It’s probably the best Luc Besson movie that he didn’t direct.
Liam Neeson gives a standout performance securing his spot as the thinking man’s action star. This movie is the ultimate nightmare of all parents. With this and Hostel, I’m actually having second thoughts on that European vacation fantasy.
That said, the movie raises a lot of questions that will probably make the self-righteous’ heads explode. An eye for an eye might make the world go blind but it makes one hell of a popcorn flick, too. Morality gets thrown out the window for comeuppance.
Now that’s what I call an action movie.
