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.
Matt Damon meets Roger Sterling, Ed Helms makes a pilgrimage to Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Josh Radnor adds "writer/director" to his resume in this week's batch of releases.
