Unknown is everything you want from a Liam Neeson movie. Fighting, running, desperation, outrage, and then that little smile that he gives to the special lady in the film that melts you just a bit. Okay, I’m not going to attempt to hide that I have a bit of a thing for Liam Neeson.
This film has Liam Neeson about to check in to a Berlin hotel with his wife, only he gets into an accident and wakes after being in a coma for three days. When he awakes, he knows who he is, but no one else does. And then it gets really exciting.
Man, sometimes I forget how much I enjoy action films. I like not having to think at all, and allowing myself to get surprised by the twists, even if they are obvious. I expect that many viewers of this film may well have figured out what was going on, at least to some extent. Not me, no siree. I let everything surprise me. I even get sucked in by the over-the-top music and the handheld camera chases. It’s all good.
