Quickie Review: Blacklight

Now where did I put that last review of a Liam Neeson action movie? I can probably just dust it off…

At nearly 70 (!) Liam Neeson remains quite watchable. But the action shtick is getting old. Move it along — nothing new to see here folks. Unless you just feel compelled (as I often do) to watch Neeson exercise those particular skills that have carried him through every action thriller since Taken, which set a bar that few of Neeson’s films– in this particular genre– have been able to match.

Unknown

If you’re a fan of Liam Neeson and you like movies like The Bourne Identity, then you really can’t go wrong with Unknown. It’s a classic psychological thriller that leaves you wondering what’s what for a solid, fast-moving two hours.

Flipped

Meathead makes some pretty good movies, and while I didn’t completely “flip” over Flipped, I definitely did like it. Director Rob Reiner delivers a sweet, simple, yet entertaining movie that provides a nice break from all the highly-hyped, big-budget, sensory-overload movies that tend to dominate the summer box office.
