Unknown (2011)


Director: Jaume Collet-Serra
Starring: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones, others.
Release Date: February 17, 2011 (UAE)

Unknown, a thriller set in Germany, starts with an interesting premise but quickly spirals downwards to B-movie shoddiness. Predictable and far-fetched, it also makes convenient use of force majeure to set up and resolve situations that the writers were not creative enough to tackle. Liam Neeson though commands a formidable screen presence and is one of the main reasons the movie does not completely fail.
