The Marksman (2021) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Marksman is another step in the downward spiral of the action career of Liam Neeson, a boring lifeless action thriller that lacks both action and thrills. Okay so he’s not yet in the Bruce Willis zone (I mean is ANYONE?) but The Marksman has nothing new to offer.  To be honest even Neeson looks bored.  The thing is Neeson has proven numerous times that he has action chops but his current output is a long way away from the highs of Taken, a film that still holds up very well today (and would be a much better use of your time that this would be).

Best Bit: Urm… I guess it could have been worse?
