Unknown

Take back your life.


Unknown
A scientist and his wife arrive in Germany for a conference. He forgets his briefcase at the airport, and immediately goes back to look for it (the eternal optimist!). Unfortunately he is involved in an accident en route, and wakes up after four days, in hospital. Upon returning to his hotel, his wife claims to not recognise him, and she has a new husband claiming to be him. Is he going crazy, or is there something much bigger and more dangerous going on?...

Box Office
Amy Nicholson quote iconJaume Collet-Serra's tidy, moody thriller ticks along at a fast pace — like the Autobahn, it's pure Teutonic efficiency.
13
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconUnknown isn't a really bad movie, just an absurd one.
10
eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconThat the script's underlying theme of identity crisis goes underdeveloped in favour of some truly ridiculous plot developments scarcely matters in light of such confident filmmaking.
15
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconYes, Unknown is preposterous. That in and of itself is not a reason to avoid the movie. The problems lie in the way the absurdity is presented and the manner in which the screenplay resolves once the ''truth'' is revealed.
10
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconIgnore the pileup of implausibilities and Unknown becomes a diabolically entertaining con game. Does it jerk you around? Yes. Suck it up. The ride's worth it.
10
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconFeaturing a number of decent (but not plentiful enough) action and fight sequences, some good supporting performances and the reassuring notion that a nearly 60-year-old actor can be considered an action star, Unknown isn't awful, but it's not as good as it might have been.

Tomatometer quote iconLiam Neeson elevates the proceedings considerably, but Unknown is ultimately too derivative -- and implausible -- to take advantage of its intriguing premise.
