‘HONEST THIEF’: LIAM NEESON IS BACK IN THE BIG ACTION GENRE

May 13, 2021 1 Comment

A good action film is always a good way to spend a night in. At least once in a while. This film came up on the rotation of Amazon Prime so I decided to see what Honest Thief would be like.

Honest Thief (2020) Film Review

Being a thief is all Tom Dolan (Liam Neeson) knows. He’s making a big score and a year later, he’s using storage to store his take. But as he goes in to rent a new unit, he meets Annie (Kate Walsh). Months pass and the two begin a relationship, and Tom even makes plans for them to buy a house and create a home. But first before they can move into the future, he has a plan to turn himself into the FBI. He wants to return the money and serve a reduced sentence.

Trouble is, the corrupt FBI sets out to destroy Tom all while trying to take the money.

It’s been a while since I saw Liam Neeson in an action film. Honest Thief fits his brand quite while, especially knowing him from titles like Taken or The Commuter. This film is actually pretty dang good and is more of a quiet, intellectual action film. The movie is more about fact finding or conversation over a car chase. It’s more about Tom’s quest to go the right, the moral, thing over what’s easy. This I respect.

The cast is excellent. From the good guys to the bad guys, everyone is good. Plus, what’s more fun is seeing Jeffery Donovan in a role who is from Burn Notice (and his little companion is a fun part of the movie). In the end, this film is good. It’s worth a watch if this is your jam and what I like is the fact that there’s a moral pinning to the story. It makes the story that much better to cheer on.

Content: there is some profanity and violence. A man dies from gunshot wounds; and another is wounded. There’s an intense hand to hand scene and a man beats someone nearly to death in a pretty traumatic experience. The film is PG-13.
