Usually during a movie when I am left wondering what in the world is going on, having no clue who that guy is or why he’s suspiciously following that other guy, I get frustrated. But Unknown was definitely a good kind of confusing.
Unknown follows Martin Harris (Liam Neeson), a scientist who is involved in a car wreck while in Berlin. When he awakes from a coma four days later, his wife claims to never have met him, and Harris is all alone in a strange city, with no passport, cellphone and no one to turn to.
The movie was jam-packed with action, to say the least, so it didn’t drag. And with a car crash right off the bat, it’s safe to say that it caught my attention.
In addition to action, the movie was full of plot twists and turns. A couple of times, my jaw even dropped during those never-saw-that-one-coming moments. Even though I was lost during about three-fourths of the movie, I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the screen. All of the surprises in the movie were so perfectly placed and interwoven that it became one of the most irresistible thrillers that I have seen in quite awhile.
