"Sleek and, until a stupidly violent climax, very entertaining..."

"...whips up a big old puree of ingredients borrowed from other cinematic recipes. Then it dishes out the mildly spiced results as post-Oscar-quality snack food..."
— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Action fans expecting another righteous display of ass-kicking from Liam Neeson may feel slightly let down by Unknown, which casts the Taken star as clueless prey rather than ruthless predator."
— Justin Chang, Variety
"...a tepid thriller..."
— Nick Schager, Village Voice
"...Unknown isn't even half as smart or fun as the worst 007 spy caper."
— Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
