One of us just saw Unknown, starring Liam Neeson. Whereas Taken, Neeson’s other action vehicle was a stupid story with good direction and entertaining pacing, Unknown was a pretty good story with poor direction and pacing that made it stupid. This is an unremarkable action thriller. The first half is really bad. There are moments during that first half where the movie feels like a parody of an action movie. The second half picks up in momentum, starts revealing things, and gets a little more entertaining. This blogger never really cared about the characters or what was going on in the movie though. It’s pretty run-of-the-mill. Slightly above average. There were times where we were bored.

If you really want to see this, go ahead. If your friends are trying to drag you to see it, fight it. But if they won’t give in, go ahead and see it. It’s ok. It’s mildly amusing. But this blogger is sure that anyone who enjoyed Taken and is looking for something similar will be disappointed. It’s really a shame, because the trailer looked interesting, and there’s not much in theatres that we haven’t seen that is watchable.

Liam was decent. Diane Krueger was good. January Jones can act about as well as a piece of bread. It was set in Berlin, so it was nice to hear a little of the German language. The artist guy from The Lives of Others was in it, but that just made this blogger sad that she was watching Unknown and not The Lives of Others.

Movie Grade: C+
