Default UNTHINKABLE = unmissable

Just watched a film called Unthinkable, has anyone else seen it?
It was released last year and stars Sam jackson, Michael Sheen and Carrie Ann moss.

Its possibly one of the best movies i have seen, the subject matter is amazing and so very well acted.

So the story is about a white american muslim terrorist, hes former US millitary who has smuggled enough nuclear material into the US to make 3 bombs, hes placed them in 3 places in the US and then has given him self up while the bombs are all on timers set to go off in three days.

Anyway the story is about how far would people in the military and law enforcement go to get the information out of this guy before the three days runs out and the 3 bombs kill 30 million plus.....to the point that the solution is "Unthinkable"

Anyway the movie went straight to video and i think thats because the US wasnt ready for a movie that covers the subjects it does in light of things that had happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and Guantanamo.

See it if you can

I saw it, must say i didn't really like it. I found the plot to be far too predictable and the acting was clearly low budget. Thats just my opinion though, and i do think the subject matter was pretty intriguing. It could have been better executed though, but the idea was right.

Really not my thing. While yes, the subject matter was a good idea to address, i'm with Muffin on it. It was poorly executed.

Frankly though.... :
