Action thriller.

2011. 113 min.

Director: Jaume Collet-Serra.


Rating: 3/5

Bio-technologist Dr Martin Harris (Neeson) arrives in Berlin to speak at a conference.

When he leaves his briefcase – with his passport inside – at the airport it sparks a series of events that has him waking from a coma in hospital days later, his memory partly erased.

What’s more, his wife doesn’t know him and another man claims to be him. It’s as if he never existed.

Now Martin, with the help of a taxi driver (Kruger), must prove who he is. Meanwhile a violent maniac is out to kill him.

It’s hard to believe Neeson’s dour scientist suddenly turning into an action hero, not to mention doing something as stupid as leaving his briefcase at the airport.

As for the action, you’ve seen it all before – but it’s made up for by a few clever plot twists and good performances from Kruger, Langella as Martin’s mysterious “friend” and Ganz as a former East German spy for whom the Cold War lives on.

Bonus: featurettes.
