“I can tell you he’s American,” said FBI agent Vincent Cera (Jay Pearce), with wholly undeserved confidence, upon hearing a voice [checks notes]…Liam Neeson. No disrespect to Mr. Neeson, bear in mind that he is one of the best movie star actors in the world and currently most dependent on an old man kicker. But he looks as American as Sean Connery. In a movie in which at least three of the main characters—Pierce, Neeson, and Ray Stevenson—adopt fake American accents, Neeson was, admirably, the least convincing. And that’s considering the scene in which Texas lawman Stephenson, coming under fire, yells, “”LAHV shootuh! Lahav Shotoh!

Neeson plays Alex Lewis, a serial killer with memory problems. The notes written on his arms – a trick borrowed from the character Costa Pierce help souvenir-But really, it’s time to retire. And maybe in real life, killers can. But in the movies, they always have to work one last job, even when it’s clear that the employer’s money would be better spent on someone who, you know, still loves to do the thing they’re good at. Instead, the conscientious Alex is suddenly under pressure to get hold of a contract, backs off when it comes to a child, and decides to spend the rest of his sick short life eliminating those who made him do so before the cops and doctors can.

memory It is officially a remake of a Belgian film released in the United States under the name memory of a killerAdapted from the Dutch novel Alzheimer’s case. Allows preservation of the original sex plot of minors and their transfer to Texas and Mexico memory To counter the two biggest conservative bugaboos-du-jour: Pedophilia and Boundaries. And in typical action movie style, she unequivocally suggests that rogue killers are better at taking care of society’s problems than inept and endangered law enforcement. Not that you should think carefully about the politics of the movie, because it doesn’t seem like anyone involved in making it did.

While his political ear may not be smart, Director Martin CampbellLike Neeson’s character, he used to be one of the best characters in his field. An expert at crafting expensive, grotesque action scenes around iconic and heroic superhero characters, he brought style and tension into his James Bond films, Zorro, and yes, Green Lantern. (Even Ryan Reynolds underestimates the latter.) vertical border, the movie with no memorable characters at all, only works because of the insane amounts of danger Campbell throws the cast onto the screen. When it comes to further feats of armed men based on the story, he’s sometimes as adrift as the last protagonist.

Simply put, the director’s desire to make a big action movie here is just as evident as his lack of a huge budget to do so. Neeson’s frail older killer can still effortlessly smash heads through windows, smash a toilet by throwing a bad guy in it – and in something like bad boys A movie, all of that would fit in with the tone, as well as Neeson’s lack of interest in learning dialects. But they stand out as anomalies in memory, which in another way tries to be a thriller on the ground. That’s even with Campbell clearly getting the most out of launching spoiled boat parties, and luxurious indoor pools that look like something out of an alien world.

No doubt Neeson’s association led to the film getting the green light, but one of the advantages of his source material, memory of a killer is the opportunity her characters give all actors to create roles pretty much from scratch, at least for most American audiences. Pierce, who wears hair and a wardrobe inspired by the Beastie Boys video “Sabotage,” does his best to ditch the glamour, at least. But Campbell still portrays his co-stars like superstars, and Neeson’s supposed dementia doesn’t affect the plot anywhere near as much as it should.

There is never a moment when anyone might think they risk appearing genuine embarrassment the way all Alzheimer’s patients do at one time or another. You can replace the text with almost any disability, injury, or even phobia, and the plot won’t change much. On the other hand, exchanging Ray Stevenson in the lead role might be more interesting, as he already looks at his age at this, while Neeson, more than a decade old, continues to challenge him.

However, it would be good to think that the forgotten nature of memory It was a deliberate irony. Then we can give him extra points for intelligence, instead of an average score for being nice.
