Mr. Moviefone reviews 'Unknown' 'I Am Number Four' and 'Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.'
This week at the movies, "Big Mama" is back, the "Number Four" is the loneliest number, and Liam Neeson stars in the Bourne saltimatum!
Neeson is on a psychological thrill ride to prove his identity in "Unknown." He plays a doctor on a trip to Berlin who wakes up from a taxi crash to discover that another man is living his life and his wife doesn't recognize him. The police think he's crazy and assassins are on his tail. His only ally in unraveling the mystery is a taxi driver (played by Diane Kruger).
Also featured are January Jones, Frank Langella and Aidan Quinn.
The Reel Deal: Do you feel like Liam Neeson is making the same movie over and over again? He is. And "Taken," uh, I mean "Unknown" is another decent, big studio, by-the-numbers thriller that fans are gonna like. I'm in.
From the bestselling book, an alien teenager is being hunted in "I Am Number Four."
Alex Pettyfer plays one of nine aliens with supernatural abilities being hunted on earth by hostile assassins. The problem is that the first three are dead and he is number four.
The movie stars Timothy Olyphant, Dianna Agron and is rated PG-13.
The Reel Deal: Very simply put "I Am Number Four" is a number 2. I'm out.
Martin Lawrence is putting on the fat old lady suit again in "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son."
This time, the FBI agent is assigned to track down a murderer. But to get to the suspect, he assumes his spunky granny alias to go inside an all girls school with his nephew.
The Reel Deal: Really? Still doin' that? Well no big surprise, critics didn't get an early look at the new big mama movie so I'm neither out nor in. Just completely indifferent.
