A Walk Among the Tombstones

Liam Neeson is a private investigator trailing two sickos who prey on the wives of rich drug traffickers. Adapted from a novel by Lawrence Block, this revenge thriller evokes Charles Bronson vehicles from the mid 1970s, right down to the title. It’s nasty, cynical, and heavy on the torture, though writer-director Scott Frank, working with the gifted cinematographer Mihai Malaimare Jr. (The Master), achieves a thick, foreboding atmosphere. As usual, Neeson gives a more thoughtful performance than the material deserves. With Dan Stevens.
