Nee­son’s un­rav­els world

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

The A-Team, Taken, ac­tor Liam Nee­son has loved whip­ping his glock out in those man of ac­tion roles re­cently and, while this one is more based around thrills and in­trigue than gun play and ac­tion, the mix of all that makes for de­cent ( al­beit mostly un­de­mand­ing) view­ing. The mys­tery cen­tres on Dr Martin Har­ris ( Nee­son) who is in Ber­lin with his wife ( Jan­uary Jones) for a con­ven­tion but be­comes in­volved in an ac­ci­dent be­fore he can make his ap­pear­ance. Af­ter four days in a coma he awak­ens to find his wife no longer recog­nises him and an­other man has taken his iden­tity. With no iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and lit­tle idea of what’s hap­pened he sets out to find the truth. De­spite some plot­ting over­sim­pli­fi­ca­tion the story builds nicely for the first half but, un­for­tu­nately, as the mys­tery un­folds and the se­crets are re­vealed things do get a lit­tle hokey and the out­landish mo­ments take over. Ex­tras: Fea­turettes – one that de­tails the plot and char­ac­ters of the film, the other a look at Liam Nee­son and his ac­tion hero per­sona. NOT VIEWED
