i wrote a long review but it disapeared This is a very average movie. and the weakest of all the post taken movies liam has starred in. its all justall to convenient story development wise. and if you think he kicks ass he doesn't really in this movie. The equalizer that came out this year is far better and thats not exactly wonderful. This movie is a walk to nowhere really. the best part is the serial killers but they dont get a chance to be truely brtual due to the cert. so like the rest of the movie not much happens

'A Walk Among the Tombstones' is the perfect example of a familiar genre story, seen many times, done proficiently well. Many archetypal moments avert the usual cliches by being more grounded. This is a dark, gritty, adult tale. The detective angle drives the plot through the usual turns. A good watch.

A Walk Among The Tombstones

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 defi...

An old-fashioned detective story

"You want your money or you wanna be looking behind you for the rest of your worthless life? Do this deal and I'll sit on what I know about you. You can take your little Bert and Ernie act to the other side of the country. There's plenty of dope dealers in LA."

Strange but true. I haven't seen any of the "Taken" movies where Liam Neeson first must rescue his daughter Kim out of the hands of Albanian kidnappers, then he and his ex-wife are kidnapped by the same Albanian gang and finally he must track down the person who murdered his ex-wife. Each film was about family related crimes. Now in "A Walk Among the Tombstones" the wife and the daughter of a drug dealer are abducted and Neeson uses the experience he gained at the New York police. It's not that I av...

This is a good watch.

In this film Liam Neeson is playing... Liam Neeson, like always.

The film is about a 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.

The one thing that I didn't see coming was how dark the was movie. The villains in the film are just the worst human beings on the face of the earth. There where creepy people and overall terrible p...

Not Very Interesting

A Walk Among The Tombstones is incredibly “meh,” While certainly enjoyable, the movie isn’t very exceptional. People who read my reviews regularly may remember that I made a similar accusation of The Drop, but when compared to “Tombstones” The Drop looks like an avant gard masterpiece.

I think that the closest comparable title to “Tombstones” in recent years is Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners from 2013. they’re both dark brooding noir-infused dramas about investigations involving missing people. Heck, For all intents and purposes they are the same movie, especially in the eyes of the movie going public.

The difference between the two is that while “tombstones” in certainly entertaining, it’s not really anything more then that. Watching Prisoners was not only engrossing but emotion...
