    Synopsis


    Unknown
    Liam Neeson headlines this thriller about a prominent doctor on a business trip to Germany when he awakens from a coma to find that another man has stolen his identity and taken over his life. Dr. Martin Harris (Neeson) has just arrived in Berlin to deliver an important presentation when he realizes that his briefcase has gone missing, and leaves his wife, Elizabeth (January Jones), at their hotel to try and retrieve it. During his cab ride back to the airport, however, a serious car accident lands Dr. Harris in the hospital, where he lies in a coma for four days. Upon awakening, Dr. Harris is horrified to discover that every relic of his identity has been completely erased. His shock is soon compounded when, upon seeking out his wife at a lavish party, another man (Aidan Quinn) appears by her side claiming to be the real Dr. Martin Harris, and requests that hotel security protect them from the unstable "imposter." Facing total denial from everyone he turns to, Dr. Harris gets a tip from a sympathetic nurse to seek out the assistance of Ernst Jürgen (Bruno Ganz), the former head of the German Secret Police, who implores him to track down Gina (Diane Kruger), the illegal immigrant taxi driver who narrowly saved his life, and may hold the answers to all of his questions. Now, the closer Dr. Harris gets to solving the mystery, the greater the danger becomes until the astonishing truth is revealed, plunging him into a desperate race against time. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Familiar formula works again for Neeson

      Liam Neeson took the successful formula found in 2009's, "Taken", and rides it throughout a fairly well-acted, sharply filmed, action-fest called, "Unknown". In this film, Neeson's character's identity is taken after he has a serious car crash and loses his memory. As he slowly puts the pieces of his life back together again, he starts to see why his name was stolen and kicks serious butt along the way to reclaim it. If you liked "Taken" or are just a Neeson fan, you'll enjoy, "Unknown".

      I must admit that I was very happy with purchasing this movie. I was able to watch it many times now and lend it to my friends and family to enjoy as well.. It must have snuck under the radar, because I hadn't heard much on it at the theaters or in conversations around town. A must see (if you ask me).. pdoc

      The plot for this movie is really well done. Watching this for the second time I realized there weren't that many action sequences. However if you want a thriller that keeps you guessing, Unknown is a lot better than movies like Killing Them Softly and Jack Reacher.

      It was a good movie to watch. It definitely keeps your attention and it has a nice twist at the end. I definitely didn't see that coming. The acting was fairly well. It's not the best of the best but it's worth watching especially if you like Liam, Neeson

      Finely Constructed Thriller Which Keeps You Guessing All the Way. I guess if you really want to put an American in a harsh situation, have him lose his memory in a foreign country. Despite his age, Neeson still has it in him. It's all in the ending!!!

      Just when you think you know what's going on the twist in the plot changes everything. Great acting and lots of action. Even my wife loved it and that says a lot since she doesn't usually like this kind of movie.

      Liam Neeson is such a great actor, I felt Unknown was a weak movie though, Liam is always fun and worth watching though even if it's not a particularly great action movie, his best movie in my opinion by far is Taken both 1 and 2.

      Excellent story line, lots of action from new action king Liam Neeson. Diane Kruger as well as January Jones add to the intrigue of this action packed movie.
