A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014) - A grim but satisfying outing

It turns out the title of this film, taken from American mystery writer Lawrence Block’s 1992 book from which it is adapted, is pretty apt. This is a slow paced crime thriller with a dark atmosphere, sporting perhaps a little less action that you might expect from Liam Neeson lately, although there are a fair few bloody corpses. 569 more words
