Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) and his wife fly to Berlin to attend a bio-tech conference. Soon after they arrive, Martin bumps his head during a car accident and loses consciousness. When he awakes four days later, no one seems to remember him, including his wife, and another man has assumed his identity. When someone tries to kill him, Martin has to fight to survive, find out who he is, and unravel the plot against him.

ClearPlay In Action!

Unknown has around fifteen instances of language to mute, including a couple of ‘S’ words, about eight mild obscenities, and a handful of religious explanations. Also trimmed are a sensual shower scene and a sexual reference. There are a couple of violent deaths that will cause some skips, but it’s not hard to figure out what happened. Filtered, Unknown would be appropriate for older teens and up.

Should I Get to Know Unknown?…

Unknown plays like a poor man’s Bourne Film, and some of the plot points seem directly lifted from that superior series. The setup of the mystery is strong and invests you in the story, just don’t expect to have your socks knocked off or even firmly pulled down as the increasingly preposterous plot unravels. If you’re looking for something in the Bourne vein with a modicum of suspense and a small dose of thrills, give Unknown a shot.
