Unknown, Movie Review 2011

Unknown

2011, ****, R

Starring: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, Frank Langella

Liam Neeson does NOT dissapoint in his new action-thriller film. "Unknown," is one thrill ride that you will never forget. It is one of these movies where the main character is caught in a situation, in this case mistaken identity, due to memory loss after a horrific car crash into a river.

You tend to believe that the storyline you are watching is the truth, but you are then told to believe otherwise. Neeson and his "wife" have just arrived in Paris, France at a swanky hotel for a conference. Supposedly, he is a scientist attending a conference and you think he might have some important information to tell the world.

However, just as they are checking into their room for the evening, Neeson steps out of the hotel to head outside to see if he can catch up with the baggage he forgot in the cab they just arrived in. In a matter of minutes, the cab he just got in, is in a car accident, and Diane Kruger, is the cabbie.

They plunge off a bridge into a river, and Kruger is able to get out of the sunked Mercedes cab, and manages to get Neeson out. The paramedics arrive, and save his life. When he wakes in the hospital after being in a coma for 4 days, he has NO CLUE who he is. When he remembers his name, they cannot track down his wife, nor does he remember why he is in Paris.

From there, he tries to unveil the mystery of why no one knows who he is, once he finds the hotel, and his wife, things being to get really strange. His own wife acts like theyve never met, and were never married, and shes with another man.

People start to try and kill him; however he does get Diane Kruger on his side, and help him figure out why he is constantly being targeted, and who he really is, and what he came to Paris for.

CHECK THIS ONE OUT, YOU'LL LOVE IT! This is a must buy film.

      This was almost like a Hitchcock film which I really enjoyed because that hasn't been done in a while in a modern film. It was a little unbelievable but all in all it was a good escapist flick. Great hub.

      Yeah this film had y head spinning it has so many twists in it, I must admit that I had no idea how the film was gonna end until the guy came to the Old Spys house, then it all clicked for me.

      I agree this is a must own and I would say THE BEST SPY MOVIE EVER.
