“Unhinged” is a terrible movie. I sincerely hate it.⠀

It’s about a furious man seeks vengeance to the society that treats him badly and unfairly. Well…his revenge is to hurt a helpless woman and people who protect her. What’s worst? For this female victim, her lesson at the end of the film is not to infuriate males. By staying silent, she will be safe and has her redemption.⠀

It’s like “Joker”, another anti-society film which is so hypocritical that I feel disturbing as well. The problem is not about the political correctness, it’s about the systematic sexism that makes some people think it’s ok to watch this film as a guilty pleasure.⠀

It’s not a pleasure but guilty indeed.⠀

For people who are saying: Russell Crowe is back to save the cinema, I also have something to say: some films are meant to be experienced on the big screen and worth our waiting, some are not. Normally, “Unhinged” is the latter. This forgettable, formulaic B-movie should go straight to VOD instead of dominating box office right now…what a strange time!
