This movie has a strange plot, but is probably one of the most mysterious movies in a long time for me. every time I think I know who is on who's side and who are the good guys or bad guys, everything flips. Watch with your friends and take wagers as to who is who and listen to the comments!

This movie was pretty good but different. It will definitely keep you guessing the whole time even to the end. And you still wonder if you really know for sure what happened. 4 stars

Great suspense. Lots of twists and turns. Good cast. Five guys wake up in a warehouse. They have memory loss from a chemical that was released. Two were kidnapped, the others are kidnappers. Who is who?

With so many twists and turns, can you figure out the truth
C. Crockett | Indiana, USA | 01/26/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

This diamond-in-the-rough film is aptly named..."Unknown" is a virtually unknown movie that deserves far more attention than it has thus far received.

A Quick Synopsis: 5 men awaken to find themselves trapped together inside an abandoned warehouse that is sealed shut, with no way out, and absolutely no memory of how they got there. Some of the men are tied up, while others are not. The men soon realize that three of them are kidnappers...and the other two are the kidnapees. But which is which? This movie takes you on a wild thrill ride as the men struggle against the situation, and each other. Who can be trusted? As their memory slowly returns to them, they frantically try to piece together the truth before their time runs out...but all is not what it seems...

Greg Kinnear and James Caviezel turn in admirable performances, and help lead the cast of lesser knowns through this twisted storyline. This movie invokes many deep seated fears of trust and betrayal, while constantly keeping the audience in suspense of the true identities of each character. The only negative thing I might say about this movie was that at times the pacing seemed to be a little off, but other than that it was truly entertaining! The film will lead you down one path until you think you have a pretty good idea of whats going on, and then suddenly pull a quick 180 and completely change everything you thought you knew. It's exciting, and a lot of fun, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.

Bottom line, it's time for "Unknown" to become well-known."

"I give this film credit for being original. 5 men wake up in a locked building in the middle of the desert. 1 is tied, 1 is handcuffed and shot, one has a broken nose. After being exposed to a toxic gas, none of the men can remember who they are and why they are there. The whole movie deals with the men trying to get out of the building, remember who they are, and who was the bad guys in this situation. It is an interesting social piece, and it is fun to watch the men unravel as random bits of memory come back to them. The ending has a twist or three to suprise you. A very talented cast of actors do a wonderful job with the movie. This is not quite as good as Memento, but it is a good film to catch."
Unknown should be known

"I'm glad I picked this up for a Rental. It is now on my "to buy" list. I thought it was a great movie. The script could have been a bit more tight and thoughtful, but overall pretty good. It has some of my favorite actors in it. It is original, good story. It would be one I would watch again and think about philosophically. Is man or woman essentially good or bad? What makes a man evil?

There is no easy answers in life or in this movie."
