Movie Review: "Unknown"

My son and I just saw "Unknown." I would have saved it for airplane, Netflix, or DVD viewing, but Kenneth Turan, the L.A. Times movie critic, wrote a good review so we decided to see it. It's really quite good, sort of in the same genre as "The Bourne Identity" movies. I think it'll do quite well. It has a good plot that keeps you guessing, some good twists, decently acted, and a couple of the obligatory car chases and explosions (but less of that, and more credible, than in the Bourne movies).

It's also safe for family viewing for those who are comfortable with a PG-13 rating. There is one barnyard epithet in the whole movie and there are a fair number of dead bodies (it is, after all, a spy movie), but no gore. Well-done, all in all. Recommended!
