      what. anticlimactic ending Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/03/23 Full Review James Exceeded expectations. It was a good night out with the family. We're going to add this one to our Liam Neeson movie marathon. If you love action and you love Liam you'll love Blacklight. It is not Taken and I liked that it didn't pretend to be Taken at all. Nice balance of thriller plot and action. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/22 Full Review EJ Same director as Honest Thief. This was a good movie. Lots to love here even besides Liam Neeson. The other actors including the daughter and the granddaughter and the journalist were really good. I liked the plot - seemed real and I liked the action sequences. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/22 Full Review Chris Yes yes yes! highly recommend. It's exactly what you expect from the trailer and doesn't disappoint with lots of Liam action scenes and some really cool car chases and this particular one with a truck that was dope. Anyway go see it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/22 Full Review CC Excellent movie! I know its not for the critics but if you love action with a good plot and LIAM NEESON then you'll have a good experience watching this film. I really got into it and I was sad when it was over. Loved it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/05/22 Full Review Felicity Blacklight was interesting because while its an action movie it also brought up some real world government things that I am sure are actually happening. It referenced a thing called cointelpro which was a real thing going on in the 60s but I wouldn't be surprised if that stuff is still happening today. Scary stuff. But good movie!

      David Stratton The Australian Plenty of fun is provided by trying to spot the local locations where the reckless car chases were filmed. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 17, 2022 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times They should know the one thing you really don’t want to do is mess with Liam Neeson’s family, because the man has a very particular — Taste in screenplays. Rated: 2/4 Feb 16, 2022 Full Review Thelma Adams AARP Movies for Grownups This melancholy actioner with a cliché-ridden script highlights a moral man contemplating retirement as his past catches up with him — along with his achy knee joints and feet. But Neeson’s still got game. Rated: 3/5 Feb 12, 2022 Full Review Rick Bentley KGET-TV (Bakersfield, CA) Neeson gets the benefit of the doubt one more time. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 10, 2023 Full Review Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews All I can say “It Was Fine” I wanted more from this generic action film… & Liam Neeson Jul 25, 2023 Full Review Pablo O. Scholz Clarín If you've seen a film with an armed Neeson, the rest. is more or less predictable. Well-filmed chase scenes and dozens of victims.
