A Walk Among Tombstones
One's past can crawl into one's thoughts and stay like a bad dream that lingers during the day, both are difficult to shake.
This is what Matt Scudder (Liam Neeson) deals with in reference to his past as a former NYPD cop.
It was Matt’s day off and he was enjoying free drinks in a local bar reading his newspaper in a back booth hidden from view by anyone entering the bar.
Matt was minding his own business reading his paper when several men came in to rob the bar; and they fired shots at the bartender. In his pursuit of the robbers---he shot the third robber in the leg and the bullet kept traveling until it stopped in the body of an innocent citizen causing death instantly.
Now Matt makes his living as an unlicensed Private Detective. He does jobs for people who give him gifts of money. He was not especially looking for another job at the time he was requested by Kheran Khoury (Dan Stevens) a drug dealer to please come see him.
Kheran Khoury's wife was murdered by kidnappers who received the ransom money, but murdered Mrs. Khoury anyway, and then cut her up in little pieces. Kheran wants Matt to find them so he can do the same to them as they did his wife.
Matt did was not really interested in this job until Kheran played the video where both men were raping his wife. The video got to Matt---now he was furious about a helpless woman being raped and then sending the tape to her husband. Kheran and his brother (Boyd Holbrook) wanted to help Matt search for the killers.
He knew from experience the killers had done this before and would do it again. They were going where the money was and that was the drug traffickers.
Now, action, mayhem and gun fire echoed through the backstreets from Matt’s support group as they searched the where the lowly scum of the earth frequent. Matt forgets about himself for a brooding while and goes after the killers before they kill again.
This movie will premiere on September 19th the third Friday of September---so mark your calendars for another of Liam Neeson action movies.
