'Unknown' Blu-Ray Is Unexceptional

July 6th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
Unknown
The next title on this week's list is the Liam Neeson thriller Unknown, which also arrives from Warner Home Video in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack. Here's my review.

The Movie

One of my friends jokingly remarked that we might be starting a whole genre of films where an angry Liam Neeson gets revenge on and/or beats up people, not unlike the Mel Gibson of such movies like Payback.

Liam Neeson stars in another new action movie opening this weekend. In Unknown he plays a man in Berlin who finds himself replaced after an automobile accident. He has to fight his way to the truth, which is a new trend for Neeson.

“I seem to have gotten a new lease on life since this Taken movie was successful,” he said. “At the age of 58, it’s great to get that kind of an action hero.”

Neeson has a very particular set of skills that make him equipped to rise to the occasion each movie demands. “I was a kid when I boxed. I started when I was 9, and I finished when I was 17 or so, competi...
