The story is sometimes confusing too because, at times, Liota's own flashbacks are interpolated into the flashbacks of a couple of murder victims, so it's hard to tell whose memory (or insight) we're witnessing.

I certainly did, though stuck it out for the fairly predictable conclusion.

The second thing is that in some sections the tone is slightly confusing due to some hammy acting from particularly person who feels grossly out of place in this film, Christopher McDonald, who feels very out of place as Steward.

All in all,it's an entertaining movie,mixing smartly sci-fi,thriller,and whodunit.

So, instead, you have an entertaining diversion that you will never have to see again after you see it the first time.

I actually found the second half of the film quite a bit more compelling than the first half, and things really picked up at the half way mark, as we begin to understand more about the night David's wife dies.

A very exciting thriller with sci fi angle .

It puts all sorts of unbearable strain on his heart and he undergoes all the emotions associated with being murdered.

Intriguing high concept thriller .

it dragged.

Entertaining sci-fi thriller .

But somewhere along the way it got predictable and then they didn't know how to end it.

He relies too much on cliched gimmicks (mainly "shocking" illusions and dreams), and his plodding pacing only induces impatience on the viewer's part, which is the last thing a good mystery needs.

And most of the scenes were dreary lab/hospital scenes, with needles and injections, and repetitive flashbacks of crimes having been committed.

And when I say predictable, I mean reeeeally predictable.

It is very intense, full of suspense- very clever.

It's stunning when,in the end,the two stories come together,this time recalling "dead again" (K.

all of them very entertaining films.

Another Entertaining Dahl-Directed Thriller .

Engaging, Complicated.

So i recommend you all to sit back on your bed and watch an entertaining movie like this which is unique.

Reasonably enjoyable thriller that almost manages to shake off it's central terrible idea .

:) The unexpected changes in the scenes...

This would be best for the first-time viewer, but I still have enjoyed it the three times I've seen it.

Liotta demonstrates his own unique brand of acting here and is perfectly cast as Doctor Krane, an intense, paranoid man on a mission of justice whose experiments with the unknown matter lead to a rapidly deteriorating physical condition.

What a thrilling surprise.

It was a fun thrilling ride.

I highly recommend Unforgettable to people who may be new to Argento, thanks to the DVD revolution making so many of his films available for the first time in an uncut format, especially if said people would like some insight into just what they find so fascinating in his work.

He plays the role vulnerable - yet tough intense and mysterious.

Tedious .

Dahl's direction is leaden and every character is dull.

I would have given this an average 5 stars, but could not do so, as this just dragged on and on and on.

This film is a heck of a lot better than another Ray Liotta film where he generally plays a good guy, which for me, was middling and kind of boring for the most part.
