Matt Scudder is an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder agrees to help a heroin trafficker hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime, nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again.

Not even Liam Neeson could rescue this film from its unnecessary sexual torture/women as victim scenes. There's some attempt to make the drug dealers sympathetic figures as they realize their lucrative "profession" has put their wives and daughters at risk from the two sociopaths.

Spouse enjoyed movie but I could have done without the graphic gore-ish scenes. Thought the story was interesting. Spouse would watch it again 'sometime in the future' but not for me. Its a bit ore than you'd anticipate with Liam Neesom in lead role.

Enjoy Liam Neeson as an actor, but this film contained gruesome, sickening, torturous violence, which I don't consider entertaining.

This is a 2014 American neo-noir crime thriller written and directed by Scott Frank, based on a novel by Lawrence Block of the same name.
There is NOT much nor interesting twists in the storyline.
It appears like a B-movie with strong violence, disturbing images and some ungraceful nudity.

A poor man’s version of Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe – A little more atmosphere and a reduction of the silly fights and shootouts and this could have been a really good film. Well, at least Liam Neeson does some acting unlike his mindless Taken 2, 3, 4, etc. where the films are all about mindless running and shooting.

It's not a puzzle celluloid,even though it pretends to be.This is sleep inducing also.Brian Bradley will be a real star if he sells his soul to the DEVIL,but i digress.

A good and gritty crime drama, with enough twists, turns, and bloody retribution to keep one's interest throughout. Liam Neeson was outstanding as the hardboiled ex-cop protagonist, and Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens puts in a strong supporting performance, though some of the other characters seemed to be miscast at best.

Step 1. We admitted we were
powerless over alcohol. That our lives had become unmanageable.

Step 2. Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Step 3. Made a decision to turn
our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him.

Step 4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
...
Step 8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

-I'll have a suitcase full of money in each hand, a gun won't do me much good.

-Step 10. Continue to take personal inventory. And when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

-Step 11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand him.
