I forgot Unknown by the time I got to the car; it was a real act of will to call it up again long enough to review it, and I'm already forgetting it again. Full Review
3.5 stars out of 5 -- Jaume Collet-Serra's tidy, moody thriller ticks along at a fast pace -- like the Autobahn, it's pure Teutonic efficiency.
UNKNOWN is very much in the tradition of smooth Continental entertainments that expertly deliver on audience expectations....UNKNOWN is consistently albeit genteelly thrilling...
Los Angeles Times
The director Jaume Collet-Serra knows is way around multilane roadways, and he and his stunt team squeeze in a few slick car chases...
New York Times
Preposterous? Sure. But within the larger movie universe, I can accept the purported reality. It's just too entertaining not to. Full Review
San Diego Entertainer
Rating: 2/5 -- With little going for it and a laughable script, Unknown coasts along at a fast enough pace to justify the 113 minute runtime. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- A nifty final twist, but it is so joyless and heavy-handed I found it impossible to like. Full Review
Liam Neeson headlines this thriller about a prominent doctor on a business trip to Germany when he awakens from a coma to find that another man has stolen his identity and taken over his life. Dr. Martin Harris (Neeson) has just arrived in Berlin to deliver an important presentation when he realizes that his briefcase has gone missing, and leaves his wife, Elizabeth (January Jones), at their hotel to try and retrieve it. During his cab ride back to the airport, however, a serious car accident lands Dr. Harris in the hospital, where he lies in a coma for four days. Upon awakening, Dr. Harris is horrified to discover that every relic of his identity has been completely erased. His shock is soon compounded when, upon seeking out his wife at a lavish party, another man (Aidan Quinn) appears by her side claiming to be the real Dr. Martin Harris, and requests that hotel security protect them from the unstable "imposter." Facing total denial from everyone he turns to, Dr. Harris gets a tip from a sympathetic nurse to seek out the assistance of Ernst Jürgen (Bruno Ganz), the former head of the German Secret Police, who implores him to track down Gina (Diane Kruger), the illegal immigrant taxi driver who narrowly saved his life, and may hold the answers to all of his questions. Now, the closer Dr. Harris gets to solving the mystery, the greater the danger becomes until the astonishing truth is revealed, plunging him into a desperate race against time.
