After a car accident, Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) wakes up in a hospital with a little knowledge of how he came there and who is he exactly. "Unknown" is a drama-thriller movie of searching oneself's identity. This film has a clear, smooth and smart twist. The cast, for me, performed just right. However, I was looking for more action, that without a break of momentum and a lot of tensions. Overall, a good watch.

The No Signal cellphone message (to cover up lazy plotting) is taken to extremes here - 'here' being the center of Berlin. That's at the outset so at least you get prepared for the nonsense that follows. Liam Neeson reprises his 'man-on-a-mission' schtick and January ('Betty Draper') Jones looks as lovely present day as she does on Madison Avenue. Despite their efforts, one hopes this ugly looking film lives up to its title.

Watching this film, you might be reminded of several others: Frantic, any Bourne film, etc. Even the ending is a little too Jason Bourne-ish. The saving grace is that the setup is intriguing (a man wakes up from an accident to learn someone else is him) and the casting is pretty good - Neeson continues his run as an action hero and Kruger is more than capable as his sidekick who gets drawn into the mystery. In the end, there's not a lot of originality here, but it's a good and entertaining ride.

The mystery drives the film forward, with growing suspense and the occasional jolting action moment. It all leads to a beat-em-up finish. The truth that is revealed is well deserved and actually plausible.
