No this is not a confused post, Yesterday I watched Unknown, this was a complete impulse viewing as Annabel was working behind the bar at the cinema and I had some time to kill, I was pleasantly surprised.
Five guys wake up in an abandoned warehouse with no memory of who they are or why they are there, it’s obvious that some of them have been held hostage and some were the hostage takers, aside from that, they know nothing. As with most amnesia films this film goes through the characters discovering who they are.
The film keeps you guessing who is who, as the characters go through the usual forming, storming, norming performing formula, allegiances are formed broken and the characters are constantly questioning who they are, who they were and who they want to be.
Over all a fun film which reminded me of a mixture of Cube (People trapped in a box) and Memento (For the memory loss, although with less tatoos) for a film I had never heard of before I bought the tickets I was really pleased with my random choice, well worth seeing.
You may notice a running theme of good reviews, I also saw Wild Hogs yesterday, but I’m not going to write about it, because you can tell everything you need to about it by watching the trailer, pointless fun, if not very deep.
