A Walk Among the Tombstones

Private investigator Matthew Scudder is hired by a drug kingpin to find out who kidnapped and murdered his wife. 

A Walk Among the Tombstones is directed by Scott Franck and is starring Dan Stevens and Liam Neeson. First sight I thought this movie would be as badass as Taken and The Equalizer but it's not, this movie is more of an investigative movie; in which Liam Neeson's character is this private investigator and he is connecting the dots. This movie takes it time that's why sometime you feel like the film is two and a half hour long but it's not. It's nice to see Liam Neeson actually playing an other role than this orderly badass we used to, here he's the main guy in an investigative role, properly acting. He's good. Even if the action is not here. Villains are creepy dick heads, but not in a right way. In fact in a movie like this you have to make your villain character functional, someone you feel really uncomfortable with on screen. 

Overall A Walk Among the Tombstones might not be what you thought if you're expecting an other The Equalizer movie or something like that: it's not. It doesn't move quickly, sometimes it's even slow but there are some interesting investigation scenes where you are able to see the actual investigation and those dots pieces together.
