    Steven ReaPhiladelphia Inquirer

    It's all very Hitchcockian, at least for a while. And clever and exciting, too, even if the convergences begin to strain credulity, and, when you think about it, defy logic, too. show more

    All of the nonsense piled on nonsense does provide some measure of pleasure. Unknown gets better by getting worse. show more

    Director Jaume Collet-Serra provides a steady flow of suspense and a very Polanski-esque feeling of paranoia. show more
