Underrated Movie #279 ~ Unknown

Unknown
A seemingly disparate group of men wake up in a locked-down warehouse with no knowledge of who they are or how they ended up in their present situation. The strangers must work together to figure out who’s who in order to escape. (Netflix) Starring Jim Caviezel, Greg Kinnear, Bridget Moynahan, Joe Pantoliano, Barry Pepper, Jeremy Sisto, and Peter Stormare (this is NOT the Liam Neeson movie of the same name). Maybe one twist too many at the end, but this is a very good independent thriller. My Rating: 4.25 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #278 ~ Rogue Trader

Rogue Trader
Based on a true story, this absorbing drama stars Ewan McGregor as a hotshot futures trader whose high-risk financial activities ultimately result in the collapse of England’s oldest and most respected merchant bank. (Netflix) It’s always interesting when you’re watching a “crime” movie and you find yourself rooting for the criminal to not get caught. This is a good little overlooked thriller that has some tense moments. My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars.
