Like an irritating sense of déjà-vu, you would swear that you've seen this all before, as paranoid amnesiacs, European locales, and leather jacket clad hit men collide to make for a mildly entertaining thriller.

goes round in circles, with petty arguments and lengthy monologues making the minutes drag in what ought to be a taut thriller.

This is the work of filmmakers so satisfied with a story that isn't the least bit satisfying.

A premissa é instigante, mas, infelizmente, quanto mais descobrimos sobre a trama, menos interessante o filme se torna.

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.

The gimmick is all worn out, the script never makes us believe its epidemic of memory loss could ever happen, and its crescendo of third-act plot twists play like a desperate patch job on a concept that just didn't come off.

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

Almost everybody's got amnesia in Unknown, and after watching it you might pine to be similarly afflicted.

Unknown is far from unwatchable, just undistinguished.

Screenwriter Matthew Waynee doesn't quite know when to provide clues and when to withhold.

Gritty, gimmicky.

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

80 minutes that could have been better spent watching Reservoir Dogs, The Usual Suspects, Memento, Saw or just half of The Departed.

The movie's disinterest in character might be forgivable were its plot not riddled with holes.
November 9, 2006
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.
