“Unknown”- A Movie Review

Standard

For the first time in a while, there was actually a movie I wanted to see out in theatres. I went today to see Unknown.  Liam Neeson is the star, and as usual, he’s his normal kick-butt self.  There were two women in the film. One was January Jones and she played his wife. The other was Diane Kruger, the woman that helps him when he’s being pursued. I much preferred the performance of Diane Kruger. She did a great job with a hard to play role. I think it was hard to play as the character was full of implausibilites. Some of the stuff she was asked to do would have never been done by a woman in her position.  A lot of this film stretched credulity. But it was a fun ride for two hours.

I loved that Aiden Quinn was in this film. I very much enjoy the film Michael Collins where Liam and Aiden play best friends and rivals for the love of Kitty.  It was fun to see them together again.  And it was also great to see Sebastian Koch in this film. One of my favorite foreign language films of all time has him in it. It’s called Black Book.  He’s an excellent actor. He plays the scientist, Professor Bressler.

For an afternoon of mindless entertainment, I say check this one out- it’s a wild romp.  AND if you’re so inclined, rent Black Book– an excellent, excellent choice.
