Review: A Walk Among the Tombstones, 2014, dir. Scott Frank

“From a distance, A Walk Among the Tombstones looks an awful lot like “generic Liam Neeson actioner #1,075″, but that’s only a half-accurate first impression. Oh, Neeson grumbles and sneers, dispassionate to the world around him and ambivalent about his mortality, a stereotypical hard-boiled badass; he’s seen it all, and he cares little about anything that doesn’t tie into the storm cloud of veiled ennui that hovers over him for the bulk of the movie. He also takes his morning coffee with two shots of whiskey, which is either a nod to his law enforcement background or his national heritage. (Maybe both.)” (Read the rest at Movie Mezzanine.)
