Liam Neeson is back on home soil and his family is once again in peril. To make matters worse, he gets framed and has to track down the villains, while eluding the police. This is very much a by-the-numbers action flick with a hero who’s impervious to bullets, falls and anything else that would hurt an ordinary person. The endless chases and fights are shot and edited with that slice-and-dice technique that makes it impossible to see what’s really happening…just a blur of activity. In its favor, the pace is brisk.

 

3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)

  1. I think I’ll skip seeing this one. Never mind the tiresome formula Hollywood action film structure; I can’t stand the manic machine-gun style 100 frames-per-second technique that is used so often these days in high-tension scenes.

    • I think it’s a lazy way to avoid having to stage or show real action. It’s much easier to whip the camera around and cut real fast, than to make the action real and exciting. I blame the Bourne series for starting this trend.
