Acting/ Performance

Comments:  
Academy-award winner Russell Crowe is the star of this film, and he does a great job of playing  raging lunatic. And overall the acting is fine, but there were a few times where I just wasn't believing 'Kyle'. And maybe that's just me being hard on child actors.

Writing/Screenplay

Comments: 
From the opening scenes, you could tell this film was going to be too much. From all the random news clips and sound bites, you could tell the writers really couldn't pick the message they were trying to send, so they picked them all. It's like someone asked them "What are you trying to convey in this film?" And they answered "Yes"

Cinematography

Comments:
I get what the filmmakers were trying to do with the in car driving shots and close ups, but some of the scenes that were meant to be foreshadowing were too obvious and heavy handed. It was like make sure you look hear where she puts her phone, because it won't be there when she gets back.

Costume Design

Comments:
I'm not going to knock any major points off for costumes. I mean it is what is for a film like this, and there were no obvious mistakes. 

Editing/Special Effects

Comments:
Minus the beginning, which felt a little choppy to me, it got most things right.

Sound/Music

Comments: 
Like most things in this film, the score was pretty bland. It played bad guy music for the bad guy, intense music for the intense scenes, etc. It didn't really add anything to the film.

Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 2.6/5.0

Recommendation: Nah! 😕

Honestly, if this hadn't been the only new movie playing, I wouldn't have watched it. I heard this movie was bad, so I came in with low expectations, and it did not disappoint. This is a bad movie. I would not recommend it. There is really nothing worth watching in this movie, unless you just have to see all of Russell Crowe's films.  If you really just want to see a movie, then by all means, go see Unhinged, otherwise I'd pass.

Au Revoir,
