The pairing of Neeson and January Jones as a couple, I found to be quite unbelievable from the offset. This most probably soured a reveal moment for me and lead to possibly one of the most awkward shower sex scenes in a movie. Neeson felt like his typical self and did not really deliver much enthusiasm to the role, the same can be said for the aloof January Jones.
It is unfortunate because there is potential here. On the surface Unknown wants to be a smart thriller, but in essence felt as if they took an interesting concept and attached it to an 80’s action script. Although, if I pitched it as “The Third Man meets True Lies”, you would probably be sold on it.
Movie Rating: 2.5/5
