“The image has dynamic momentum for the primary hour, helped alongside by a reputable efficiency from Liotta, who’s at all times greatest when completely fried with panic […] The second half of Unforgettable dissolves right into a puddle of clichés, unhealthy performing, logic holes, and crummy screenwriting…”

“Actually, Unforgettable is properly put collectively – properly directed, properly edited and properly photographed. Nevertheless, the theme of the serum that permits folks to relive different’s reminiscences is a well-worn one – one which, just like the precognition thriller, has been overused […] One stored hoping that Unforgettable would do one thing new and unique with the thought.” Moria

“Like every good over-the-top mad scientist movie, Unforgettable options every part and extra, together with exploding labs, chase scenes, a shootout at a church baptism, a girl taped to a chair in a burning room, a mass killing in a drugstore, adultery, alcoholism and damaged marriages. On high of that, every time the story will get a bit uninteresting or Dahl decides that (for no matter purpose) a shock is required, Briggs has an surprising flashback or hallucination.” A Wasted Life


Modern opinions:
” …a fairly twisted story, contrived however entertaining.”

“On a purely visceral degree, the film works higher. At its greatest, Unforgettable recollects prime Hitchcock in the way in which it reveals nice suspense in acquainted conditions, reminiscent of an extended foot chase and a grocery store theft. The performances are sturdy, too. Liotta is a perfect alternative: Even at his most sympathetic, he appears able to nice evil — he has the eyes of a madman — however the film settles the difficulty of his culpability too early.” The Miami Herald, February 23, 1996

“Although it’s properly made, Unforgettable can also be gimmicky, with an excessive amount of of the plot revolving round voyeuristic methods […] Insanely far-fetched as that is, it’s hardly uninteresting. Mr Dahl’s visible creativeness is in high quality kind, even when his storytelling reveals no nice eagerness to flee from the B-movie sphere.” The New York Instances, February 23, 1996

“In a lightning sequence of cuts, Dahl reveals three issues: the homicide, the homicide from the angle of the sufferer (which is what Krane is seeing), and Krane. The scene is good and harrowing — and much more harrowing for the emotional element. For a great 45 minutes of its two-hour operating time, Unforgettable has the viewer in a state of oppressive rigidity. The remainder of the time you’re simply nervous.” San Francisco Chronicle, July 26, 1996
