Kelly Lynch in Persons Unknown

Question: why is a tightly plotted thriller with a relatively well-known cast relegated to a video-only release in Scotland? Answer: it didn't make big bucks at the US box office. Its foreign financial prospects, therefore, were


Persons Unknown does have the feel of a ’straight-to-video’ movie. Perhaps it's the somewhat unoriginal story, beginning with a heist, followed by a chase here between thieves and drug dealers culminating in a violent climax. Perhaps it's the film's low budget look: unimpressive locations, fuzzy dialogue and a cheap synthesised music score.

However, the modest production values do add to the appropriately seedy atmosphere, while the story eschews a gimmick or concept, instead drawing strength from its characters. In fact, the plot is driven by them, low-lifes and losers: an ex-cop, a corrupt cop and two sisters, one a drug addict, the other an embittered and handicapped hit-and-run victim.

These characters are fleshed out by a fine cast including David Mamet favourite Joe Mantegna, Kelly Lynch, Naomi Watts and the late, great JT Walsh. However, George Hickenlooper's film (he previously directed the startling Apocalypse Now documentary Hearts Of Darkness) is merely solid and uninspired. We’re deep in B-movie territory here.
