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.
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...
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).Read more ›
