Story


Formerly a detective with the NYPD, now a recovering alcoholic haunted by regrets, Matt Scudder (Neeson) has a lot to make up for. When a series of kidnappings targeting the city's worst drug criminals escalates to grisly murder, the circuit's ruthless leader convinces Scudder to find the culprits and bring them to bloody justice. Working as an unlicensed private detective, Matt sees what the police don't see and treads where they most fear to. Operating just outside the law to track down the monsters responsible, Scudder stops just short of becoming one himself.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..too formally well crafted to be dismissed, but too straightforward and uncurious to be particularly exciting or insightful..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
“..the film is littered with cliches, but a towering performance from Neeson and some delicate artistry from writer-turned-director Scott Frank lifts it above bog standard..”
by Stella Papamichael [Digital Spy]
“..exciting, in places, though a stranger to subtlety, it ticks all the genre boxes, but there's something about its knowing noirisms that feels superficial rather than soaked-in..”
by Matt Glasby [Total Film]
