When it comes to thrillers, the movies that first come to mind from the recent past are – Sin City 2, Prisoners, Now You See Me, Taken etc. But this film – A Walk Among the Tombstones – leaves a predictably dry after-taste.

Liam Neeson taps into the same grit and determination that he did for his role in Taken, but this movie seems like a distant cousin of the former. Tombstones follows a pattern that you might recognize from some of Neeson`s recent work, but there are many aspects that make this well-made film also quite refreshing, with some interesting turns.

When prominent drug trafficker Kenny Kristo (a woefully underused Dan Stevens) hires Neeson to track down the men who murdered his wife, it soon becomes apparent that this crime is linked to a series of other grisly murders in the city. ...Read full review
Though it looks similar to Taken, Unknown and other movies in which Liam Neeson plays a renegade enforcer tracking down the missing, A Walk Among the Tombstones has more to it. ...Read full review
