Film: Unknown

Unknown is widely rated as a mediocre film. Not knowing this before watching it, and being able to forgive over-the-top, extended action sequences (hey, it's a Liam Neeson action flick, what do you expect!), I was pleasantly surprised. In fact, this movie acheived something that most movies in this genre fail miserably at: it kept me guessing throughout. Some movies like Inception and Memento are designed to befuddle and they do so admirably, but the relatively straight forward action-thrillers which try to keep the audience guessing typically fail at the first attempt. For that, I give it a generous four stars!
