Director: Jaume Collet-Serra
Liam Neeson elevates the proceedings considerably, but Unknown is ultimately too derivative -- and implausible -- to take advantage of its intriguing premise.
Scene by scene, the movie is clunky and laughable, but it's certainly never dull.
A nifty final twist, but it is so joyless and heavy-handed I found it impossible to like. | Full Review...
There are holes in the plot, but the film skips over them.
Enjoy it and then forget it...
