Liam Neeson plays a boozy former Brooklyn hit-man in this decent action thriller.
He has to sober up sharply when his estranged son (Joel Kinnaman) becomes a target for the Mob after inadvertently witnessing a gang killing.
Neeson’s tenacious efforts to keep his son alive are compressed into one night, giving the film the sweaty-palmed suspense of Neeson's best action movies (this is his third teaming with director Jaume Collet-Serra, following Unknown and Non-Stop).
There isn't much to the story, but the prickly father-son relationship ensures things don't turn too sappy whenever there's a lull in the action and the ruggedly heroic Neeson shows he still has what it takes as cinema's favourite action dad.
