Unknown takes the audience into a world of action and questioning of who an individual really is. Through suspense and confusion audience have to think on whether or not they know who they are. Overall, it is a great movie; it keeps the audience anticipating what will happen next. It was a little slow as it was getting into the movie but as soon as it picked up speed it never slowed done.
