I know the question you are all wanting answered. Does Liam Neeson have a certain set of skills in this movie? Of course he does! He's a one-man army versus the baddest of the bad in the Mexican Cartel.
Now, if that is your only reason for wanting to see this movie, then go for it. Grab your popcorn, candy, and drink and enjoy. If you like that stuff, but you also want a smart film, well...this is not the movie you are looking for.
While this flick is entertaining and somewhat suspenseful. it is also filled with about 20 moments where you will find yourself saying, "Why did they do that instead of this obvious thing?" There are more holes in this plot than there are holes in Lim Neeson's truck after the Cartel shoots it up. (Not a spoiler. We all know that happens in every movie he's in).
If you are in the mood for a good action flick, check your brain at the door and have a fun time. If you are hoping to discuss this film over coffee, you may want to buy a small.
