We already know that Liam Neeson likes to work, right? Hahaha. And since 2008 , with relentless pursuithe became the new idol of senior action movies, In 2021, he starred in Rescue Mission e In the sight of danger (both are on Globoplay). In 2022, he already had shadow agentand now it hits theaters this Thursday Trackless Killer. The film has a better production, a good director (Martin Campbell, from Cassino Royale), and yet another good actor, Guy Pearce.

But his severe memory loss ends up being detrimental to his health and mission. With the aim of revenge, but with his health compromised, he begins to question all his actions.
What did I think of killer without a trace?
Liam Neeson’s action movies are all more or less similar. He wants peace of mind, but ends up having to go after the really bad guys. With that, he won the title of King of Vengeance, lol. killer without a trace is no different. But there are some highlights. As the character is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, this gives Liam Neeson the opportunity to show that he’s not merely an action movie actor. Martin Campbell is always a competent director, and he manages to give the film an interesting pace. But, of course, there’s a clear problem, Liam Neeson can no longer be believable taking down people half his age. He turned 70 yesterday (7). It’s been a while since he said he’s going to steer clear of films in the genre. But killer without a trace it certainly won’t be the last.
killer without a trace based on a Belgian film, The Alzheimer’s Case, from 2003. And actually, what surprises me about him is precisely this feeling of production from the 80s/90s. It has revenge all the time, at various times with its own hands, in what appears to be a great homage to Reagan-era politics. And of course, there’s still Monica Bellucci in what is probably one of the worst performances of the year, lol. Shame on others!
