An ex-NYPD cop and recovering alcoholic haunted by regrets, Matt Scudder (Liam Neeson) has a lot to make up for. When a series of kidnappings targeting the wives of drug dealers escalates to grisly murder, Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) and his brother (Boyd Holbrook) hunt the two men down and bring them to bloody justice. An unlicensed private detective, Matt gets help from his former colleague (Ruth Wilson) and a homeless 17 year-old artist, TJ (Astro.) Operating just outside the law to track down the monsters responsible, Scudder stops just short of becoming one himself.

Watched A Walk Among The Tombstones with Justin in the afternoon. Personally, I felt that it was rather slow paced with a decent plot. The story flow was not good as expected. Nevertheless, it kept me engaged throughout the film. The filming techniques was not as good as the usual ones thus I guess it may be a lower end production?

I thought it was alright to have many conversation since its a detective film however it could have been better if dialogues were doubled. The climax in certain scenes just hit to a certain degree which was not impactful enough I thought. Its a pity as it somewhat pulled down the show slightly. 

Towards the end, the plot was nicely crafted with good climax. You can see the usual Liam Neeson with his cool and smart moves to tackle the kidnappers. Overall, it was a good thriller film.
