NO SIN GOES UNPUNISHED.
When Mike Conlon (Joel Kinnaman) accidentally witnesses a mob hit, he’s forced to rely on his estranged father (Liam Neeson), a former killer who used to work for the man (Ed Harris) who’s now chasing them. The third collaboration between Neeson and the director is another exciting thriller, this time set in New York City over 16 hours. Everything is familiar, including the final showdown where the appearance of a certain character is meant to come across as a surprise; we’ve certainly also seen Neeson before as a washed-up drunk who redeems himself. Still, very intense, with a terrific cast and effective use of the city.
