Sounds brutal, cruel and heartbreaking - why would someone want to track it down?

More details -

"I think the wife had a red dress on and the detective cop came down these steps and she was tied up I think with a bomb on her and the bad guy was on a cell phone talking to the cop. He explained the only way he could save all these other people was to shoot his wife. So he is crying trying not to let her see and is just going nuts and then tells his wife its going to be ok they just have to turn the light off. Thank you so much for trying to help lol, its like getting a song in your head and you can't think of the name. It was a really good movie believe it or not just can't remember anything but that part because I was watching it with my husband and he was like "I could do it" lol scared me a little. Maybe Hugh Jackman are someone good like that was the detective."

Sounds a bit like the movie Blown Away, but I don't remember this scene exactly.

I've never even heard of The Mad Bomber. Do you think that's it?

This is a hard one. So is it the Mad Bomber? There is a similar scene in The Box when a guy has to shoot his wife with one shot and kill her to save their son of a lifetime of being def and blind. The Box is a great movie!!

Don't think it is The Mad Bomber. Good call on The Box. I know the scene you mean. Her description doesn't quite match but she did say (new information):

"I think it was made in the last couple of years."

I'll suggest it to her.
