New Unknown Trailer Lands
It's Taken meets Lost meets Shattered

25 January 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

The new trailer for Unknown spells possible disaster for Europe's shadier sorts. Liam Neeson is back on the continent and while we're steering clear of any obvious Taken references*, this is clearly a thriller with more than a few parallels to Pierre Morel's 2008 box-office behemoth.

For one thing, Neeson's car crash victim Dr. Martin Harris has a very particular set of skills. Unfortunately none of them extend to knowing who the heck he is and why he's woken up to find that half of Berlin wants to kill him. His wife (January Jones) appears not to know who he is and another man (Aidan Quinn) has pinched his identity. Luckily, Diane Kruger's mysterious taxi driver is prepared to help him out of his predicament.

With head-scratching statements like "Somewhere there's proof I'm me!", Neeson's amnesiac is clearly having some trouble shepherding his ducks back into a row. But, hey, this is a movie in which Diane Kruger plays a cabbie, so we're not expecting too much by way of logic.

Tak.. erm, Unknown is out on April 13.

Unknown, not unknowable
Well, I'd like to see this movie. If it has shades of the unbridled righteous rage displayed by Liam Neeson in 'Taken', then all the better. Let's not hold our breath for a line as eloquent and memorable as 'What I do have are a very particular set of skills', because seriously, that line was one in a million. More
