In Unhinged, Russell Crowe plays the kind of guy who shoots unhinged political rant videos in sunglasses from the driver’s seat of his pickup. One day, presumably when recording a belated diatribe against Obama, he ends up missing a traffic light switching to green, and the lady behind him honks and swerves around him. This makes the Academy Award-winning actor from Gladiator absolutely lose his shit. He is completely PO’d that this person—a female even!—would honk him out. So begins a deadly cat and mouse between truck video guy and woman who would dare blare her pedestrian car’s noisemaker at him.
While the film’s straight-outta-Curb premise is admittedly pretty funny, this thing looks like absolute dog shit. So it’s odd that Unhinged is being billed as not a VOD release but the first new movie to hit actual theaters post-quarantine. Originally scheduled to arrive in September, it’s now been moved up to July 1.
