Just like Charles Bronson did, if Liam Neeson keeps making the Revenge flicks , I'll keep watching them !!
I knew this flick was going to be good as I saw the previews while attending other movies in the theater , I was not disappointed.
This film centers around some dark and twisted topics with loose moral fiber in spades . Neeson's latest movie chalked full of extreme gun violence and has a very talented supporting cast . This impressive ensemble, following Guy Pearce as FBI agent Vincent Serra, Monica Belushi as despicable CEO Davana Sealman, a shady detective played by Ray Stevenson, and more criminal investigators played by Taj Atwal and Harold Torres, somewhat rounding things out.
MEMORY follows Alex Lewis (Liam Neeson), an expert assassin with a reputation for discreet precision. Caught in a moral quagmire, Alex refuses to complete a job that violates his code and must quickly hunt down and kill the people who hired him before they and FBI agent Vincent Serra (Guy Pearce) find him first. Alex is built for revenge but, with a memory that is beginning to falter, he is forced to question his every action, blurring the line between right and wrong.
This is one of Neeson's better efforts and yields a gripping , albeit dark and violent yet compelling tale. This is a riveting thriller. "Memory" feels like a resurgence inside a late-career genre that he had to some (not me personally) seemingly worn out his welcome. Neeson's acting chops are on display in full force as he deals for the mental woes of his memory loss suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's , he does a very fine job in this dark and brooding film. Two thumbs up ----- watching the Oscar-nominated actor unleash mayhem !
Fmovies: When Liam Neeson starred in good films. What happened? His last 4 movies were terrible. Why is he working on straight to streaming low budget films? Is he strapped for cash? I don't get it. Pretty soon he'll be in movie a with Bruce Willis and Steven Seagal.
Nothing revolutionary with this film, in fact, it's pretty much formulaic, predictable, and cliched of every action film Neeson has already done - hence the name Memory?, but poorly produced and lazily written, that it ends up as a B-film. Even the ending was cringeworthy and something I'd expect from a high school drama class. The few action scenes were decent, but lacked proper choreography and camera shots to give them any 'wow' factor. I don't even know why this film was made, we certainly have seen it all before, and much better. The 114 min runtime felt much longer - even with the decent pacing, due to much filler and little substance. Casting and performances were decent. It's a generous 7/10 from me.
Memory fmovies. RATED 8/10 Language: English RECOMMENDED
decent action thriller with good story backdrop. The age old story and the remake is visible in most the places. Another Liam action flick, but this time it is bit more watchable. The killings are nicely shot and police investigative track also handled well.it is definitely one time watchable action flick.
I don't like to give away too much about any movie because I enjoy going in cold. It's more exciting that way and when you find a little gem the surprise makes it all the better. I was very surprised by how good this one is.
The acting was good, the story was interesting and while there isn't a ton of action, the action we get is quick and brutal. It felt a little reminiscent of both 40's Noirs and gritty 70s crime movies. All in all I'm glad i didn't pay attention the some of the reviews and the rating.
Memory is a significant step up from the Liam Neeson movies of the past few years.
This was one of those movies that could've gone straight to home release and been more enjoyable. However, it goes to theatres and becomes a bit of a disappointment. The acting was mediocre, the story has a moment of strength then collapses, and it's just the same old plot with a slightly different twist.
The acting by Liam Neeson and Guy Pearce was good. I found that Neeson was stronger this time around compared to some of his other latest roles, and Pearce fit the role of FBI agent quite well. However, some of the major supporting just didn't seem to care at times. They lacked passion in the role or felt a little awkward.
The concept of the film was interesting. Guy is an assassin and taking on one last job until it interferes with his personal code. Then he turns around and begins killing those who've wronged him on the mission, but not without the difficulty of memory loss.
On paper it seems like a cool movie with cool characters and a relatively strong story that would be enjoyable. Until you watch it and the parts that tell the story are rushed and the parts that are fillers drag on and take more of the runtime. And honestly, the runtime already feels long at and hour and fifty-four minutes.
Overall, I was once again disappointed with a Liam Neeson film. The story lacks good visual representation and strong characters. I'd recommend waiting for this film to come out on a streaming service.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review. I hope it helps in your decision-making process of the film. Until next time.... Enjoy the show!
