Movie Reviews

Movie Review from

Arriving in Berlin, Biochemist Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) is in a cab accident. When he emerges from a coma, his wife (January Jones) claims another man (Aidan Quinn) is him. Aided by a Bosnian cabbie (Diane Kruger) and an ex-Stasi private eye (Bruno Ganz) and pursued by killers, Martin tries to understand. Unknown pulls a revelation every half-hour which throws all you thought you knew up in the air — things that seem plot-holes make sense later, but things which seem straightforward become demented contrivances.

Thanks to 2008's Taken, Liam Neeson has found himself rebranded as a fiftysomething action badass for the 21st Century. But where that Luc Besson production hit its target via cartoonishly kinetic bullet-play and Neeson's tongue-in-cheek turn, this wronged man/amnesiac/conspiracy thriller takes itself far too seriously. Which is a shame, given the set-up's juicy promise. Shortly after US bio-technologist Dr Martin Harris (Neeson) arrives at a Berlin hotel with wife Liz (January Jones) for a science conference, he realises he's left his briefcase at the airport.

In Unknown, a generic conspiracy thriller from director Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan, House of Wax), the protagonist, played by Liam Neeson, emerges from a four-day coma to find himself in the midst of a kind of reverse-identity crisis: He's fairly certain who he is, but everyone else around him seems to have forgotten, as if they've contracted a kind of collective amnesia. The filmmakers hope dearly that this amnesia will extend to the audience, that you won't remember the Bourne trilogy, The Fugitive, or any number of other thrillers from which Unknown borrows heavily.

Here is the week's second conspiracy thriller, one with a nifty final twist, but it is so joyless and heavy-handed I found it impossible to like. Liam Neeson and January Jones play a married couple who go to Berlin for a scientific conference. A car wreck puts Neeson in a coma; he awakes to find that a different man has taken over his identity, his job and indeed his wife. He panics, rants and raves, but no one believes him. What's going on? It's all promising stuff with an ingenious ending.

A couple of years ago Liam Neeson hit the sleepy month of January with a cattle prod called Taken. That movie was totally awesome, and Unknown looks like it was made in an attempt to get lightning to strike twice (which is why my friends and I have been lovingly referring to it as TAKENER). I went into it with high hopes, because it is truly stunning to see Liam Neeson handling knives and doing roundhouse kicks. Thankfully, I left satisfied, as the movie is a well-performed, well-directed thriller that kept me interested the entire time.

Roman Polanski didn't direct this tatty and delirious Euro-pudding, but he might have done, if force-fed the wrong kind of mushroom and reminded about his 1988 Harrison Ford lost-wife thriller, Frantic. Liam Neeson has the comparable role of a biotech scientist visiting Berlin for a conference, who mislays his passport, all proof of his identity, and the plot, in that order. His wife (January Jones, flubbing cool Hitchcock blonde duties) denies all knowledge.
