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

  • Oct 19, 2017
    As far as crime/thrillers go this is a by the book film, Typical and predictable plot but it was very well done and gripping, Liam Neeson puts in one of his best performances and carries the film most of the time, There's little action but it didn't need much, I had little interest in watching this film but I found it pretty good after having no expectations for it, It can be slow at times but if you're a fan of a well told noir style thrillers then this film is right up your street.

    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.

    A very well made crime thriller. A Walk Among the Tombstones kept me invested throughout the entire run time of the film, featuring Liam Neeson who is great as usual, very dark tone and a well written script. Despite being kind of cliché I still enjoyed this film for what it was going for. Check it out.

    I had such high hopes for this movie.When I 1st saw the trailer I couldn't wait to see it.Now after watching A Walk Among The Tombstones I'm so disappointed.It was an OK movie (I guess) but it's not something I'd watch again anytime soon.I might watch it again in a couple years if there's nothing else on or I'm in a mood but that's it.Even then I'd probably try & find something better to watch.I think my main problem with the movie wasn't that it was slow at times but that it was too gruesome.Some scenes just had me cringing & seemed too real.1 thing I'm truly happy about is that I got to see this movie for free & didn't have to pay a thing to watch it.I can only imagine how disappointed I'd be if I had to pay to see it.The best thing about A Walk Among The Tombstones was definitely the trailer
