…in which I review of a movie deserves its woeful IMDB rating.
[Originally my criteria was a film was considered not good if it had a rating below 50% and I’ll stick to that.]
ETA: I watched this in 2020…or 2021? I just didn’t post it. Luckily for you, I’m trying to blog more!
ETA 2: I wrote the previous ETA on 6th April and I STILL didn’t post it. Third time is the charm.
After a confrontation with an unstable man at an intersection, a woman becomes the target of his rage.
I found the concept of this movie interesting, particular the social commentary it comes with. We open with Russell Crowe arguing with an unseen woman and leaving a house. The house then blows up. So, we know he’s a little loco already. Cool. Next we’re with the Mom (I don’t know her name, and I don’t think it’s important). Mom is going through a divorce. She lives with her brother and his girlfriend, and her young son.
They’re running late for school. Her son is quite sassy about it too, which irked me. Like, she knows she’s late, kid. Chill. Anyway, they get stuck in traffic. Son asks to use her phone and drops a nice bit of foreshadowing.
“No pass code? That’s dangerous!”
Is it, though? We will find out!
Fast forward to a green light and Mom honks aggressively when Russell Crowe doesn’t move. He then drives alongside them and motions for Son to roll down the window. Son obliges. Apparently, no pass code is dangerous. Rolling down the car window for angry man is fine.
