“ A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES”  is a recently released movie directed by Scott Frank, based on a novel by Lawrence Black. The movie stars Liam Neeson playing the role of Matt Scudder, an unlicensed  private detective who was once an ex cop and an alcoholic. He is hired by a drug lord to hunt down the perpetrators of his wife’s kidnapping and subsequent murder.

I am a fan of Liam Neeson. I was not disappointed in his acting. I thought  that all the characters played their roles well, including a young actor portraying a street child who has aspirations to be a detective and who bonds with the hero.

However despite having written the above, I can not recommend this movie. Watching a violent, grisly movie portraying blood and dismemberment of  women is not my idea of spending an enjoyable evening with friends. My companions felt the same way. Some were very incensed and felt the movie was degrading to women. Not a movie for ladies.

  1. I thought this sounded like a movie I’d enjoy very much. I love Liam Neeson. Was disappointed when I read your last comments on it. I might still enjoy it if the grisly parts are in places where I can leave the room for a minute. I can write a pretty grisly scene myself, but watching an actor portray it is sometimes a little more than I can stomach. Been unable to sit and read for more than a couple of minutes at a time lately, but still enjoying your book, Elaine. I love the stories of the grandparents before, during and after the war. Fascinating. 🙂

    Maybe you will like it . It is exciting .I don’t mind reading a good murder mystery but I don’t like violence on the screen. I am glad you are enjoying reading “Why Me?” . Hope your back feels better soon.
