Dying three deaths: killing Danny (Shawn's baby boy & only son); killing his BFF (his only real friend) & dying saving his son(x2), right after having gained a foothold in his heart and had, finally been accepted by his family. No man could endure all of that and survive.Also: relentless Terminator-like Andrew Price with its Scorsese-red death-laser always pointing across the foggy woods hell bent on killing Mike?</3
Liam Neeson proves once again why he's so good at playing the tortured patriarch who always has his children's interests in mind...if only they'd listen to him! It's as though Neeson has become a stand-in for baby boomers everywhere, reminding younger generations that - sure, they may be the alcoholics who bankrupted a nation and polluted the planet - but at the end of the day, the fact remains: Father Knows Best.
This is just another Liam Neeson movie, but better than all the bullshit like NonStop, Taken 2 and A Walk Amoung the Tombstones. It's cool, it has some good elements (especially the cast). Enjoyable for a saturday night.
Solid thriller with some good acting and chemistry between Neeson and Harris. The rest of the cast does good work as well. The plot is kinda bland but the scriptwriting keeps the tropes somewhat fresh. The problem is that the movie is too long and starts to drag after the hour mark. While the photo is great I found the score by Junkie XL to be really boring. All in all a good time at the cinema.
I was fooled by some positive reviews concerning this film. It is true that character development turned out well in the case of explaining why how what but presenting a story seen so many times before kind of killed the hope of this becoming a good, fresh, intense and involving film. Did hope for so much more. Felt like watching the warrior meets man on fire.
