Reviews

Psychological thriller about five men with no memory. Five men wake up together in a mysterious warehouse and no recollection of anything at all. All signs point to their having been involved in something illicit - one of them is tied to a chair and there are obvious signs of struggle everywhere. Are the ones who're not tied up captors and the tied ones victims? Nobody can say but it's certain that they need each other to get out of this mess. Intrigue and double-cross unfold as a series of flashbacks and scenes of a worried wife (Bridget Moynahan) waiting for news fill in the details. The fairly hefty ensemble cast includes Joe Pantoliano, Peter Stormare, Greg Kinnear and Jim Caviezel.

This film's intriguing concept puts it in the mould of films such as Bryan Singer's The Usual Suspects (BFI Modern Classics) although it is not as good as that 90s classic. Secrets and deception, trust and mistrust, identity and human nature; these ideas are all explored in the movie, and through strong performances from the likes of Jim Caviezel and Joe Pantoliano, the film does so with style and power. At around 80 minutes in duration the film doesn't outstay its welcome either, and is ultimately a solid and entertaining thriller.

Unknown

To start off i'll say that I am a big fan of Jim Caviezel but i will try not let that get in the way of this review.

This film was on my list of films to buy which was recommended to me through amazon and i have heard that it is very similar to films such as Memento and Usual Suspects (which i really enjoyed) and bassically if you use the two main plot devices of those films you would of created the theme of this film Unknown.

The main theme of this film is that they have all lost there memory in a warehouse where obviously something big has happened and soon begin to work out that some of them are kidnappers and some of them hostages which creates a tense atmosphere of conspiracy and friendship.

This is a great film which plays with your mind and you soon get to know the characters straight away through there personality of being locked away in this warehouse, one character you'll begin to hate but also laugh at a few times is the man who is bound up in his chair (Didnt have a name) he is obviously one of those characters that you usually have to have that doesnt mix well with the group and causes many more problems in a tough situation.

Jim Caviezel's character is the lead in this film and does a great job at playing a man who does not know who he is, but slowly builds up his memory towards the end, giving us memorys on who his character is, (is he good or bad?). His character has a rough start with the other characters in the film as he is the one pursued by the others as the lier but soon all group together to try and escape the warehouse.

I will add a second review of Unknown that clearly stands on the other side of the fence, because I liked the movie very much:

Unknown is an excellent thriller that succeeded in keeping me guessing to the end. It is also very affecting at a gut level. The film opens to find James Caviezel the first of five men to revive from a drugged unconsciousness. He experiences confusion, then shock, and finally pure panic as he comprehends the danger he is in. He is locked inside a filthy factory/meth lab. He sees an unconscious stranger tied to a chair. Another lies face down and bloody with a broken nose, and another is hanging by one handcuffed arm from an upstairs railing, a gunshot wound in his shoulder. He finds two chairs, one broken, with a length of rope that has been severed. His memory is completely gone. He has no idea who he is and it is terrifying. As each man recovers consciousness they fight, blame and quickly realize that two of them are victims and the others are kidnappers -- but who is who? And then there is the sinister phone call and we learn that some really bad guys are returning from some terrible mission. Whether criminal or victim before, these five men agree they now must work together to survive, with "Jean Jacket" (Caviezel) and "Rancher Shirt" (in an admirable performance by Barry Pepper) leading by example.

This film benefited from the great ensemble acting of its five leads who, in addition to Jim Caviezel and Barry Pepper, include Greg Kinnear, Jeremy Sisto and Joe Pantoliano. The extended cast members are also credible and sustain the edge. Bridget Moynahan, the only female with a significant role in this gritty drama, stands out as the wife of one of the victims.

Aside from the odd gap in logic and a style cribbed somewhat from such films as Saw and Memento,this is a compact(85 mins)and well drawn ensemble piece.
Five men wake up in a secure warehouse in the desert all unable to comprehend just why they are there and who of the others they can trust.Fragments of their recent past flit through their consciousness but is it fact or fiction?
Some characters get backstory,some don't but the script nevertheless draws you in.Performances are solid throughout from a pretty good cast- Jim Cavaziel and Greg Kinnear in particular-Simon Brand's direction stays this side of overbearing and Angelo Milli's haunting score is appropriately tense.
Derivative for sure but put up against Saw(a one trick pony and c*** acting to boot)this stands up pretty well for those who like their thrills through realistic tension and not just by shocks for the simple minded.

What an unusual story - really had no idea where this was going, right to the end and even then was still a bit confusedl However, this is the type of flim Jim Caviezel fans expect from him.
