Five men desperately try to recover their memories and piece together the traumatic events of the past several days in this independent thriller. In an abandoned warehouse, a handful of men slowly regain consciousness, but they've been stricken with amnesia and have no idea who they are, where they are, or what has happened to them. All five seem to have been in some sort of serious scuffle; one is tied up (Joe Pantoliano), another has been handcuffed (Jeremy Sisto), a third has a broken nose (Greg Kinnear), and the other two have their share of scrapes and bruises (Jim Caviezel and Barry… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's a good little thriller lurking somewhere in the depths of "Unknown," but it never quite rises to the surface."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"It's a good gimmick, but still a gimmick, and we're left with more confusion than tension."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"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."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Enjoyable thriller with superb performances, a decent plot and some thought-provoking ideas about identity and human nature underneath its twisty tale."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Never rises above the level of a promising calling card, but there's something refreshing about its innate sense of its own B-movieness."
‑ Andrew Wright, The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
"You wish some of the plot holes had been spackled better."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Unknown is far from a perfect movie, but it's more amusing than many better-made ones."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"click for full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"A knife-sharp psychological action thriller."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"Gimmicky but effective, this claustrophobic thriller has such an intriguing premise that it keeps us entertained even as it gets increasingly contrived."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"A nifty little psychological crime thriller that suggests a Treasure of the Sierra Madre for the postindustrial age."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Unknown is far from unwatchable, just undistinguished."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"goes round in circles, with petty arguments and lengthy monologues making the minutes drag in what ought to be a taut thriller."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"This is the work of filmmakers so satisfied with a story that isn't the least bit satisfying."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"A premissa é instigante, mas, infelizmente, quanto mais descobrimos sobre a trama, menos interessante o filme se torna."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
