A Walk Among the Tombstones

Critics Consensus

A Walk Among the Tombstones doesn't entirely transcend its genre clichés, but it does offer Liam Neeson one of his more compelling roles in recent memory, and that's often enough.

Movie Info

Based on Lawrence Block's bestselling series of mystery novels, A Walk among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson as Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime...nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again. (C) Universal

Audience Reviews for A Walk Among the Tombstones

½

A bit of a homage (in a good way) to noir as Neeson fleshes out a husk of a man playing at being a private detective on a case he doesn't want, for people he doesn't like. It's a better film than the other reviews here would indicate, and a damn sight better than those Taken films.

½

Taking place in a pre-9/11 NYC, this conventional and unsurprising thriller seems dated like a revival of the TV series Millennium (despite its great cinematography), and even the juxtaposition of freeze-framed action with a voice-over about the 12 steps of AA feels bland and arbitrary.

½

A forgettable noir concerning a veteran, beat-up detective (Liam Neeson) who takes on a case of a missing woman in New York City for a wealthy drug kingpin. While Neeson is his regular outstanding self, the rest of the supporting cast is desperately lacking. Overall, this movie just feels like an extended version of a "Law and Order" episode, due to its relentlessly dour and dark subject matter and cold, calculated plot line. Unfortunately, this is just a very predictable movie that does not offer a lot of surprises, and that is why it is completely missable.

Meh. Not a bad film, just so solidly clichéd. Psychopaths, ransoms, stand-offs, damsels in distress, age-weary cops with young partners, you name it... they even had to set it in the late 90s just so they could imitate the thrillers made back then.
