie is asking question from its very own American audience... what is US doing.It has a very very strong message. Find the message.Acting from all the actors is great. Direction is good. Setting is real. Characters are real.Samuel Jackson did good and looked very real.The antagonist or shall we say <more>
Don't miss the point of this film like so many appear to .... (by jaffacake2k)
I didn't have much of a clue about what this film was about when i watched it - other than is starred the iconic Samuel L Jackson and Carrie Ann Moss - and it was a 'Hollywood' film.Only this Isn't a 'Hollywood' film. Unlike the usual formulaic production line fare that Hollywood usually cranks out - THIS film stands apart. It doesn't follow the same formula which so many do to get bums on seats. There isn't even a romantic sub-plot. Which i found VERY refreshing! Simply put this film attempts to explore moral boundaries ... Our own just as much as those of <more>
our on-screen protagonists. Unlike many people that watch this film I didn't come away feeling id been exposed to some 'liberal' or 'NWO' propaganda. Those reviewers seem to be suffering from a 21st century dose of 'reds under the beds' ...The setting of the film could be ANYWHERE - the fact that its in America with a Muslim 'villain' is merely a reflection of its intended audience and social environment. The point of the film is: Is torture justifiable? How do you balance the morality of torture against its real world 'benefits'... ? The premise is: A man has planted nuclear bombs in 3 American cities. He is in custody and the US security services need to extract the locations of the bombs within 72 hours. So they begin to torture the man.So how far do you go? Can you trust the information revealed? Who is 'good' and who is 'evil'? I don't want to spoil the film so will say there are many more variables which are featured ...Some people have complained about the 'gore'. Personally i didn't find it 'gorey'. Especially with the likes of the SAW films out there! There are some sequences which involve 'blood' etc but these are well executed, brief and far from gratuitous. Much of the torture off camera as its the moral implications which are there to make you feel uncomfortable - not the visual ones.This isn't a traditionally 'enjoyable' or 'entertaining' film. However i was captivated from the opening scene and was intrigued throughout. Its well acted, well scripted and well considered.Its a shame that many people will not take away what they could and should from this film - but that is a reflection of then - not a reflection of Unthinkable! 9/10
The price of keeping our way of life (by abermans)
Watched it last night and was really impressed. This is the sort of film that gets you thinking about your own moral grounds... how far would you have gone in order to save 1000s of lives. The story is simple, realistic and very current which makes it really efficient. I do believe this sort of threat by a single/small independent group of terrorists getting hold of a dirty bomb is the one we should all be loosing sleep over. It does require a fairly strong stomach and will get some people uneasy with some of the torture scenes but this is exactly the purpose of the film. The acting by the <more>
lead roles is superb - both Jackson and Moss are playing at the top of their game. While the storyline is not likely to be politically popular and therefore I will be surprised if we'll see many awards headed up this film's way. Still, hats off for memorable roles for both of them. I don't think that everybody can watch this film, I doubt my wife could sit through all of it without some serious cringing. The subject of the film however is important enough to suggest that anyone who can tolerate strong violence on the screen should make time to watch the film. While enjoyable it probably not a good word to describe this film, it is surely memorable and impressive.
An excellent "what-if" scenario that will make you think (by prizm4)
Carrie-Anne Moss represents the average citizen watching this movie, having a facade of superior human rights beliefs that we tend to have in western countries that gradually get whittled away as the situation in the movie get more desperate.How far are we really willing to go to save millions of people? When the entire country is at stake, how far is the US really willing to go with dealing with terrorists? We can claim our governments are moral and upholding human rights, but at the end of the day, the government can do whatever it wants. It doesn't need your approval, and it will do <more>
what it believes is required for self-preservation. This movie flaunts that idea.Unthinkable has excellent mind-play and dialogue that really gets you thinking and challenges what we really believe about human rights.
How much do we value our freedom? When faced with exceptional circumstances, how far will we go to ascertain the truth, to secure safety? To ensure national security? "Unthinkable" is a problematic movie, in that it gives no clear answers. The premise may be slightly extreme, if we consider what H Samuel L. Jackson gets up to, but then again, with some rationalizing we easily reach the conclusion that we simply don't know just how far America has gone in the legal torture business.We do not intend to point the finger at America in particular. This applies to any and everyone. <more>
Faced with extenuating circumstances, what would we do? Make no mistake, ladies and gentlemen. "Unthinkable" is a very current, undebatably intense uneasy ride down a steep, winding and twisting tunnel.In the end we are left with nothing. It is up to us to decide what is our moral charter.Well worth your while. 8/10
Although many viewers are thinking this film is offending Muslims, I personally do not agree with them.Michael Sheen was playing very well and he did a good job -as always- here. Samuel L. Jackson was very "deep" in this movie and his acting was excellent.The film grabs you and takes you to it's world. You are constantly thinking how the characters are going to behave and what choices they are going o make, at the same time you can't keep yourself from thinking "What would I do in that situation?' and so on. The ending was shocking but it could have been made <more>
slightly better trying not to give any spoilers . The only cause that should keep someone from not watching this film would be mild gore and some torture scenes.
with the current times we live in, the plot is really believable. there were a couple times in the movie where I went "holy crap did he really just do that" without revealing too much this is the kind of movie that makes you think even after the movie ends thats how I know I just watched a good one Makes me think about how our government handles certain situations and how different bureaus clash over jurisdiction. good cast, Samuel L Jackson plays the role very well as well as the rest of the cast. I just hope we never have this situation happen in real life but the way things are <more>
going now with the world its more of a question when is this going to happen...
