Its scary that people can actually play with your mind like this! (by thekyles99)
I am now thinking that you cannot lose when putting your hard earned cash down on a movie starring Liam Neeson! When he first started doing leads in flicks i was only used to his character work and so i unfairly labelled him. He seems to bring it every time much like Harrison Ford used to I often compare the two, not looks wise but just their choices are very similar when it comes to their choices in dramatic thriller scripts. Jaume Collet-Serra has the directing duties here known for Orphan, House Of Wax and he brings us the story of one man's plight to restore his identity amongst <more>
many obstacles. Apon arriving in Berlin Germany, Dr. Martin Harris Neeson and his wife Liz January Jones go to check into a hotel, just as they are entering the hotel, Martin acknowledges the fact that his briefcase with all his passports and various items of importance has been left behind at the airport without notifying Liz of the fact he jumps into a cab in a rush effort to return to the airport to collect it. Along the way there the cab he is in becomes involved in a accident. Dr. Harris is rushed to the hospital where he awakes 4 days later with a splitting headache but all the same he rushes out of the hospital in a bid to get back to his who by now should be dealing in 3 degrees of hysteria He arrives back at the hotel only to have his wife not know who he is and she is accompanied by another man Dr. Martin Harris! Will the real Dr Harris stand up seems to be the basis to this storyline as we spend the rest of the time as Liam Tries to prove he is who he is. Another flick featuring loads of plot twists and turns. I am beginning to slowly fall in love with Hollywood again

going nuts, or is there a conspiracy going on here? A very solid thriller, that is intense has it goes on, keeps building to an awesome climax. Performances by Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones and Aiden Quinn don't disappoint. If you are looking for a thriller that tops Taken 2008 a little, then give Unknown a look.
Rather scary but definitely not bad. (by umu-t-urhan)
***May Contain Spoilers*** I saw this movie with 2 of my friends, and while I was fully enjoying both acting and the story, I couldn't ignore what my friends had to say. They stated that they didn't enjoy acting, and that they believed the story changed very quickly making it hard to fallow also weakening the storyline.Maybe due to their influence on me, or maybe I really did have a lot of questions on my mind. Some parts especially when Dr. Martin Harris finds his "wife" at the hotel for the first time after the accident I thought such actors could do better. Only to <more>
realize at the end that I was too quick to judge. I believe focusing throughout the movie is really important in this case and if you do manage to get to the end I'm sure everything will be much clear to you as it became for me and that you'll enjoy the movie as much as I did...
Not a bad action/drama - a good time at the movies (by socrates99)
It's one thing to be told not to think too hard about what you're about to see, it's another to be helped enormously in that task by a skilled director employing equally skilled actors. All the principals here are in top notch form and, though I enjoy trying to measure how much license was taken by a screenplay, this film never once made me feel cheated or resentful.Is it a brilliant film? Probably not, but it's devilishly entertaining. The action scenes here are matched by the quiet drama scenes and that's unusual. I don't really think either sex can really claim it <more>
entirely.The director's done a very good job of creating the right mood and telling the story in such a way that the actors can do their work, unimpeded by unrealistic run ups to their scenes. This movie made me feel as if I've just visited Berlin much more effectively than any other European based movie I can think of and that alone is worth the price of admission.
An ingenious script that echoes concepts, plotting, pace and intrigue from mysteries such as Nowhere Man, Frantic and The Bourne Identity. Once again, Liam Neeson shows his prowess in choosing projects of high interest and executes a performance that connects well with his audience.To put this in context, mystery thrillers are very hard to pull off anymore. Filmmakers must create layers of mysteries that the audience cannot easily second guess, peel them back one by one to reveal answers that themselves sometimes turn into mysteries later, and resolve all of them in 2 hours without seeming <more>
contrived or obvious. To make it more challenging, the characters must be empathetic, the action sequences satisfying, the pace agreeable, the dialog convincing, and the setting compelling.Director Jaume Collet-Serra has pulled it off again, following on the heels of another successful thriller, Orphan. This director is a rising star.
Good thriller, but don't go in expecting more than Taken. (by wildphoenix960)
Movie was great, but I think a few things fell a little short.Like another reviewer, dialog did not match up with what was going on at some parts. Not that it made or break the movie. Especially one part where he says, "I remember how to kill you". Which is said on the trailer of the movie, then he says a-hole after it and it becomes sometimes notttttt so cool to say and kinda made me want to laugh.Action was great for when it happened, which was NOT the whole movie as somebody else said in their review. It starts kind of slow, but builds up towards middle/ending. Expected a little <more>
more from the ending because previous action scenes were better, but it was still good.Probably one of the few things I did not like about this movie was the camera work. During fast paced scenes and some action scenes it was kinda all over and was hard to follow the characters. The action that I did catch was great though.It has more of a story and big twist than Taken. Though there is going to be a Taken 2, I would suggest just comparing this to Bournes a little more with a fighting style of Taken. Good movie and worth the money. 8/10 because I only see myself watching it a few times on DVD same with Taken and Bourne .
