Product Description

Academy Award® nominee Greg Kinnear (Best Supporting Actor, As Good As It Gets, 1997; The Matador) and James Caveizel (The Passion Of The Christ) light up the screen in this riveting psychological thriller that delivers nerve-jarring suspense like The Usual Suspects and Memento. Five strangers wake up in a locked warehouse with no memory of who they are or how they got there. Now they are forced on a journey together to discover who is good -- and who is evil -- in order to stay alive. Watch in real time as facts are revealed, the unknown becomes known...and this stunningly unpredictable motion picture leads you down a path of twists and turns that may uncover the truth. Also starring Joe Pantoliano (HBO's The Sopranos), Bridget Moynaghan (I, Robot), Jeremy Sisto (HBO's Six Feet Under) and Barry Pepper (Saving Private Ryan).

Amazon.com

Taking a cue from Memento, Unknown uses flashbacks to tell its story, which is full of intrigue. A group of seemingly unrelated men (played by Greg Kinnear, Joe Pantoliano, Jim Caviezel, Berry Pepper, and Jeremy Sisto) find themselves in an abandoned warehouse, and each one claims he is suffering from amnesia. Somehow, they had been involved in a kidnapping plot, but when they come to, the men have no clue which of them are the perpetrators and which are the victims. The film has the makings of a convincing thriller, but where it fails is in its attempt to be overly clever. For a suspense story to work, the filmmaker has to be willing to divulge a few clues along the way. (For instance, how did the men all lose their memories at the same time?) The problem is that Matthew Waynee's script is long on words, but short on meaning, leaving the viewer impatient and frustrated long before the film fades to black. --Jae-Ha Kim

This diamond-in-the-rough film is aptly named..."Unknown" is a virtually unknown movie that deserves far more attention than it has thus far received.

A Quick Synopsis: 5 men awaken to find themselves trapped together inside an abandoned warehouse that is sealed shut, with no way out, and absolutely no memory of how they got there. Some of the men are tied up, while others are not. The men soon realize that three of them are kidnappers...and the other two are the kidnapees. But which is which? This movie takes you on a wild thrill ride as the men struggle against the situation, and each other. Who can be trusted? As their memory slowly returns to them, they frantically try to piece together the truth before their time runs out...but all is not what it seems...

Greg Kinnear and James Caviezel turn in admirable performances, and help lead the cast of lesser knowns through this twisted storyline. This movie invokes many deep seated fears of trust and betrayal, while constantly keeping the audience in suspense of the true identities of each character. The only negative thing I might say about this movie was that at times the pacing seemed to be a little off, but other than that it was truly entertaining! The film will lead you down one path until you think you have a pretty good idea of whats going on, and then suddenly pull a quick 180 and completely change everything you thought you knew. It's exciting, and a lot of fun, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.

Bottom line, it's time for "Unknown" to become well-known.

I give this film credit for being original. 5 men wake up in a locked building in the middle of the desert. 1 is tied, 1 is handcuffed and shot, one has a broken nose. After being exposed to a toxic gas, none of the men can remember who they are and why they are there. The whole movie deals with the men trying to get out of the building, remember who they are, and who was the bad guys in this situation. It is an interesting social piece, and it is fun to watch the men unravel as random bits of memory come back to them. The ending has a twist or three to suprise you. A very talented cast of actors do a wonderful job with the movie. This is not quite as good as Memento, but it is a good film to catch.

This movie has a very startling beginning. Can you imagine waking up in an unfamiliar location one day, feeling like you were hit over the head with a steel pipe, and not know who you are or why you're there? Imagine also being locked up in this place with a few other people who are scattered across the room just as bloodied and beaten up as you are. To me, it doesn't get much more frightening than this, and so you'll find yourself immediately intrigued and thrilled to find out what will happen to these characters next. Of course, after the first hour of the same questions being asked over and over again, you may find yourself a bit bored and just wondering outloud, "let's get to the point already!" Very memorable performance by Greg Kinnear here, with excellent acting from Jim Caviezel and Barry Pepper as well. And when the movie DOES get to the last 15 minutes, you will find yourself even more excited than you were in the first 15 minutes. It does take awhile to get there (even though this film isn't very long), but it is well worth the wait. I think some may find this movie a worthy purchase, and others a memorable rental. I purchased the movie and am happy enough, but had I seen it in theatres I may not have gone out to buy the DVD. But since this movie was only shown in a few theatres (I think 10) across the country, I never had the opportunity.

Definitely check this movie out. It's worth watching for the incredible cast! I'm still surprised this didn't get more recognition with the kind of star-power it had going for it; not to mention it's far better than most of the poor excuses for movies the theatres release lately...

Format: DVD
Amnesia is a tough act to sell. Proven fickle in doctor's offices, unpinnable in medical textbooks, and about as comprehensible as the consciousness it attacks, Memory Loss is a device that can propel a story (see Memento or Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) as much as it can cause it to stall (see 50 First Dates or Paycheck).

When its used as a gimmick, as a way to surgically graft suspense and intrigue into a script that would otherwise have none, it usually fails. But when it is a real part of the character, when it illuminates ideas explored by the entire storyline, it can prove useful.

"Unknown" falls somewhere between the two. The movie goes whole hog with its amnesia: five men wake up, locked in a warehouse, all of them suffering from gaps in the mind, apparantly caused by the leaking of some toxic chemicals. They are beaten, broken, bruised, shot, and -- in two cases -- chained and bound. After a bit of sleuthing, they realize that three of them are kidnappers, and the other two are their victims, but no one has any idea which is which.

To make matters worse, the three kidnappers at the warehouse are only part of a larger group. Through phone calls they learn that the other half of their team is soon to return, ransom money in hand (and -- unknowingly -- cops on their tails).
