Product Description

Product Description

Unknown (BD)

Amazon.ca

The surprise hit Taken, from 2008, contained a number of red meat pleasures, but chief among them was Liam Neeson's reinvention as an action hero, turning his trademark wounded brusqueness and gentle-giant physique towards new, head-clunking avenues. Despite an ad campaign that makes it appear to be a direct action-packed continuation of that earlier film, Unknown proves to be a somewhat different creature--a sleek mystery that occasionally gives in to temptation and lets its hulking star call down the righteous thunder. Based on a novel by Didier Van Cauwelaert, the story follows a mild-mannered botanist in Berlin with his wife (Mad Men's January Jones) for a mysterious scientific conference. After a freak car accident, he wakes up in the hospital with scrambled memories, missing identification, and--most ominously--someone else claiming to be him. Director Jaume Collet-Serra, previously responsible for the admirably berserko Orphan, handles the early paranoiac cloak-and-dagger passages with aplomb (and delivers one quick beaut of a car chase), but proves less sure-footed when the story drifts towards more conventional Bourne-style punch-ups. Thankfully, Neeson does a fine job keeping things grounded whenever the narrative starts to wander, with able support from Diane Kruger as a cab driver unwillingly along for the ride. There's the germ of a genuinely intriguing, thoughtful thriller inside Unknown--particularly during a superbly minimalist scene between supporting cast members Frank Langella and Bruno Ganz--but it mostly seems content to stay within the realm of a high-pedigreed, reasonably taut action film. Which isn't all that bad of a thing, really. --Andrew Wright

The Film 4/5

Unknown's plot is extremely simple once you know a key piece of information, but that's not revealed until late in the movie. As a result, you'll find yourself confused and having to guess what's really going on. On first viewing, Unknown is full of mystery and puts the viewer in the position of the main protagonist, Martin Harris (Neeson). Like Memento, the story keeps letting us see events in a new context and their meaning changes as a result.

Harris flies into Berlin with wife Liz (Jones) for a biotechnology conference. He's one of the speakers. While getting into a taxi at the airport, he leaves behind a briefcase containing his passport and vital documents. Does that seem like the act of a man with the supposed intelligence of Harris? He notices that it's missing when they arrive at the hotel and jumps into another taxi while his wife checks in. There's no signal for his phone (really) so he can't explain his actions.

The taxi is involved in an accident and plunges into a river. The driver, Gina (Kruger), pulls him out and then runs off leaving him in the hands of the medics.

Unknown was a very well written script that kept me intrigued, throughout. The viewer starts off thinking the best of the main character, then realisations start to come together. Though I have seen elements of this type of plot before, this one absolutely kept me guessing and working on trying to figure things out.

Nicely done. Good action thrown in to keep the film exciting. It definitely has a similar feel to the Bourne Legacy.

Highly recommended. Very exciting viewing for a Friday Night!

This one has you guessing until the very end. Liam Neeson is a man who can't remember who he is, and what he does remember isn't validated by the ones he thinks he knows! Every step is more confusing as the one before and you keep thinking "who is this man". I can't say more or I will give away the ending, just let me say by the end you aren't even sure if the truth is the truth! This one is worth the watch. 5 stars for Liam and "Unknown".

This movie is one of the bests of Liam Neeson ! As of lately, he made Non-Stop (2014), with the same director. And you can clearly see why Neeson is Jaume Collet-Serra's favorite. The guy know exactly how to play theses kind of roles with lot of mystery and intrigue. Very good cast, also Diane Kruger (Troy), January Jones (Seeking Justice) and Aidan Quinn (Legends of the Fall). Highly recommended !! 8,5/10

By THE MOVIE GUY HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 8 2015
Format: DVD
Along with his wife, Liam Neeson is in Berlin for a biotech conference. He forgets his briefcase at the airport and realizes this when they arrive at the hotel. He takes a cab ride back to the airport to retrieve the briefcase and has an accident along the way. Four days later he awakens from his coma, after being dead for 7 minutes. He has no ID.

He goes to the hotel where he sees his wife, except she is with a man whp has the same name as his (Martin Harris) and he claims that he is her husband and his wife likewise makes the same claim! At this point I was divided as to what is going on. Is this a Twilight Zone where a guy goes to an alternate reality? Maybe a "Dark City" experiment. Is this an elaborate hoax? If so why is his wife a part of it? Maybe they decided to remake Hauser's Memory (am I showing my age?) Liam contacts the underground in Berlin to help him find out what is going on.

The acting was good, as expected. The chase and action scenes were about a C+. It could have used some good swagger music, which seems to be the norm in modern movies.

No sex or nudity. Thank you Frank Langella for keeping your pants on.

We were half expecting another formulaic cliché ridden, honest-man-wronged Hollywood conspiracy thriller clone. Thankfully, we were more than half wrong. Despite ticking all of the genre boxes and despite a more than passing nod towards The Long Kiss Goodnight, this film completely fails to disappoint. Neeson is, of course, brilliant, the plot twists and turns most satisfactorily and there is never a dull moment even after you've worked out what's going on. In spite of being relatively unknown, Jaume Collet-Serra directs with a firm grip on suspense worthy of Bruckheimer or Scott so the film never runs out of steam. A Taken it is not, nor is it anywhere near a Bourne, but it is nonetheless a cleverly constructed and entertaining addition to the conspiracy thriller genre.
