Plot Summary

Based on Lawrence Block’s bestselling series of mystery novels, 'A Walk among the Tombstones' stars Liam Neeson as Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law.  When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime…nor will it be the last.  Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again.

  • For a good, straight-ahead noirish crime thriller, you could do a lot worse than A Walk Among the Tombstones. show more

  • None of the film's tropes — fancy camera angles, dark streets, persistent rain, psycho killers in doomy settings, Scudder trudging around the city on their trail — can hide the essential hollowness of a not-very-interesting revenge tale that takes a not-at-all-welcome turn into grisly, ugly horror. show more

  • With the combo of Neeson’s natural solemnity and his action chops, “Tombstones” treads compellingly amongst lesser thrillers. show more

    a pretty good show that goes awry 2/3 of the way through---some excellent mood setting scenes and still worth seeing grade B
