Never one to miss out on Liam Neeson kicking the bejesus out of Europeans (almost as good as Jason Statham kicking the bejesus out of Los Angelenos!), naturally I was pumped about Unknown, the conspiracy thriller starring Neeson as an American in Berlin facing identity theft, a wife who disavows him and a whole mess of assassins. And while I left the theater more or less entertained, this movie's plot holes, logic problems and risibly tidy ending really detract from what could have been a great holdover until Taken 2. Unfortunately, it felt more like the direct-to-DVD sequel to Frantic.
You know what's surprising? A great cast, a pair of lunatic screenwriters and a badass premise can still make a terrible, unbelievably half-assed movie. I know! It's never happened before in the history of film! And yet, it somehow happened with Jonah Hex, a movie so bad I'm actually having difficulty coming up with a comparable example of its flagrant awfulness.
