The topic: Advance screening: A Walk Among the Tombstones


Great movie! I've always liked Liam Neeson and he does well in this type of role.

If you've watched any of the trailers, you know he's an ex-cop who quit because a child was killed by a ricochet bullet during a shoot out with bad guys. He quits drinking and becomes an unlicensed private investigator.

He attends AA meetings and it's here that one of the members follows him and asks Scudder (Neeson) to help his brother (Kenny), who's wife had been kidnapped and murdered, even though the ransom had been paid. Scudder was reluctant to help once he found the source of his brother's income (drugs). He turned down the job.

Later, Kenny shows up at Scudder's house and makes his case for Scudder's help. He has a tape the kidnappers left for him of his wife's murder. Scudder hears it and takes the case. 

Doing some research, he finds this isn't the first time this type of kidnapping has happened and it became obvious who the kidnappers are targeting. Loved ones of rich drug dealers; the dealers would be less likely to call in law enforcement. That's a bare bones description of the movie, there's a lot more going on. It was intense, very violent, with moments of humorous dialog (the witty P.I.).

The story started with action and kept it up throughout the entire show. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm glad we went. 

Two thumbs up.
