WHO’S IT FOR? It’s your basic run-of-the-mill thriller with a good mystery brewing. SPOILER ALERT — there will be some things that are discussed in this review. Don’t worry, I do my best when it comes to spoilers so if you aren’t already out the door buying your ticket to Unknown you should be safe. Don’t trust other critics with spoilers though … ever.
EXPECTATIONS: I thought I was getting an amnesia movie, I also figured that if you’re going down that path again in a movie, you’re going to have to know what you’re doing.
