Netflix Viewers Have One Complaint About Sandra Bullock’s The Unforgivable


Netflix Viewers Have One Complaint About Sandra Bullock’s The Unforgivable

Although Sandra Bullock's new Netflix movie has been described as 'a must watch', a number of viewers have taken to social media to share one complaint they have about the flick. You can watch the trailer here:


The Unforgivable stars Bullock as Ruth Slater, a woman recently released from prison for murder who is attempting to put her life back together and find her younger sister after 20 years locked up.

An official synopsis reads: "Released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime, Ruth Slater (Bullock) re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past.

"Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, her only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind."

If the plot sounds familiar, it's because it's based on the British mini-series Unforgiven, which starred Suranne Jones and Will Mellor and was released in 2009.

The movie, which also stars Jon Bernthal and Viola Davis, landed on Netflix on 10 December and viewers have been raving about it already.

However, there's one thing that people aren't too happy about - that ending.

Without giving away any spoilers, some have slammed the conclusion of the film, calling it 'the worst ending'.

One viewer wrote: "Whoever created the movie The Unforgivable on Netflix is messed up - what a terrible ending.

"All that suspense and plot twist for a 30-second hug at the end."

A second person fumed: "The Unforgivable has the worst ending to a film of all time."

"The Unforgivable is a good movie, but you definitely need to pay full attention," wrote a third.

"I just wish the ending could have been a little more detailed with them interacting."

Of course, not everyone shared this critique, including this fan who wrote: "The Unforgivable on Netflix is a must watch.

"As usual, Sandra Bullock is amazing. It's a great movie from beginning to the end."

While preparing for the role, Bullock apparently met with women who were in jail and says the experience inspired her to get a tattoo and helped her be a better mum.

She told Extra: "One of my tattoos was in honour of one of the women that I got to interview that helped me with insight to my daughter.

"She, too, went through the foster care system and there was something that was similar and she says, 'Oh, my God, that happened to me. That's who I was.'

"I got home and I go, 'How is it that I went there to get her story, and I left there being a better parent because of the gift that she gave me?'"

The Unforgivable is available to stream on Netflix now.
