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).
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
