Liam Neeson, who stars in this weekend’s Very Important and also Very Dull “Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down The White House,” recently announced that he was putting away his special set of skills. The actor, who has seen a late career resurgence thanks to punching people in the “Taken” movies and punching people movies directed by his bud Jaume Collet-Serra (“Run All Night,” “Unknown,” “Non-Stop,” the upcoming “The Commuter“), declared he was done punching people. Well, that resolution hasn’t lasted long.
Perhaps realizing that no one is going to see ‘Mark Felt’ this weekend and that all we want to do is see Liam Neeson punch people, the actor has wisely announced his glorious return to punching people.
“It’s not true, look at me! You’re talking in the past tense. I’m going to be doing action movies until they bury me in the ground. I’m unretired,” he told Variety.
Well, that makes sense given that he’s still got the snowy revenge movie “Hard Powder” on the way, and probably keeps getting scripts on his desk which require him to kill someone using only a Bic pen or something. Either way, Neeson’s bread and butter lately has been severely disabling bad guys on the big screen, so it looks like he’s going to tap that well until its dry. And hey, who can blame guy?
“The Commuter” rolls into the station on January 12, 2018.
