There's a good little thriller lurking somewhere in the depths of "Unknown," but it never quite rises to the surface.

You wish some of the plot holes had been spackled better.

A nifty little psychological crime thriller that suggests a Treasure of the Sierra Madre for the postindustrial age.

It's a good gimmick, but still a gimmick, and we're left with more confusion than tension.

Unknown is far from a perfect movie, but it's more amusing than many better-made ones.

Unknown is far from unwatchable, just undistinguished.

Unknown comes across more like an amateur stage play, mechanically working through the obligatory three acts toward the obligatory twist ending.

The movie's disinterest in character might be forgivable were its plot not riddled with holes.

You can't fault the cast on this one, but you can fault the way the big-name actors have been distributed.

While Brand manages a couple of effectively brutal bits of violence, Matthew Waynee's gassy screenplay is all premise and no propulsion.

The performances are uniformly excellent, and Brand relies on his music video training to provide some tantalizing flashback clues.

Tyro video helmer Simon Brand doesn't give his actors sufficient breathing room, ruthlessly chopping their scenes into monotonous hash.

To kill 80 minutes, the movie has to pad itself with several dull speeches and stagy moments.

It all comes together at the end, logically and with a twist. But it's not a game that allows the audience to play along.

Brisk pacing and an excellent cast of mostly B-list actors can't make up for the commonplace premise and execution of Simon Brand's twisty thriller Unknown.

It's not nearly as risky or as inspired as the movies it borrows from. But it keeps its audience's collective head in the game, thanks in large part to an impressive cast enacting the sometimes ludicrous proceedings with conviction.

Once the paranoid surrealism of the opening scenes begins to fade, so does the film's inherent interest level.

The pacing is slightly off, with the action switching between the imprisoned men and the police who are trying to find them, and what should be a mounting sense of urgency inside the warehouse (think Reservoir Dogs) falters and goes slack.

The result is passable, though it's clear that his forte lies elsewhere.
