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.

Solid Neeson action fare. Nothing spectacular and you get what you expect - which is good stuff.

Kenny Kristo, played by Dan Stevens, a drug kingpin seeking revenge...

Whilst Neeson did a good job, the story and execution of this thriller is such a let-down. I mean I can tell by watching the trailer that this doesn't look good and it sure doesn't. It certainly is no Taken whilst watchable, there's nothing intriguing about the storyline nor the action. At the end, it fell flat.

The film is a total drag. No suspense or plot. Only the cold and creepy atmosphere.
