  • the only way to stop Liam Neeson is caller ID

  • you're watching Beyond The Trailer's review of a walk among the tombstones

  • I never laid a hand on her...

  • The other two, they're the ones you gotta worry about...

  • They were obsessed!

  • these guys are monsters, non-human

  • How can I find them?

  • Yes it does seem that Liam Neeson's very particular set of skills include

  • threatening criminals over the phone

  • and to somehow not run this new formula his into the ground

  • taken came out in 2009 and he's still going strong

  • nonstop which cost just $50 million to make pulled in almost 200 million

  • worldwide and that's just in theaters

  • in fact he's pretty much created a whole genre with Pierce Brosnan and denzel

  • washington following suit

  • although I'm pretty sure denzel actually did this first with films like Man on

  • Fire years before Taken hit theaters

  • anyway Neeson also impressively capitalize on his new image by

  • lampooning it in the lego movie with great success

  • have you seen him record the dialogue? he doesn't all in one take

  • jumping between bad cop and good cop live! so we all know that Neeson is in good

  • shape so let's focus on someone who's hoping a little Neeson magic will rub

  • off on him

  • and that's Downton Abbey's dan Stevens or Dana Stevens as he is currently

  • listed on Box Office Mojo - Ouch

  • back when Stevens originally left the smash hit British TV show

  • ruining Christmas for many fans to boot as his final episode was the Christmas

  • special

  • it seemed the height idiocy but now?

  • well first he joined the Hollywood protection program losing so much weight

  • he's almost unrecognizable

  • and after slumming it in movies like vamps and the fifth estate

  • now he's making ladies swoon san shirt over in indie horror flick the guest

  • appearing here opposite liam neeson in a walk among the tombstones then opposite

  • Adam Sandler in the Cobbler

  • opposite Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum 3 and

  • also joins the ensemble cast in rorschach's directorial debut criminal activities

  • with john travolta and boardwalk Empire's Michael Pitt

  • looks like Matthew Crawley is not the only one who can charm his way into the

  • upper-class. outside its casting a walk among the tombstone seems to be pretty

  • by the numbers

  • another popular crime series this time written by Lawrence Block

  • which Hollywood is hoping to turn into a franchise all Alex Cross or

  • Jack Reacher and it's directed by Scott Frank made some waves with the lookout

  • in 2007

  • yet mostly finds himself one of several writers credited to big blockbusters like

  • Minority Report, Marley and Me and the Wolverine

  • so will this will be remembered as helping to put dan Stevens on the

  • hollywood map

  • just another Liam Neeson movie or maybe the first of many movies about Matthew

  • Scudder

  • mysterious private investigator this is a really impressive

  • thriller but it also happens to be wanna most disturbing films

  • I've ever seen and I can't really make up my mind as to whether or not

  • it's constructed to remind people the even like this

  • does exist in the world orkut irresponsible

  • to potentially encourage such behavior but I do know that night I saw this film

  • after I

  • I went home I couldn't go to sleep I was so haunted

  • by what I saw and I have to say this is one of the few times I think being a

  • female moviegoer

  • didn't give me a different experience in a male viewer

  • might happen that's because the intense violence towards women

  • she in this movie but that's not to say it goes over the top

  • or its sensationalized this is

  • very real violence which is what makes it so horrify

  • this explores those are you know really demented individuals out there

  • who just see women as meet and then really do exist

  • I were the things that our contributors my not being able to sleep

  • was the reminder that this kind even was real because after I saw the movie I

  • went over to CNN dot com

  • and there was an article about a couple a man and a woman

  • who jumped another woman a prisoner in a cage for two months

  • as a dog slash sex slaves and then of course I recall

  • very differently when I was little my mother told me about another story

  • about a woman abducted into a van in broad daylight

  • in a busy street Manhattan and not a single person

  • trying to save her and that's the kind of violence that's the kind of

  • horrifying real Avensis explored in this movie

  • goes there goes there convincingly I

  • deeply and you just need to be prepared to go there with it

  • if you're going to watch this movie and if you do you watch this movie

  • it really is one of the best movies Liam Neeson has ever made and it's not just

  • another Liam Neeson movie he's very good and the rule

  • he changes just not just his accent his clothes his demeanor

  • just enough for it to seem fraction it is fresh

  • he's very good and as I said it was the best Liam Neeson movies I've ever seen

  • he's made some very good movies now ass report dan Stevens

  • I don't break he's not very good I think that once the novelty you have different

  • he looks wears off

  • you realize he's just miscast I in the role that he has here

  • but he doesn't get the movies way it's a it's an ensemble piece

  • and even though Liam Neeson stands out and there's one other person who stands

  • actually get to in a moment

  • but the point i'm trying to say is that I even the supporting cast

  • really does a great job everyone of its the place perfectly

  • to create as I said really solid nifty little thriller

  • now the other standout believe it or not and even though he was in this movie

  • because he's not in the trailers

  • is Astro for X Factor he's also up

  • african-american boy in earth to echo and you know I question the acting over

  • north to echo and

  • it was that young actors falters scripts fault and it must have been the scripts

  • p

  • or at least an Astros case because he's so good here he plays

  • the kids psychic any actually manages to make a cute psychic endearing and fun to

  • have around instead of annoyed

  • and we frequently goers now that is tough to do I actually liked hanging

  • around

  • look forward to having him come back so I hope they actually do make more

  • these films and I would like to see Liam Neeson Astra

  • team up for the long run I think that's actually a really good do look for the

  • silver screen

  • I also have to get a shot up to writer director Scott brick message directed

  • very much

  • but that makes it all the more impressive what a good job he does here

  • on this film has a very strong visual voice without again

  • getting in the way the actual story and also some really impressive shots

  • this reminds me a really great Greece seventy

  • sa thriller not the French Connection et cetera

  • I just think the whole film as I say really just clicks into place and I

  • really enjoyed it so

  • I'm warning you as to the subject matter I

  • and what's going to be shown on screen and its terrifying film

  • in the climax many times during the movie particularly big climax

  • I couldn't I couldn't even look at the screen are so scared

  • but it's good it's not a cheat never cheap scare and it's never

  • on objectification of women this this is real

  • so enjoy the phone he decide to go to decide to go I think you will enjoy it

  • and be careful out there alright thanks for watching
