The Marksman Reviews

It does do a decent job of being reasonably enjoyable without being actively evil, if that's what you're after.

How much you enjoy The Marksman will depend on how much you like to see Neeson taking the law into his own gnarled hands. There's tension in the story, to be sure, but not a lot of depth of character.

Even if you're tired of this fare, you could do a lot worse than get stuck watching The Marksman.
April 1, 2021
Director Lorenz's actioner is passable but both the film and star Liam Neeson show signs of genre fatigue.
March 14, 2021
In the end, The Marksman is a good movie, but not great. Neeson elevates the film and keeps it from going over-the-top into absurdity.
February 21, 2021
The Marksman isn't a particularly good or bad film.
February 21, 2021
Yet another thoroughly by-the-numbers action movie that only seems to exist so that it can star Neeson.

Liam Neeson stars in a Clint Eastwood movie.
January 30, 2021
Despite its head-fake toward current-events relevance, "The Marksman" is a serviceable road thriller that demonstrates that Liam Neeson is slowly, inexorably, morphing into Clint Eastwood.
January 30, 2021
There's a daftness to even the less surehanded Eastwood films that Lorenz, as a man of merely 55 years, cannot seem to replicate naturally.
January 29, 2021
It's watchable, but not in any way necessary.

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.

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.
