Similar enough to Taken to be marketed as an unofficial Taken 2.5, but different enough to disappoint anyone expecting that, A Walk Among the Tombstones is a relatively old school private eye drama that maintains attention without leaving a lasting impression.

Too formally well crafted to be dismissed, but too straightforward and uncurious to be particularly exciting or insightful.

Exciting, in places, though a stranger to subtlety, it ticks all the genre boxes, but there’s something about its knowing noirisms that feels superficial rather than soaked-in.

Well paced and fairly watchable, but it does take itself desperately seriously.

Nasty, brutal and unforgiving... one of those rare contemporary cinematic offerings: intelligent pulp.

The biggest surprise is the fact that, even after all this time, Neeson still can't do a decent American accent.

Neeson’s latest effory is slightly more subdued than his average shoot-’em-up, but no less gruffly satisfying.

Distinctly and proudly old-fashioned in its retro, film noir vibe.

Like a good butcher’s cleaver, it’s weighty, solid and sharp.
