New from Tarek Fayoumi on Motion pictures with Tarek: Blacklight Overview


Simply from the Blacklight trailer I knew this Liam Neeson suspense movie can be a repeat of Taken (2009), Non-Cease (2014), Run All Evening (2015), and different Neeson movies about time working out to save lots of somebody or one thing. Regardless of the repetitiveness, Neeson can nonetheless pull these movies off. He’s an excellent actor with the angle, the mindset, and the seriousness that has served him effectively for a few years. However Blacklight, sadly, is way from his finest movie.

In Blacklight, Neeson is Travis Block, a authorities operative attempting to stroll away from a previous that has haunted him. His world is turned the other way up when he realizes his former director, Gabriel Robinson, performed by Aidan Quinn, has been committing crimes in opposition to U.S. residents. Dusty Crane, performed by Taylor John Smith, is one other operative who’s put in danger with Robinson’s corrupt operations. There’s additionally reporter Mira Jones, performed by Emmy Raver-Lampman, who believes there’s a story that may go public. And there may be Travis’s daughter Amanda Block, performed by Claire van der Growth, who will get snarled in Robinson’s net whereas her father tries to guard her and his granddaughter.

These are the principal characters, and I’ve described the fundamental theme, however the plot of Blacklight jumps round so much. It appeared like they have been focusing extra on Neeson somewhat than a cohesive story. And though there have been many actions sequences with Neeson, at 69 he can’t run as quick or bounce as excessive as he as soon as did. His traditional voice continues to be sturdy and authoritative, although, and that’s a promoting level for the movie.

Total, I might say that Blacklight is simply above common. Intelligent at instances however with a considerably dry plot that may be out of focus. Some first rate chase scenes, and I all the time take pleasure in Neeson’s performances. Aside from that, not a lot. Two and a half stars for Blacklight.
