Looks good. Basically Taken on a plane, which is to this generation what Air Force One or Under Siege (Die Hard on a...)was nearly two decades ago, not that Taken is in anyway comparable to the first Die Hard.

Unknown was dogged by poor pacing and a contrived, unoriginal script.
People went in expecting Taken 2, before there was a Taken 2, and got The Fugitive meets The Bourne Identity, (which was The Fugitive meets The Man From Uncle, or some sh*t), sans all the action and lead-up of those two films.

I'll give it a see, probably on DVD, but I'll give it a watch.

Did somebody say Die Hard!? Lol..
Anyways, I'll be watching this. Ever since he did Taken he's become an action star that people like to watch.

The only thing this has in common with Air Force One is the terrible CGI airplanes. Can't they just spend $10 million to get one good shot of an airplane flying and one shot of it crashing and then every movie can just license that?

I really cant watch movies where all the "action" takes place all on the plane its usually so unrealistic and is always predictable...if the planes crashes 30 min in the movie then i could see it being a good movie but the whole f*cking time its on the plane and the plot is really not too clever not impressed..

"The only thing this has in common with Air Force One is the terrible CGI airplanes."
Wasn't comparing Air Force One to this movie. Wrong analogy. I was saying that Air Force One is basically Die Hard on a Plane, whereas this is Taken on a Plane, which is to say that Taken seems to be in some ways this era's version of Die Hard, although I will easily admit the former is inferior to the latter.
I can diagram the analogy if you would like, and in doing so you will see there is no line connecting Air Force One to Non-Stop.

@Cannon: I understand what you're saying, but half that sh*t was in Collet-Serra's Unknown, especially the nauseating oceanic color grading.

No SINGLE line/edge. Goddamned graph theory.
