Despite an interesting story, The Infiltrator is only propelled thanks to its charismatic cast, especially Bryan Cranston who once again turns in a great performance, it’s just a shame the script wasn’t equally great.
After watching The Better Angels, it comes to no surprise this not only was produced by Terrence Malick but was written and directed by his editor of To the Wonder and Knight of Cups, A.J. Edwards. Full disclosure, I am not a Malick fan and Edwards more or less copies his mentor’s style making for a downright dull and boring film.
Unknown isn’t a particularly special film and it’s nowhere near as great or suspenseful as Taken, but on its own, this is a well developed picture that Neeson fans and those who enjoy a simple mystery will find this to be a fine way to spend two hours on a movie night. The Blu-ray has good video and audio transfers but the features are few and far between, unfortunately.
