Helmed by John Dahl, this is a little known sci-fi thriller that is surprisingly entertaining. It has a stable of good performers, mainly Ray Liotta, Peter Coyote & Linda Fiorentino and a fast-paced [though a bit hard to swallow] plot. Ray Liotta plays a coroner who is acquitted of killing his wife, but is bent on discovering who the real killer is. He attends a talk given by Linda Fiorentino, who plays a scientist that is experimenting with memory retrieval [extracted cerebral fluid].

The rest of the movie is a thrill ride as Ray Liotta tries to use the extracted cerebral fluid obtained from his dead wife's body, and a couple of other people to help him discover the real murderer. He plays the part convincingly and so does Linda Fiorentino as the brainy, reticent scientist [amazing given some of her other sexy & provocative roles such as in the Last Seduction]. There is no real sex in this movie, but the plot is riveting nonetheless, as we try to figure out who the real perpetrator is.

All in all, this is an entertaining thriller with a sci-fi undertone, and is a worthwhile addition to the genre.

John Dahl should smash the box-office one of these days because he truely deserves it. Unforgettable is his best work effort, a gripping suspensefiul script supported by an excellent cast and a director who knows how to keep you on the edge of your sofa. The Dolby Digital track is very dynamic and does justice to Christopher Young's remarkable score. This widescreen edition is not anamorphic, as marked on the back cover, but the image is sharp.

Once you get past the implausibility of the plot (mainly that the drug culled from Cerebral spinal fluid could do what occurs in this movie), you have a nervewrackingly good thriller. Ray Liotta, one of our most underappreciated actors, stars as a medical examiner who was cleared of murdering his wife by a technicality. In investigating a horrifying killing spree at a pharmacy, Ray thinks the killer is the same one who murdered his wife. He goes out on a date and meets Linda Fiorentino (quite good in a laconic way), who has developed a serum which allows memory transfer between rats. But, it is dangerous, and has not been tried on humans. Liotta is so empassioned with finding his wife's murderer, he steals the drug and uses it, and it does work, but without damage to his heart. From heron, Liotta finds out that Kim Coates (as a seedy drug dealer) is the one who did the pharmacy killing, and in flashbacks, he sees Coates attacking his wife. But, is he the true culprit? Many surprising plot twists evolve, and it is a great film. Featured are Peter Coyote, as Liotta's friend, a police detective; "Sex and the City's" Kim Cattrall has a small role as Liotta's sister in law who has custody of his girls; David Paymer plays Liotta's friend and partner; and Christopher McDonald is a seedy, sleazy cop who thinks Liotta did kill the wife.
John Dahl directs with assuredness and the rainy Seattle setting is perfect.
An unknown gem.

The best points of this sci-fi/mystery/thriller were: 1 - very good suspense; 2 - a different-angle story; 3 - an involving "whodunit;" 4 - and a fast- moving two-hour film.

Another big plus: John Dahl directed this, and in his prime. This movie came on the heels of Kill Me Again, Red Rock West and The Last Seduction.....all of them very entertaining films.

This would be best for the first-time viewer, but I still have enjoyed it the three times I've seen it. One thing unusual: Linda Fiorentino actually plays a nice lady! Ray Liotta, Peter Coyote, Christopher McDonald and David Paymer all provide good male performances with Liotta playing the central character.

Be warned that this story is a bit unbelievable. It's pretty far out, and it can get on the gory side, but it's different and will keep your attention.

I had heard bad reviews about this movie but went for it anyway because I am a Ray Liotta fan and Kim Cattrall is my favorite actress. The movie sounded interesting to me and it turns out that it is a good science fiction film. Liotta overhears a research scientists describing a new formula that can act on the brain preserving it's present genetic pattern allowing it to be jump started even if the person or other animal had been killed. Liotta, being a coroner has access to his dead wife's DNA from brain tissue. He is so obsessed in finding his wife's killer that he takes that it will work despite the health risks to the heart. Liotta has a lot on his plate from the get go. People still believe he killed his wife including his sister-in-law who has custody of his girls, played by Cattrall. Even the Researcher(Fiorentino) is afraid of him when he first comes to talk to her. But, the drug becomes promising and helps bag a criminal that shot four innocent people in a robbery. Liotta keeps using the drug though though ignoring the dangerous side effect.. Puts him in the hospital.
The movie has a lot of quick shots as seen by Liotta while drugged and you find yourself looking closely trying to see who just might be the bad guy or girl and weeding out what's significant and what is not. This is one of those movies that you do not want any distractions because it really does get down to a "who done it" and who will survive it.
