Synopsis


A Walk Among the Tombstones
A heroin trafficker whose wife was abducted and murdered hires a haunted private investigator to track down the men who killed her in this brooding crime drama starring Liam Neeson. Matt Scudder (Neeson) was an NYPD cop having a quiet drink in a Washington Heights bar when a pair of armed robbers came in guns blazing. Giving chase, Scudder kills the robbers in the street, though a stray bullet turns a heroic moment tragic. Devastated, Scudder subsequently goes to work as an unlicensed private detective, working just outside of the law and surviving on generous gifts offered in exchange for his services. Now, tasked with rooting out the sadistic thugs who brutally murdered the wife of a wealthy drug dealer (Dan Stevens), Scudder scours the bars and back alleys of New York City in search of his elusive targets -- and the closer he gets, the more apparent it becomes that they are something much more sinister than your typical kidnappers. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I am a big Liam fan... This movie had alot of action & adventure in it too... I remember him in "KRULL" from way back in the day (1983, I think) whereas he's a very good actor & you should purchase this Blu Ray from BestBuy for your movie collection especially for "TAKEN" Fans... I would definitely recommend the purchase of this movie at BestBuy to family & friends for sure... The graphics & sound were so much better than in the movies.. The only two other things that can top this is not if I would've brought this movie in 3D Blu Ray as well as WHEN BestBuy bring back "UPGRADE & SAVE" so that I could've saved some additional money on this purchase...

    Because it was Liam Neeson in the lead, I somehow expected an action shoot-em up. It wasn't quite that! A crime thriller, certainly, and with plenty of gun play to touch my expectations. I enjoyed this modest movie. Liam turned in his usual precise-character performance that never fails to convince me he's who he says he is. There were other notable portrayals but he held this one together. The movie got progressively bloodier, which wasn't easy considering the nature of the crime he was investigating anyway. And the ending was as satisfying as getting that really hard 'burp!" out of your system; not nice but really relieving. I'd recommend this one for a good stint in drama and not-so-good vs evil.

    Liam delivers in a grim crime story

    This is not a full-blown action flick so don't expect car chases and Liam popping off the thugs every ten minutes. It takes it's time and let's the viewer ponder for a slower paced but gritty ride. It does have some violent images and acts that will stick in your head. Liam plays the investigator with cool swagger as he navigates the seedy areas of NY to find two maniac serial killers. If you enjoy the thriller genre or true crime stories you should enjoy Tombstones. It's similar in tone with Silence Of The Lambs, Prisoners, Seven. The on location shots of decaying cities in NY really added to the feel of the story.

    Neesen does it again

    "A Walk Among the Tombstones" starts out as another Film Noir-ish Liam Neeson action thriller. But this movie has a bit more to offer. Neeson turns in a solid performance, backed by a good supporting cast that features Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as a sympathetic drug trafficker and a couple of really vicious bad guys. The plot keeps throwing out one-off twists, and there is an interesting AA theme threaded through the story. The movie's slow delivery takes full advantage of the New York City setting with some meditative camera work. This might be a formula movie, but the delivery is good and the suspense is great. Recommended as good entertainment.

    This is a 3.5 to 4 star movie set in 1999 with an old fashion formula detective mystery story line adapted from one of Lawrence Block's mystery novels. Matt Scudder (Liam Neeson), an unlicensed P.I. and ex-cop suffering from his own demons, agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and brutally murdered his wife. As Scudder investigates the crime he discovers another victim has been kidnapped. The line between right and wrong blurs as he races to save the the latest victim before she is brutally killed. Blu-ray 2.40:1 format with limited extra features.

    Sticks With You

    This is a film I feel like you have to watch more than once to appreciate it. My first viewing of this left me a little disappointed because I was expecting a typical Liam Neeson movie--action packed and fast paced. A Walk Among the Tombstones definitely isn't that. It's more of a psychological thriller/drama type. There are a few scenes in the movie that are a little hard to stomach, but I feel like all of the actor's did a really good job. It's a subtle film that doesn't hit you at first, but sticks with you after you watch it.

    Typical Storyline

    Just a so-so movie with a typical storyline. Liam Neeson does a mediocre job of convincing us that he is a bada**. Denzel Washington, John Travolta or even Bruce Willis would have done the role more justice. I also have an issue with Neeson's political speech regarding how bad guns are, people are the issue guns, knives, ballbats or lemons are just tools they choose to use. Producers need to choose actors who have an appreciation for guns and the 2nd amendment, let Neeson act in movies he can relate to like "The Internship", more his style.

    A Walk Among The Tombstones stars Liam Neeson as a private detective who is hired by a drug-lord to investigate the murder of his wife and what he discovers goes deeper than what he sees. First of all, don't compare this to some of Neeson's latest popular movies such as Taken and Unknown. This is different. It's not an action movie. It is supposed to be a thriller but it is not the kind of thriller that gets you on the edge of your seat. This is more like a drama type of movie.
