Default Unthinkable

I saw this movie last night. It was pretty good actually and samuel L jackson plays his normaly dont give a f*ck attitude character. I honestly dont remember tseeing this movie advertised or dont know if its even coming to the theatres and if it doesent i can see why not. Its a movie about the torture of an American citizen who is a terrorist and they do show quite a bit of the torture.

Thumbs up The Unthinkable...

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie...due to Samual Jacksons performance...



Infact, this film kinda restored my faith in him as a actor...as Star Wars kind of destroyed it...

He played a very convincing role to me...the mixed emotions and all, the ability to turn it on, or off in an instant...emotions that is, for the sake of carrying out a task...

The sorounding cast was decent too...but Samuals character clearly carried this film...a dark hero, of sorts...(and no, I'm not refering to skin tone)...

His character was placed in a essential, yet undesirable role...a role most of us would be incapable of fulfilling...yet over the years people have to do it, for our safety...and those who do so are never made known to the public...nor do we know the countless lives that have been saved because of them...

This film shows that in life, in America...there's an 'above ground'...normal everyday life where things appear to function orderly...and then there's a 'below ground'...a sewer of sorts that many walk atop of on a daily basis...a place you don't want to go, but is essential for the above ground to function properly..

This movie takes us into the below ground sewer...that most of us are spared from ever knowing about...

It's definatly a film worth seeing, if you like realistic drama, and want to get the bad taste out of you mouth with the role Samual Jackson played in 'Revenge of the Sith' (Jedi)...this movie allows him to get back to basics...

I hadn't heard of this movie either until I seached Samuel Jackson's filmography because I really enjoy watching him. He puts so much emotion into his roles. The movie was fairly decent and he was excellent as always in his bad guy role torturing the poor guy for the entire movie. This movie is very gruesome and surprised me on some levels, but I enjoyed it. The movie earns its name. It was shall I say different from the normal Hollywood stuff that gets old at times. I never get tired of his movies. Hope he keeps acting for sometime.

On one level it sounds good and I'd take it as a recommendation. On the other I am opposed to torture porn. Even well done torture porn.

Time & Space - The book you posted the picture of has ZERO to do with the film of the same name btw. It's non fiction and an interesting read though.
