Liam Neeson has been busy. After already flexing his dramatic muscles in two earlier 2020 dramas (“Ordinary Love” and “Made in Italy”), Neeson gets back in crowdpleasing mode with his upcoming banger “Honest Thief”. And judging by the new trailer, the film has all the markings of a Neeson action-thriller right down to the signature gravelly-voiced one-liner “I’m comin’ for you.” Sound familiar?
Neeson plays a highly-skilled bank robber who the authorities have never managed to snag. But he turns over a new leaf once he meets and falls for Annie (Kate Walsh). Hungry for clean living, he prepares to surrender the money to police in exchange for a immunity. Two crooked cops and a shot federal agent later, Neeson finds himself framed for murder with two money-hungry detectives on his tail. I’m in.
“Honest Thief” opens October 9th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
Ah this is for me!
I kinda had a feeling this might get your attention. 🙂
You seen anything about Unhinged yet? Looking forward to that too!
Actually yes. I’ve had a First Glance written for it but keep forgetting to post it. I’ll do that this afternoon. Russell Crowe road rage? Sign me up!
Trailer looks awesome 🙂
Indeed. And that final shot still makes me jump.
OH HELL YEAH!!!! This looks like fun. Anything that had Liam Neeson just talking slowly and with a calmed menace is a win for me. If someone made a film of him talking like that as he’s reading a phone book and sitting on a toilet. You damn right I would see it. We all know he could do more but he’s sticking with what works. AC/DC made 20-something albums that sound the same but no one complained.
Now that’s a funny (and terrific) comparison. Basically Liam Neeson is the AC/DC of movies. Love it!
That’s not a bad analogy though Liam has managed to do a bit more such as comedy and drama. It’s just that these thrillers are his bread and butter.
I’m in the movie! And I will be seeing it.
The Wiggles are my bread and butter
