Liam Neeson has become a staple in doing these kinds of thrillers. It is no doubt that Neeson is one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood, but in doing the same role over and over again, it certainly doesn’t give him much credibility. Still, Unknown is a decent thriller and even manages to thrill and engage the audience in the first half, before dying off in the 2nd quadrant. It is unfortunate as the director and scriptwriter alike, both prefer shortcuts and explosions, rather than focusing on the story and characters. Average movie and probably something we have all seen before…
Neo rates it 6/10,
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.
