In A Walk Among the Tombstones, Liam Neeson plays a run-down, ex-cop who now operates as a PI. He’s called in by a drug dealer to find his wife’s killer when……ok, you know what? Have you ever seen a movie with a detective in it? Ok, you’re good with this film then. It, even among Liam Neeson action movies, is particularly bad and he’s miscast and bad in the film. Neeson struggles with a New York accent that appears and disappears at random moments and if there is a cliche in the genre, it’s in this movie. Poorly written, badly directed and sadly acted by someone who should be doing something better. You know what? I think it’s time for an intervention.
Not pretty. You don’t want to end up like that! You’re Oskar Schindler! Qui-Gon Jinn, and Ras ‘al Ghul!
I understand that when Taken became an inexplicable hit, you were on the cutting edge, being the first lanky Irish action hero with a senior citizen’s discount IS something unique. So we’ll give you that one. But, man, you’re doing this twice a year now. I know they’re throwing sacks of cash at you, but I think this thing has run its course. You can be one of the best actors in Hollywood, but you’re literally morphing into Nicolas Cage before our very eyes and that we cannot have! Get out now! Someone give this man a decent script!
A Walk Among the Tombstones has absolutely nothing in it that I can recommend in any way. It makes Non-Stop look like Citizen Kane. Save yourself the two hours I’ll never get back
