A man claiming to be Dr Martin Harris awakes in Berlin hospital with severe head injuries and very little knowledge as to how he got there. The doctors inform him that he has been in a coma for four days after surviving a near fatal car crash. Attempting to piece together the incidents leading up to the accident, he discovers that his wife no longer recognises him and another man has assumed his identity. Now the only thing standing in the way of him and the truth is a deadly team of trained assassins who will stop at nothing to have him killed. It’s time for Dr Harris to face his identity, his sanity and take back his life… by force.

Starring Liam Neeson (Taken, The A-Team), Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds, Troy) and January Jones (Mad Men, X-Men: First Class), Unknown is a gripping mystery pumped with visceral action and an explosive revelation around every twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neeson's run of great films continues! 9 Sep 2011
What is it with Liam Neeson these days? We had Batman Begins, Taken, A-Team - all great films. Now we have Unknown. Personally I'm not sure where the Taken comparisons come from. Ok, at its heart its a revenge movie but where our hero in Taken was an unstoppable force of vendetta filled, single minded power, here things are little more complicated.
Dr Martin Harris (Neeson) has to piece together his missing life in order to get his wife back. The action involved is more about his survival than his bloodthirsty vengeance as we see him try to overcome his difficulties in order to solve the mystery. He is aided by a young woman he meets on his adventure, set in Berlin, so this movie has more in common with Harrison Ford's 'Frantic' (remember that one?) than with Taken.
Things heat up later on in the film with an excellent plot twist that changes the game and I did not see coming (although there are a couple of clues if you look carefully).
Its slower pace help to build the characters and tension and the addition of Herr Jurgen the ex-spy help do this tremendously. I highly recommend this film as a solid, action filled mystery thriller.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but no Taken *may contain spoliers* 28 May 2011
By Cb1306
I must admit i approached this film with geat anticipation after the revelation of Liam Neeson's ass-kicking ability displayed in the excellent Taken.
And although big Liam holds top billing in both that is where the similarities end. That doesn't mean this is a bad film because its not, it has however been done before.
Man and wife check into a Berlin hotel for a science summit, man realises he has left a briefcase at the airport and jumps in a taxi to retrieve it. Taxi crashes, man wakes in hospital with partial amnesia, returns to the hotel to find wife with another man claiming to be her husband. So begins the game of cat & mouse.
The story is good, performances are too and the action is done very well once it starts but the story is reminiscent of films like Timebomb with Michael Biehn & more recently The Long Kiss Goodnight.
One to try before you buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unknown 20 Jun 2011
This action/thriller/mystery is a little far fetched to say the least but great fun non the less. Similar to {Taken 2008 also starring Neeson which is excellent} in many ways with the theme that anything can happen to a unassuming American "with a bad accent" in Europe" The action isn't amazing but decent enough with the main credit being drawn from the twist towards the end I won't give to much away but i found it more original than most movies I seen recently. I will say the one major unfeasible point is that after a bump on the head and short team memory loss Neeson's character had acquired a set of morals and desire to destroy his former friends colleagues. I finish by recommending this flick to those who liked taken or an action film with some thought put into the storyline however unlikely it maybe i was entertained throughout.
For a better action film set in Europe go watch Bourne for a better mystery thriller with misplaced character go watch shutter Island. If you like both of those titles I think you should find this movie more than watchable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The polar opposite of Taken 16 Mar 2012
Unknown was always going to draw comparisons with Taken, and in my opinion, unfairly; because although they share the same lead actor, the similarities end there.

In fact, the two films couldn't be more different.

Taken was an OK film in my opinion. I'd give it three stars. I found it pretty flat to be honest. The story line was boring and the action, although there was plenty of it, couldn't have been more run of the mill.

Taken is the exact polar opposite of Unknown.

Where Taken's story line was boring and simplistic, Unknown's was riveting. It was slow to build where as taken was in your face; and 'slowly' draws you in and keeps you guessing. I found myself very engaged in it.

And whereas Taken's action was non stop but mediocre, I found Unknown's to be sparse (at first) and very exciting when things boiled over.

I'm surprised by some of the harsh reviews for this film - but then reading some of them, I see that people either didn't watch the film to the end or are fans of Taken. Well, I'm sorry, but you can't comment on a plot until you know the twist and see the big picture, and if all you want is action, action, action and can't enjoy anything else you're a bit of a moron.

Unknown is an excellent espionage thriller, and I thought it worked very well. You might guess one of the twists by about a third of the way through, but you'll never see the whole 'big picture' right until the end. And isn't that just how films are meant to be...
