TRAILER: Liam Neeson's "Unknown"

PLOT: A man (Liam Neeson) awakens in Berlin from a coma, only to discover that someone (Aidan Quinn) has taken on his identity and that no one, not even his wife (January Jones), believes him. With the help of a young woman (Diane Kruger), he sets out to prove who he is.

CAST: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds), Aidan Quinn (Practical Magic), January Jones ("Mad Men"), Frank Langella.

VERDICT: This film reminds me of Taken, but instead of stealing someone he loves, they steal his identity. Neeson has become the go-to-guy for truth-seeking vigilantes, and it suits him well. I think fans of his previous films will really enjoy watching him fight back, and conspiracy theorists will tune in to find out what the nefarious plot is all about. I want to know if his wife is in on it or if she was brainwashed, because Kruger's character seems to have changed careers as if she knew to pretend that it never happened. I hope Jones is in on it. She has that creepy Stepford wife look down.

Release Date: February 18
