Audience Reviews for Unthinkable
A routine thriller about finding the usual obligatory hidden bomb (ok! ok! so it's an atom bomb!) in time is given some serious teeth with the question of how far we might be willing to go in order to fight extremism. Me likey, even though the characters are often little more than simply cut-outs. The arguing over whether or not to torture or not gets to feel stagey at times, but the overall production makes its point and we have a darntootin' good time along the way. Michael Sheen is the glue that holds it all together.
An intense thriller that is thought provoking. But it's sloppy handle leaves more to be desired!
An intense, hard-boiled and mind-blowing edge of your seat thriller. A powerful and astonishing film. It's a timely, stunning and relentlessly exciting film that should not be missed. A film that's as real and gut-wrenching as it is shockingly entertaining. It's solidly well-crafted and superbly performed. A ticking clock cat and mouse ride that's razor-sharp and utterly suspenseful from start to finish. An excellent film. This is one explosive and heart-pounding ride that commands your attention and has a vicious and cold message. Samuel L. Jackson gives one of the most mesmerizing and unforgettable performances of his career, its right up there with Black Snake Moan and Pulp Fiction. Jackson is a pure knockout, you will not want to take your eyes off him. Carrie-Ann Moss is outstanding, she brings as much strength to to her character as she does emotional vulnerability. Michael Sheen is brilliant, he acts with fire and riveting energy that truly explodes in this film.

|"H":||There is no H. and Younger... there's only victory and defeat. The winner gets to take the moral high-ground, because they get to write the history books. The loser... just loses. The only miscalculation in your plan... was me.|
