This movie begs for being bashed by people who believe they know about movies. For some reason, in recent years, special effects, action sequences and good-old spy/assassin/hero movies are a big no-no. A movie should be a bouquet of hormones, words and cheap props for it to be celebrated. So, thank whatever you believe in for people like me who still enjoy a good movie, one not boringly-realistic and mediocre, and with a real budget.
Liam Neeson’s character wakes up from a coma, only to discover he does not really exist. Not even his own wife recognizes him, and all his papers, photos and acquaintances seem to think someone else is Martin Harris.
Naturally, he goes on a mission to find out who he really is, and several cool and unexpected twists later, he ends up foiling a plot to assassinate a Saudi Prince, or so it seems…
This is indeed a cross between the Bourne Identity and Taken, but unlike Bourne, you don’t need several years and 3 movies to get what’s going on. I can’t really say anything else, cause I’d be spoling the movie, but I definitely recommend you go see it with a bunch of friends.
IMDB Rating: 6.5/10
