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.
January 16, 2021
Googling things to see along Route 66 is more entertaining than "The Marksman."
January 16, 2021
The Marksman is destined to become TV fodder for disinterested dad's approaching their nap time.
January 16, 2021
A Clint Eastwood reject.
January 16, 2021
Thanks to Robert Lorenz's smooth, simple direction and Neeson's appealing, sympathetic bond with young Perez, this action-thriller, which is steeped in cliché from top to bottom, very nearly gets by.

The only people who might like this movie are those who can't get enough of [Liam] Neeson recycling his same 'defiant loner' persona in yet another stale action flick.
January 16, 2021
It's not unappealing, especially for those who enjoy watching Neeson go through his thriller period, happy to play crusty guys facing direct challenges to personal honor.
January 15, 2021
Not a great movie, but courtesy of director Robert Lorenz, a lean, plausibly entertaining one with all the fixin's and none of the extra flab of deep, incisive meaning.
January 15, 2021
Liam Neeson shoots more swarthy people in "The Marksman." Zzzz.
January 15, 2021
There are too many scenes of Hanson and the boy on the run being chased by members of the drug cartel who are better equipped to find them than all of the law enforcement agencies in America.
January 15, 2021
If Neeson is determined to continue his pursuit of being the most unlikely action star of our time, he really needs to start finding better material.
January 15, 2021
Neeson puts in another fine performance as an average guy thrust into a situation he wasn't looking for. There's plenty of action and heart as the film tackles family, honor, and immigration.
January 15, 2021
There's not much to the character Neeson plays, or anyone else in the film, for that matter.
January 15, 2021
But then, we know how it's all going to end. Try as Maurico might, he's no match for American ... pride? Resolve? Plot contrivances? Even so, there's ultimately precious little marksman-ing on display.
January 15, 2021
A low-key chase film built on the personal salvation of a child in trouble, it plays with stereotypes in a way that's less 'messing around with archetypes' and more 'lazily indulging in cliché as a shorthand for actual character work.'
