Your heart, inevitably and sneakily, will eventually begin to swell -- perhaps not in a "Finding Nemo" kind of way but swell nonetheless.
January 26, 2021
There are three things that are inevitable in life: death, taxes and Liam Neeson movies in January.
January 26, 2021
The Marksman isn't exactly a bad film. If it was, I might have enjoyed it a lot more. It is merely a tired, under-inflated, woefully cliched and unadventurous one.
January 23, 2021
There's an odd comfort in these type of Neeson-led action films, and that feeling of familiarity manages to push The Marksman a little closer to his recommended target.
January 23, 2021
While that stuff might be new to this guy, we've seen it all before.
January 23, 2021
I'm not sure who's more tired, Liam Neeson playing another old war vet/cop/special-ops guy getting it up to beat the snot out of a bunch of rowdy upstarts or me, having to sit through another round of the same gummy mulch.
January 22, 2021
The predictable screenplay strings together cliches and contrivances without much regard for subtlety or surprise.
January 22, 2021
A dour, ponderous film, missing a lot that normally make this particular subgenre enjoyable.
January 22, 2021
This is a ponderous slog of a tale that rarely achieves anything close to a lasting impact.
January 22, 2021
The movie combines a soft-pedaled hot issue (illegal immigration) with a shopworn bouquet of rote chase-movie cliches.
January 21, 2021
Jim Hanson personal plight is made apparent within minutes of the opening credits and Liam Niesen gives him the gravitas of his conviction to save Manuel from harm.
January 21, 2021
The sight of Liam Neeson eating Pop-Tarts under a bridge seems like a particularly 2021 mood.
January 20, 2021
The latest in a string of recent action movies that frame the Mexico-United States border as a fraught psychic terrain for America's aging white male warrior class.

The Marksman is perfectly watchable old man reckoning cinema, held together by good performances by Liam Neeson and young Jacob Perez, but it's ultimately not much more than an assembly line of non-surprises.
January 19, 2021
Liam Neeson is reliably fine in this standard but watchable action flick.
January 18, 2021
A routine action pic that I can take or leave.
January 17, 2021
Of all the steadily slower-moving action pictures Liam Neeson has stumbled into the sunset with in the latter stages of his action hero career, "The Marksman" stands out as the stupidest.
January 16, 2021
With more plot holes than bullet holes, this marksman misses the target.
January 16, 2021
As a bare-minimum action flick, The Marksman is mostly serviceable.
January 16, 2021
It's not great, but "The Marksman" doesn't aim high and Lorenz smartly relies on Neeson's charm and Everyman heroics to counter.
