A Walk Among The Tombstones (2014) Review!!

A-Walk-Among-The-Tombstones-Movie-2014-HD-Wallpapers-02Synopsis – Private investigator Matthew Scudder is hired by a drug kingpin to find out who kidnapped and murdered his wife.

My Take –  Liam Neeson is awesome & yes he has nailed it again in this well crafted thriller!! Even though the initial plot is kinda of a cliche, but the intense & gritty setting of NYC manages to keep you hooked on for its nearly 120 minutes run time.

walk_a_0People who are looking for a “Taken” type of film will be quite disappointed, as this more of “The Grey” kind of film, in other words, less action more crime drama. There’s a slight humor added well to the on going proceedings by Brian “Astro” Bradley which is sure to be lapped up by everyone. I wasn’t particularly happy with David Harbour & Adam Thompson’s portrayals as the killers, but the grisly glimpses into the killers’ barbaric methods in bits and pieces are sure to churn your stomach.

tombstone_large-e1411319928169The real winner of this film is the brilliantly crafted screenplay & gritty direction of Scott Frank. Overall A Walk Among the Tombstones is a grim, mournful, and often graphically violent detective drama, which may not appeal to everyone, but being a fan of the detective noir genre, oh please give more!!
