A Walk Among The Tombstones (Liam Neeson)

Trailer starts off looking like another Taken type flick but seems like it may have a bit more depth, could be promising.

Definitely seems to have a darker tone. I hope he still have his special sets of skills.

Similar to Taken in certain elements, but with more dramatic undertones - looks to have potential!

Dreary and lethargically paced. If one likes atmosphere for atmosphere's sake, it might be passable. A distant second to Non-Stop which wasn't all that good.

Worse than Non-Stop? Ouch. I did not like that one. This one looked pretty good.

I think most people are expecting another Taken with lots of action but theres very little of it, just a few scenes. Its worth a watch.

Unfortunately, the actual movie didn't deliver what would have been hoped for via the trailer. This is one of many movies that not much would have been missed by seeing via a rental.

I didn't care for Non-Stop either. Looks like this will be a rental.

Damn, I had high hopes on this. I think the Taken as a concept has some legs to evolve into something more than just rescuing daughter and wife over and over.

I need your sweet love, Rosetta Stone girl!

I guess I will end up seeing it on blu-ray. Such a shame that this second attempt to adapt Scudder also looks like a one-and-done. That book series has such potential.

Lawrence Block's Kelp series would also provide great source material but I'm not confident they could pull that off either.

Took a walk among the tombstones with Liam tonite.


Some cliches, some eye-rolling, but better than most of the tripe he has been putting out since his wife died.
I dunno....I'm guessing the book was better than its movie adaptation.
Feeling generous, I would give it 5 out of 10 plastic bags.


LN really needs to stop with his Eastwood/Bronson shtick...he's just too old now.
There is a scene where he is attempting to chase a baddie down a street.
Instead of actually running (as the script no doubt indicates), he shuffles.
Ms. Oink thought this was very funny; I thought it was just sad.

Swine are good people too.

Redboxed this a few weeks back. I think it's a solid pri-eye flick, but would only watch again if it came on TV. Good, but not special.