An effective thriller with a good twist in the ending. Not since The Sixth Sense has a movie given me such a surprise at its ending. Liam Nieson keeps your attention fixed on the action throughout the movie, although some of his lines did not match the scenes or his character. If someone is trying to kill you, maybe some emotion would be shown. The car accident at the beginning is very realistic and makes Liams amnesia credible. The car chase scenes in the movie will also keep the action buffs happy, although the black car driven by the assassin is a bit too corny to believe . Bruno Ganz as <more>
an aging former Stasi agent gives a stand-out performance and Diane Kruger supports Nieson without the usual Hollywood theme of girl following for hero. Maybe its because Nieson is old enough to be her father. This film is no masterpiece but if your looking for a couple of hours entertainment with an interesting ending this will fit the bill.
Despite his age, Neeson still has it in him (by jdkraus)
Multiple people have compared this to Neeson's 2008 release of "Taken." Both have a similar concept; Liam goes on a fast-paced journey to retrieve something special that has been taken from him. This time it is not his daughter; it is his mind. Unlike "Taken," "Unknown" is more of a suspense mystery than an action flick. There are some chases and fight scenes, but that is not the main focus. The movie's plot is focus and it is unique for it is unpredictable. We are confused like Neeson's character and there are times we don't know if he will <more>
succeed. There are multiple twists and unlike most mystery thrillers, it took me more than half through the film to figure it all out. In short, "Unknown" is a fairly decent mystery thriller. Good performances. Good story for a mystery. Good music. Good cinematographyâ€”I particularly like the whole gray, dreary atmosphere that reflects the film's location's bleak weather. Good twists. Good suspenseâ€” the sound mixers must've had a kick in adding emphasis on sound effects to startle the audience. The one thing I will note is that Liam Neeson is really showing his age. This is not necessarily a bad thing; on the contrary, it helps his character out. It gets tiresome that Hollywood always uses the generic 30-something year old actor with smashing abs who is tossed into a terrible situation. It is nice to see an aging actor play an upper middle-aged man who has perhaps lost his mind while running away from people trying to kill him. My rating: ***/****
Great Thriller with a Surprising Plot Point (by claudio_carvalho)
The researcher Dr. Martin Harris Liam Neeson and his wife Elizabeth Harris January Jones arrive in the airport of Berlin to participate in the Biotechnology Global Summit. When they take a cab to the Hotel Adlen in the Central Berlin, the taxi driver forgets his briefcase in the kart. While Liz is in the check-in, Martin discovers that his briefcase is missing and he immediately takes a cab back to the airport. During the route, there is an accident and the taxi fall off the bridge into the river, but the driver Gina Diane Kruger rescues Martin and saves him. Martin awakes in the <more>
hospital after four days in coma and his Dr. Farge Karl Markovics advises him to stay in the hospital since he could be deluded due to his trauma on the head. However, Martin forces the doctor to discharge him and he goes to the hotel. Without any document, Martin is hold by the security of the hotel; but he sees Liz in the hall and the chief of security agrees to go with him to meet his wife. However, she tells that she does not know him; further, she presents her husband, Dr. Martin Harris, to them. Martin goes to the police and tells that the other man is an impersonator. But Martin can not prove who he is since he has no documents and it is Thanksgiving in North America and he can not locate his old friend Dr. Rodney Cole Frank Langella . Without any credibility, Martin is forced to return to the hospital; but when he is attacked by a stranger the kills his Nurse Gretchen Erfurt Eva LÃ¶bau , Martin realizes that he is involved in a huge conspiracy and nobody believes on him."Unknown" is another great thriller with Liam Neeson with a surprising plot point. The intriguing story seems to have flaws, but when the mystery is solved, everything has an explanation. Everything works in the thriller: performances, cinematography, music score and specially the twist. The fifty-nine year-old Liam Neeson is impressively youthful and fits perfectly to the role of a man that loses part of his recollections, and the gorgeous Diane Kruger is excellent as usual. Despite their difference of ages, they are are convincing as a couple. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Desconhecido" "Unknown"
