Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
So, expecting an action packed Taken style movie? Well if you are re-engage those exceptions because AWATT is NOT that film. What it is is a solid, if unspectacular and a little over long, broken cop thriller very much in the vein of Narc or Rush. Just not as good. What’s good? Neeson is solid and well honed in this type of role nowadays and whilst he doesn’t put in a great deal of effort, he’s not phoning it in either. Some good support roles, a few gruesome moments and an interesting story JUST ABOUT compensate for a film that could do with a pace increase at times and a shorter run time. So… not bad by any stretch but also in no way a classic.
Best Bit: Beareded Hobo Neeson
