Frank's film is much more of a noir outing than a straight action feature, and Neeson slips right into the tone and feel of the hard-boiled detective offering.

As a throwback to a type of nasty, ugly crime film of yesteryear, A Walk Among the Tombstones cleans up.
January 6, 2015
As nauseating as the film's inventive sadisms can be, Frank succeeds far more in the details than in the larger picture that tries to relate this world to ours.

While we're waiting for the release of Taken 3, the man who was Oskar Schindler is keeping us in an action hero frame of mind with the moody-but-essentially-empty A Walk Among the Tombstones.

Neeson virtually ensures the quality of most of what he's in.

As usual, Neeson gives a more thoughtful performance than the material deserves.

Only Liam Neeson can wear a brown corduroy car-coat with such menace or give off such world-weary ennui just before going into action. A Walk Among the Tombstones is one of his better films in a while, certainly compared to the Taken series.

If this is your kind of movie, it's hard to find one better made.

You expect a thriller from a movie like this, but the further into the case Scudder trudges, the more soundly and unexpectedly Tombstones is able to hit the sweet spot of any good suspense film: the pit of your stomach.

The film portrays grimy, late-1990s Brooklyn in atmospheric fashion, throwing in shots of run-down tenements, graffiti-strewn walls, disused parking lots and sprawling cemeteries. The plotting is less assured.

This is a stylish and smart thriller.
September 19, 2014
It's clear from the sunless palette and the measured, one-thing-after-another pacing that Frank loves Block's work, and that goes a long way. The performances go a long way, too.
September 19, 2014
Besides being a dynamite thriller, it gives something not insubstantial as an extra.

Overplotted and underexplained ...

This ghost of a movie star is never more at home than when walking among the tombstones.
September 19, 2014
It has the steady pace of a police procedural, with a flawed but noble hero and the colorful lowlifes that populate any hard-boiled mystery scribe's world.
September 19, 2014
Frank ... keeps things tense enough that we may not have time to notice one or two failings in the script.
September 18, 2014
Teaming a tarnished hero with violated bad guys is a compelling idea, and ought to make for more sparks than we get here.
September 18, 2014
"A Walk Among the Tombstones" is the creepiest film I've seen in quite some time, and that's not meant as a compliment.
September 18, 2014
Frank mostly overdoses on portentousness as he roots his solid hero in a city that fears coming to pieces.
