I have been hearing a lot of comparisons between this film and Liam Neeson’s surprise 2008 hit Taken. However, while they are both films that feature Neeson in a genre he is not usually known for, they are two different types of film.
While the term is probably overused, the best description of Unknown would be that of a Hitchcockian thriller. It wouldn’t be too much of stretch to think of this film as something Alfred Hitchcock might of done, especially with all the different twists and turns in the plot.
All and all, I thought that this was a quite entertaining film.
