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.

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.

Format: DVD
In Unknown, Liam Neeson's character arrives in Berlin as a biochemist with his beautiful wife for a conference. When he leaves his briefcase behind at the airport he has to return to collect it while she checks in at the hotel. But on the way he has a terrifying road accident which leaves him in a coma for four days. When he wakes up and tries to return to the conference, another man has taken his place and his wife denies that she knows him.

If this sounds almost exactly like the premise of the Harrison Ford film Frantic [1988], it's because it pretty much is. Although the details are changed, it plays on exactly the same fears as a professional man, used to having his word trusted, is separated from his wife in a foreign city and, when he finally catches up with her, she denies their relationship. At this point, Ford/Neeson doubts his own sanity, and we do too.

It's not just the similarity of plot -- Neeson is a shoe-in as the next Harrison Ford, playing stressed middle-aged professionals out of their depth in a world of violence.

Just as in Frantic, Neeson's character meets an attractive girl from the wrong end of the tracks who helps him, and is thus herself drawn into the terrifying, life threatening ordeal.

So far so ok -- the production values are better in this film, the scripting is tighter, and the action is swifter and more violent. But just when you are thinking that this really is just a remake, it seems to slip a gear, and suddenly we are in a world which is more or less the opposite of Frantic. This is because there's a hidden change in the premise which you don't discover until two-thirds of the way through.

Format: DVD
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.

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.

A biochemist, Dr. Martin Harris, and his wife arrive in Berlin for a conference at which a scientist and his controversial Arab bankroller will announce breakthrough research. While his wife checks into the hotel, Harris grabs a cab to return to the airport for his briefcase, left at the curb. En route, an auto accident puts him in a coma from which he awakes four days later without identification and with gaps in his memory. He goes to the hotel: his wife refuses to recognize him and another man has claimed his identity. With help from a nurse, the cab driver who crashed him, a retired Stasi agent (played by the excellent Bruno Ganz), and an academic friend, he tries to unravel what's going on. Is the answer in the briefcase?

Well, yes - but that's as far as I'm going. Far removed from Ronin, where you spend the whole movie anxiously waiting to find out what's in the case but ultimately not doing so, we do find out what's in the case here. It's a real blast. The movie takes you on a journey with Harris as he desperately tries to prove, and find out, who he is. Just when you think he's going to expose the identity thief and reclaim his life the climactic savage twist is dropped in and you're left sitting there thinking, "Where the heck did that come from?"

Groovy!
