Unknown  2006 mystery movie

Running time: 85 minutes

Language: English

Five men wake up in a locked-down warehouse in a secluded area with no memory of who they are and what happened to them. One of them is tied to a chair, one is handcuffed and looks like he was shot, the three most likely were in a fight. There are bars and security glass in all the windows and electronic locks on the doors. All the people locked inside can see around through the windows, looks like a desert in the middle of nowhere. When the phone rings, one of them picks it up and tries not to let the caller know that he has no clue who he is and what they are actually talking about. The only thing he gained from this conversation was the information that there was a gun someone left in a drawer of a desk nearby. Soon a newspaper is found in the washing room, one of the articles leads them to a clue what event might have brought them here - the kidnapping of a rich businessman, but the problem is they still have no idea which one of them could be kidnapped and which are the criminals.

Unknown, despite clearly being made on a very low budget, uses a quite interesting premise of people stuck in a place with no recollection of who they are and what they do here (similar to f.e. Cube or Saw), but since initially, they do not remember anything from their past, the story is full of twists and interesting changes that are taking place within the group since no one knows who can he actually trust and what was his part in the plot. It might not be the greatest film ever made, but it is good enough to keep viewers entertained for an hour and a half.
