So I come home from an exhausting long day, find out there's something wrong with my internet and it can't be fixed until at least few hours (turns out it took about 4 hours to get everything back right) anyways, I was bored and then I look at my DVDs and I find this one. I always wanted to see it but never found the time. But, now that I do, I thought to myself, "why not?" I laid on my bed with Oreo (my cat, he loves to watch movies lmao) watching this movie on my TV. At first I thought Peter was going to turn all Bryan Mills (from Taken movie series) or Michael McCauley (The Commuter), because it seems to me like everytime you mess with Liam Neeson's persona's family, you're going to get hurt lol. But, no, it was a really interesting deep and somewhat thought provoking. However, I thought this could have been better. I thought there was something that is missing but I can't put my finger on it. I do enjoy these type movies and I do like Liam Neeson(s performances in them, he was good in "Mark Felt", "The Third Person" and this one. I don't know exactly what was it that amde me a little disappointed. Maybe I thought I did not expect it to end this way. However, I still enjoyed this and it made me forget about the internet for a good 90 minutes. Haha!
Slow, contrived, confusing... I had to fight to not fall asleep.
Thanks trakt.tv for showing me this movie. It gets a 10 t ninja from me. No matter the description in synopsis. everything in it was totally unexpected. Makes you want to empathize and put yourself in Peter's/Liam's shoes.. Neeson was at the top of his game in this one but all performances were great. Will watch it again one day in the far future ..
