About the Movie
Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) awakens after a car accident in Berlin to discover that his wife (January Jones) suddenly doesn't recognize him and another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity. Ignored by disbelieving authorities and hunted by assassins, he finds himself alone, tired, and on the run. On his own in a strange country, Martin seeks aid from an unlikely and reluctant source (Diane Kruger) as he plunges headlong into a deadly mystery that will force him to question his sanity, his identity, and just how far he's willing to go to uncover the truth.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Neeson's comforting intelligence (and a marvelous turn by Bruno Ganz as an ailing former member of the East German secret police), are not enough to prevent the film from choking on obviousness and directorial fumbling.
Rotten: For about an hour or so, "Unknown" is intriguing.
Rotten: The snow and haze that Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra keeps pumping into the street scenes seem to have drifted into the script as well.
Fresh: Unknown" obviously knows its limitations, and it doesn't bother to rise above them. It just keeps throwing the punches the audience wants and expects. It won't cure world hunger, but chances are it will sell a lot of popcorn.
this movie was pretty good it was basically like another bourne identity movie. but i think bourne identity is a better movie than this.
Could of been better
This movie could of been better than it was. I think it went to crazy with the story line and what was going on.
This was basically Bourne Identity with a different title. Which in itself isn't a terrible thing, just don't expect anything really original...Overall, If your a Liam Neeson fan looking for a good action/adventure flick, you probably won't be too dissapointed.
