Unknown Review


Very Good
The way it plays out is elegantly simple: Five men find themselves in a warehouse unsure of who they are or how they got there. One of the men is tied to a chair. One is handcuffed to a railing and has been shot in the shoulder. One has a broken nose. The remaining two are bruised and bloodied. The warehouse is secured with bulletproof glass and bars. It's in a desert somewhere. There is no hope of escape.

As the men talk memories filter back slowly: The man in the jean jacket (Jim Caviezel, Passion of the Christ) recalls a violent kidnapping, the man with the broken nose (Greg Kinnear) recalls running, the man in the rancher shirt (Barry Pepper) is sure he can only trust one of them. They cannot decide if they should free the bound man (Joe Pantoliano) or help the handcuffed man (Jeremy Sisto) who is barely conscious. These desperate men slowly come to the realization that they are all involved in a kidnapping that went horribly awry. The question is: Who are the kidnappers and who are the kidnapped?

Kissing A Fool Review


Weak
Droll and patently unbelievable, Kissing a Fool invites you to believe that David Schwimmer is a sports buff and, ya know, a real ladies' man. If you find Schwimmer the sexy type, Fool will be right up your alley. If, like the rest of us, you think lil' Dave is a geek -- and you find the "I'm testing my fiancee to see if she'll cheat on me" plot to be distasteful -- then you may want to pass. A few moments of watchability (and the pleasingly pretty Avital) punctuated by flat jokes a movie do not make.
