Action, Crime drama, Mystery
A return to form is always welcome, and so it is for both Liam Neeson and the hard-boiled cop drama with “A Walk Among the Tombstones.” A throwback to the New York detective movies of the 1970s, “Tombstones” is methodically paced and bruising in its approach. Neeson plays a retired NYPD officer hired by a drug dealer to track down the men who kidnapped his wife, collected a ransom and brutally killed her anyway. This movie doesn’t stop with the cause-effect simplicity of “Taken,” but instead dives into the detective’s own shortcomings while the mystery slowly unfolds. There’s an actual investigation and not just a parade of action scenes for the sake of having action scenes. “A Walk Among the Tombstones” may not be an all-timer, but it’s a very nice surprise and a sturdy cop movie that should hold up better than most of its contemporaries.

Portland Mercury Old School A world-weary Walk Among the Tombstones. by Andrew Wright 09/17/2014
Connect Savannah Review: A Walk Among The Tombstones Unlike past Neeson actioners in which he's providing catharsis by bloodily dispatching evildoers every couple of scenes, this is a slow-burn that doesn't provide much relief until late in the game. by Matt Brunson 09/16/2014
