Liam Neeson takes on Kidnappers again in ‘A Walk Among Tombstones’ (Official Trailer & Poster)

A Walk Among The Tombstones

Liam Neeson and kidnappers; that sounds as good as peanut butter and jelly. The two go together well and so far always makes for a great movie. A Walk Among Tombstones sees Neeson playing an ex cop turn unlicensed private eye who helps a drug trafficker after a ransom deal has gone bad. If that sounds like it can be a series of novels, it’s because it is. The character Matt Scudder is from Lawrence Block’s best selling series of mystery novels that this movie is adapted from.

Neeson takes on the role as a scruffy, down on his luck average Joe like a pro and in typical Neeson fashion his character, turns out to be a bad ass.  Neeson is getting paid to be Neeson.

The screenplay is written by Scott frank who has a crazy resume: The Wolverine, Marley & Me, Minority Report, Get Shorty and Out of Sight to mention a few. If this movie is half as good as the novels then it should be great.  Oliver Stone took a stab with Jeff Bridges as Matt Scudder back in 1986’s 8 Million Ways to Die and it was awful.  From the looks of the trailer, it looks like Hollywood got it right this time.
