Story: Set about a decade in the past, Matthew Scudder (Neeson) is a former cop and a reformed alcoholic who pays the bills by being a private investigator. A drug dealer hires him to find his wife's killers. He finds out that the perpetrators are depraved serial sex offenders and murderers.

Review: Liam Neeson taps into the same grit and determination that he did for his role in Taken, but this movie seems like a distant cousin of the former. Tombstones follows a pattern that you might recognize from some of Neeson's recent work, but there are many aspects that make this well-made film also quite refreshing, with some interesting turns. For starters, few shots are fired. In fact, Scudder prefers the use of a firearm as a means of last resort.

The grizzled Scudder still uses payphones and is wary of newfangled gadgets. Kenny Kristo's (Stevens) story about his wife's kidnapping and murder has Scudder committed to the case. While researching in a library, Scudder befriends a homeless boy TJ (Bradley) whom he reluctantly accepts as a helper during his investigations. We also learn why Scudder quit the police force and alcohol after an encounter outside a bar led to the death of an innocent bystander girl.

Things get more intense when another much younger girl is kidnapped. The movie evolves into a more complex yet nuanced direction. Grey and brown visual tones are used as if to signify the morally ambiguous choices Scudder has to make to find and apprehend the pervert perpetrators Albert (Thompson) and Ray (Harbour). These streets are mean and the overall tone is that of no-nonsense and even eerie at times. And yet, Neeson's character is inherently solid, likeable and even wryly funny at times. In fact, most of the major characters are well fleshed-out. Except, oddly enough, the bad guys seem random and Scudder seems to gain the psychological upper hand over them almost too easily. Nonetheless, the movie is classic Liam Neeson and like any good thriller, keeps you guessing till the end.
