    Zwei Männer und einen Wald – viel mehr brauchen einige Filme nicht und funktionieren trotzdem. Genau so verhält es sich bei „Never Forget – Mörderische Gedanken“. Lou Diamond Phillips wacht plötzlich kopfüber an einem Baum hängend auf und befindet sich allein in einem Wald. Doch nicht für lange Zeit, schon nach wenige Minuten stößt er auf einen anderen Mann, der ihn fortan mit vorgehaltener Pistole zwingt zu einer Hütte zu gehen, währenddessen zeigt der Film einige Flashbacks und beantwortet so Fakt für Fakt die Frage, wieso Frank eigentlich an dem Baum gehangen ist. Die Spannung spitzt sich dadurch zum intensiven Finale hin zu, das wenn man nicht besonders gut aufgepasst hat auch durchaus verwirren kann. Eigentlich wird die Auflösung bereits in einer Rückblende in der Mitte des Fils verraten und wer mitdenkt kommt auch recht schnell drauf. Dennoch kann man „Never Forget“ nicht als Standardkost abtun und Freunde des gepflegten Thrills können auf jeden Fall einen Blick riskieren.

    Film similar to "Memento". Acting was subpar and the plot lacked excitement.

    This is a low-budget reproduction of the basic premise of "Momento", with a shittier storyline, less compelling characters, and horrendous dialogues.

    Lou Diamond Phillips plays Frank Hill - a man who wakes up in tied upside down in a tree and is full of blood. When he gets himself down from the tree, he can't remember who he is, and how he got there. Another man named Andy, comes along with a gun and demands that him and Frank go back to a cabin. Along the way, Frank has flash backs and remembers that murder took place there. Did Frank commit these murders or did Andy? This movie kept me guessing and really liked the way it ended.

    Not well done. Good premise of a man waking hung from a tree, bleeding with no memory of what happened. But the trip through the woods with his memory slowly being restored, while being led by someone he is not sure whether to trust or not leaves much to be desired.

    Not as good as "Eagle Eye," "Vacancy," or "Disturbia," but still a decent thriller

    i only saw the last 5 minutes and first 5 minutes. not enough to warrant a true rating.but enough to warrant a "what the crap was this" comment from me.

    I only wanted to see this because of Sarah Manninen, but sadly, her talents are wasted in this flick. Lou does great at playing characters like this, so that was good. But the movie, though only 90 minutes, still drags. Not enough happens during the first half, and very little suspense is built up. The second half is better, although I felt Lou figured things out too soon. I wanted more ambiguity. It was okay.

    kind of intriguing low budget mystery. an interesting script, that doesn't feel totally fleshed out till it's over. lou diamond phillips isn't too bad in this flick either
