Starring: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones, Aidan Quinn, Frank Langella
Liam Neeson is Dr. Martin Harris, or, at least he thinks he is. After being in a car crash he wakes up to find his world turned upside down. Eager to get back to his wife (Jones) he leaves the hospital against doctors orders only to be confronted by someone else claiming to be Dr. Harris (Quinn). With all the confusion Martin seeks out his taxi driver (Kruger) for answers. When assassins come after Martin he realizes that there is more going on than just a simple case of mistaken identity.
Although the movie feels like it’s pieced together from other movies I really enjoyed it. If you were to take the “Bourne Identity” and add a little “Taken” and “The Fugitive” you get “Unknown”. Overall it’s not as good as those movies but still quite enjoyable, plus there’s a twist ending and those are always fun.
Grade: B
