I saw Unknown at the weekend and thought it was pretty good, though not quite as good as Taken. But then I probably shouldn’t even compare them as they were completely different films, the only similarities being Liam Neeson and being set in European towns.
Though after comparing the posters, is it any surprise I had preconceptions of what to expect. See below...

Forgetting the shades of colour, they’re pretty much exactly the same, even with the strip of scenes across the middle. Don’t you just hate it when movie marketers use a previous films success and tone to sell you a new one? Even if it’s completely different?
