A terrible movie full of cliches, tired story lines borrowed from other films, a "twist" that could be seen a mile off. Not worth spending a dime on. This was a Hollywood slap it together and hope Liam Neson can carry it to making a few bucks. Liam, I'm ashamed you wasted your talent on this total dog.

Village Voice
The pacing is slightly off, with the action switching between the imprisoned men and the police who are trying to find them, and what should be a mounting sense of urgency inside the warehouse (think Reservoir Dogs) falters and goes slack. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Music video director Simon Brand makes an impressively taut debut with Unknown, a nifty little psychological crime thriller that suggests a "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" for the postindustrial age. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
It all comes together at the end, logically and with a twist. But it's not a game that allows the audience to play along. When the story is controlled by whatever memories the writer and director choose to put in the characters' heads, you're always on the outside looking in. Full Review
Laura Kern
The New York Times
After a whole lot of buildup, and a real letdown of a payoff, the only enigma left is why we should care. Full Review
Ronnie Scheib
Variety
Brand has assembled a cast of world class improvisers, yet doesn't take advantage of their own particularized, inflected rhythms, as each ritualistically experiences a jump-cut fragmentary flashback in front of the same bathroom mirror. Full Review
