"Unthinkable" (Blu-ray) - Reviewed by John Johnson
Steven Arthur Younger (Sheen) releases a video stating that three nuclear weapons have been set to go off in undisclosed cities, and unless his terms are met, he will allow them to be detonated.
FBI Agen Helen Brody (Moss) is brought to a warehouse where she finds other officers, and Younger is seated in a separate room, tied to a chair, with a one-way mirror that allows the officers to view what is going on.
Helen discovers, to her horror, that Younger is being tortured. She objects, but as time begins to run out, she becomes more accepting as to what must be done to save millions of lives.
The officers are unable to get Younger to break, so they bring in a specialist, Henry Humphries (Jackson), who is about to unleash his own techniques of breaking Younger.
The methods Henry uses are "Unthinkable", and there is as much screaming and yelling in the outer room where the officers are objecting, as there is in the room where Humphries proceeds to dissect Younger's fingers. But, now there are only hours before detonation. Does the Unthinkable become the Acceptable and the Necessary?
