The most suspenseful thriller of the year explores just how far we will go to protect ourselves and our country. When a nuclear expert-turned-extremist plants devices in three separate cities, the country’s counter-terrorism force springs into action and captures him. But the location of his bombs remains a mystery. With time running out, FBI agent Helen Brody agrees to work alongside a mysterious interrogator known only as “H”, whose ruthless methods get results. But a power struggle develops between Brody, “H’, and the terrorist, and what happens next is unbelievable and -ultimately-Unthinkable!
Unthinkable is a great movie with a brilliant cast and good writing. The story is just brilliant and it really had you on the edge of your seat. The acting was great as we see some fantastic show-stealing performances from Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Sheen and Carrie-Anne Moss. The characters were brilliantly written and the character development was good as well. The pacing was great and the writing and the directing was done well. This is just a fantastic movie.
I love a movie that really makes you think after you watch it and Unthinkable is one of them. It makes you wonder how far people would go to protect millions of lives, including ourselves and the ones you love. The thing that stood out for me in the movie was the brilliant performances, the actors really brought their characters to life. Samuel L. Jackson played his character H fantastically and with no faults and Carrie-Ann Moss did a great job playing her character Agent Brody but the one who stood out from the two fantastic actors was Michael Sheen who played Younger. I thought that his performance as Younger was outstanding and he was very convincing as his character. The story was gripping and brilliant and it had me and wondering what would happen in the next scene. Also, another great thing about this movie is its twists and turns, which were unpredictable and brilliantly done. Overall, a fantastic thriller that any thriller fan will love.
I was completely on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Simply fantastic, the cast and crew did a great job on this!
