The Worst Film Ever
Such a frustrating disappointment
So much average
Ok... Let's be honest. It cannot be the best movie but is quite enjoyable. The movie has the potential to develop a great plot for future movies
"Danny Maguire" (Boyd Holbrook) is the impetuous son of a mob boss who wants to show his father "Shawn Maguire" (Ed Harris) his ability to assume an increasing role in the business. So one day he makes a deal with an Albanian drug cartel by guaranteeing them his father's resources in exchange for some money. However, when his father refuses to do business with them this leaves Danny in a bind and rather than return the money decides to kill the Albanian negotiators instead. Unfortunately, Danny is spotted by a young man named "Mike Conlon" (Joel Kinnaman) and rather than having any witnesses decides to kill him as well. What Danny doesn't count on is Mike's father--and infamous mob hit man-- "Jimmy Conlon" (Liam Neeson) showing up during the process. Within seconds Danny is killed and this leaves both Jimmy and Mike at odds with Shawn who now swears revenge on both of them. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a pretty good action-packed movie which greatly benefited by the presence of Liam Neeson and Ed Harris. Although the ending was a bit clichéd I still enjoyed it and I have rated this film accordingly. Slightly above average.
This film has one major strength – the beautiful photography from Martin Rhue. Otherwise it is a pretty ordinary brutal gangster drama with plenty of violence, lots of "tough guy" talk, accompanied by stabbing, shooting, strangling, and thumping. There is the requisite car chase sequence that is hard to believe, just as it is hard to believe that a hopeless drunk and washed-up hit man can suddenly transform into a death dealing-fighting machine who takes on all comers and kills them all.Films like this require some suspension of belief, but this one requires too much.The acting is pretty good, although Bruce McGill is completely wasted and Joel Kinnaman is really not suited to the role.
Great actors, great action doesn't save this unbelievable mish mash of a dozen other gangster movie cliché . Ed Harris replays his fine role as the Hell's Kitchen chieftain "Frank" from the 1990 State of Grace, just he's in the wrong movie trilogy. Then it all just goes south very quickly into fantasy-land. The father son team of Liam Neeson & pouty face Hayden Christensen (I think?) strut around New York taking Planes, Trains & Automobiles after killing gangsters,corrupt cops & drug dealers all the while being shown on the 7 O'Clock News as the killers on the run. Liam's in a dirty army jacket,his face all cut & angry looking and no New Yorker notices his face looks exactly like America's Most Wanted. ,that just ruined it for me. Now The Ex Hit-man killer Liam Neeson must take at least 5 or 6 taxi rides from Queens to upstate New York without being bothered by those one million citizens of New York that would surely notice this angry army jacket killer with sourly pouty face son in tow .Now remember that Liam is supposed to be flat broke and begging for beer money.I guess if you're a New York Taxi driver its just another day on the job in this fair city & you work for free. Here's another example, the father/son tag team go to a Section 8 ten story building and knock on a hundred doors (they don't know what unit this black teen lives at) to warn this young black kid that a gang of crazed white men are looking for him. Now all the people behind the doors think nothing of opening up and talking to two hyperventilating blabbering white strangers.Also his whiny son Hayden Christensen checks on his prego wife without the cops staking out the address or even bothering knocking on the door of America's Most Wanted. Now another Hit-man ,Rapper Elam "Common Sense" Ferguson walking off the set of Hell on Wheels also checks out crimes scenes as the Terminator to kill the retired Hit-man after Ed Harris orders his washed-up friend to be killed for killing his junkie son after almost killing whiny Hayden Christensen. Lots of scenes without anyone rubbing two brain cells together fact checking common script sense. Forgettable gangster movie worth half a watch as your texting why this movie sucks.
I liked the movie but I didn't. Acting, screenplay, story , action is all good. I mean it doesn't make fun of viewer with unrealistic stunts. Its strange though because I felt the story is little fair to jimmy though he may not have deserved it. You 'll get it after you have watched the movie. Jimmy is not the hero in the story, and we won't expect him to stand after the unbelievable mess got cleaned but you'll root for his son and his family to stay alive because of his good choices despite being jimmy's son. That's it so its a nice movie better than recent Liam's action flicks. I would have given more than 7 but little disappointed with the story in area where most viewers don't notice. If you decide to give a bad guy a chance for redeem you must make it look like he deserves it. But may be its just me over analyzing.
