It finally came to a Theater near me
4 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought Unknown was great. I really had to keep up with the twists and certainly forced me to pay attention (which is a good thing!) as sometimes I start to zone out. I was impressed with the cast given the independent nature of the movie and the fact that it isn't playing in many theaters. I love Jim Caviezel..he's a babe! I also like Greg Kinnear and was surprised to see him play a not-so-likable guy but then again...what do you expect given the circumstances. Joe P was funny in his own way and Barry Pepper was an unknown to me until this movie. One of my new favorite TV shows is Six Degrees which stars Bridget M. She was great in this movie and a total surprise to me at the end. I never predicted the end at all and that made the movie all the better. I did not foresee a lot of what transpired in the end...don't want to give it away though. I sure hope it gets to more theaters but if it doesn't, buy it through pay-per-view or rent the DVD. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it kept me on my toes.
