Starring: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger January Jones, Aidan Quinn.
It's quite hard to write about this movie without giving away Spoilers, so I'll keep this review deliberately vague. A man travels from the US to Berlin and pretty much straight away is involved in an accident which leaves him in a coma. When he awakens, he discovers another man has taken his identity, but strangely not even his own wife, believes him. He looks to a young woman (the Taxi Driver from his earlier accident) for answers, and together they try to piece together the events, and get to the truth.
This movie has action, suspense, mystery, baddies, murders, car chases and January Jones. God, that woman is annoying. Unknown is completely implausible, but if you just treat it as a popcorn movie, it's not too bad. Liam Neeson is good, but he should be, given the amount of times he's been cast in this type of role. Don't think too hard and you may enjoy the ride.
