Storyline

A man with amnesia wakes up in a Red Cross African Hospital dazed and confused. He is interrogated by the local military Captain Mugambe that tells that his name apparently is John Reilly and he works for the CIA. But soon he has other visitors, including his former partner and his wife, and John has fragmented recollections. Soon he recalls that he is involved in a terrorism ring and he might not be who Captain Mugambe believes he is but a notorious terrorist. Further, he can not trust anybody but his instincts. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Crafty and Interesting Thriller that Somehow Lacks
16 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

The cast of this film will really appeal to you if you know who people like Nick Chinlund, Isaach de Bankole, and Peter Bogdanovich are. But for those of you that don't, you read the reviews and see if it's worth a rental with a bunch of smaller-scale actors. For this one, it is.

Nick Chinlund (the guy Nic Cage said "Give me the bunny" to in Con Air) wakes up in a hospital in a foreign land. He can't remember who he is, how he got there, or what he was doing beforehand. It sounds pretty typical, I know.

The acting is exceptional, which is not a surprise with Chinlund. He never disappoints. I'll never forget the killer he played in "The X-Files". Isaach de Bankole is the guy who starred in "The Limits of Control", and he here plays an investigator of sorts, who is trying to figure out Chinlund's story. Henry Czerny and Peter Bogdanovich also have small roles.

I watched this on netflix instant play, and I'm glad I did, though "The Fifth Patient" really brings nothing new to the table. It was a good film with good actors, but it's not a film I'd go all-out to see.
