Scroll down to hear Chuck talk about these movies on the show.
A Walk Among the Tombstones (Starts Friday)
Based on the crime novel by Lawrence Block, Liam Neeson stars as private investigator Matthew Scudder, who’s hired by a drug kingpin to find the person who kidnapped and killed his wife. The mystery at the film’s center is solid and smart, while the villains prove to be the sort that audiences love to hate. While the movie threatens to overstay its welcome, Neeson’s strong, steady presence holds it all together. 3 Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated R. 113 minutes. AMC, CAR, SAV.
No Good Deed (Last Week)
A wife and mother (Taraji Henson) living in suburban Atlanta learns that no good deed goes unpunished when she allows a stranger (Idris Elba) in her house to use the phone after he shows up on her doorstep claiming he has car trouble. Predictable and sporting a lead character that is supposed to be smart but does some pretty stupid things, this is a standard thriller that takes a sledgehammer approach in presenting the obvious. A waste of time for all involved. 1 ½ Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated PG-13. 84 minutes. AMC, CAR, SAV
