    A dynamite thriller. Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    Frank’s film is much more of a noir outing than a straight action feature, and Neeson slips right into the tone and feel of the hard-boiled detective offering. Neeson may have been treated to a big career resurgence thanks to his knack for big action, but he’s great as Matt Scudder, and the darker charms of the film suit him wonderfully. Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    A Walk Among the Tombstones is an uncommonly well-made thriller.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    Like a good butcher’s cleaver, it’s weighty, solid and sharp — an effective matching of director and star in what is hopefully the first of a new film series.

    Empire Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The white hats are stained dark gray as if by ashes and soot. The villains are twisted, cruel, and vile. The heroes aren't much better.

  • Joe McGovern

    As a throwback to a type of nasty, ugly crime film of yesteryear, A Walk Among the Tombstones cleans up.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Neeson used his newfound box-office clout to get A Walk Among the Tombstones made, and he's the best reason to see it.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Neeson is in nearly every scene in the movie, and he carries it well. Yes, he’s played this nails-tough, world-weary, scotch-loving, ex-law enforcement type again and again — but he’s as good as anyone in the world at playing those types, and in this case he has some rich material to work with.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Walter Addiego

    For a good, straight-ahead noirish crime thriller, you could do a lot worse than A Walk Among the Tombstones.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The cluttered climax, in a Mother Bates cellar, explains little of the killers’ psychology; for that you have to read the book. But it does let Neeson assert his primacy as the cinema’s most graven, grieving, grievous senior citizen — a figure who doesn’t so much star in his films as haunt them. This ghost of a movie star is never more at home than when walking among the tombstones.

    Time Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The talented writer-director Scott Frank comes awfully close in his adaptation of one of Block’s better novels, A Walk Among the Tombstones. I’d be way more enthusiastic if Frank hadn’t swapped out the book’s horrific, unforgettable ending for something so conventional, I can barely remember it a few days later.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Nasty, brutal and unforgiving, A Walk Among the Tombstones is one of those rare contemporary cinematic offerings: intelligent pulp.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Neeson’s latest effort, A Walk Among The Tombstones, is slightly more subdued than his average shoot-’em-up, but no less gruffly satisfying.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    As nauseating as the film's inventive sadisms can be, Frank succeeds far more in the details than in the larger picture that tries to relate this world to ours.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Nikola Grozdanovic

    You’ll walk away almost certain that you’ve seen a decent thriller, but your thoughts may stumble on the word “thrill.”

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Well, this is the best adaptation of Block – in fact, the only decent one.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Although overplotted and underexplained, the movie is rich in memorable lairs.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Unlike his tough guy roles in "Taken" or "Non-Stop," Neeson is at least given some good dialogue. And he's a jot more world-weary than kick-ass here.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    With the combo of Neeson’s natural solemnity and his action chops, “Tombstones” treads compellingly amongst lesser thrillers.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Scott Frank's atmospheric thriller is a step up from Neeson's usual shoot-'em-ups. Not a giant leap, but a step up nonetheless.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Ed Frankl

    When push comes to shove, A Walk Among the Tombstones carries its B-movie thrills with aplomb.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Too formally well crafted to be dismissed, but too straightforward and uncurious to be particularly exciting or insightful.

    Variety Full Review
  • Matt Glasby

    Exciting, in places, though a stranger to subtlety, it ticks all the genre boxes, but there’s something about its knowing noirisms that feels superficial rather than soaked-in.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Every year, so many artless, gormless, generically slick thrillers make their way into theaters that any time a genre director displays basic filmmaking smarts, the result ends up seeming like a retro novelty. Such is the case with writer-director Scott Frank’s murky potboiler A Walk Among The Tombstones.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    The problem with this adaptation of Lawrence Block’s detective yarn isn’t that it casts Neeson in a role we’re seeing him play again and again. It’s that no one else in the movie makes a character feel nearly as broken-in and fully inhabited as he does.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    A Walk Among the Tombstones is the creepiest film I've seen in quite some time, and that's not meant as a compliment.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The look, style and smarts of A Walk Among the Tombstones seem like such a refreshingly toned-down departure from the outlandishness of Neeson’s “Taken” franchise that it’s all the more dismaying when the film shifts radically into a sadistic tableau of blood and gore.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    They don’t make ’em like A Walk Among the Tombstones any more. Mainly because everyone got bored with ’em and stopped watching ’em.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Distinctly and proudly old-fashioned in its retro, film noir vibe, A Walk Among the Tombstones is notable for its dark atmospherics and strong performance by Liam Neeson.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rupert Hawksley

    The film is not a total disaster, however. There is a captivating, unsettling climax and some impressive supporting performances.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    None of the film's tropes — fancy camera angles, dark streets, persistent rain, psycho killers in doomy settings, Scudder trudging around the city on their trail — can hide the essential hollowness of a not-very-interesting revenge tale that takes a not-at-all-welcome turn into grisly, ugly horror.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    With A Walk Among the Tombstones, the names have been changed but the story’s all too familiar. Speaking of which, "Taken 3" is on its way.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    A Walk Among the Tombstones is well paced and fairly watchable, but it does take itself desperately seriously.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    So stupid and hateful, it needs to have a stake driven through its heart before it can spawn a franchise.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Neeson is the rock anchoring all this, making the incredible at least passably credible as he lurches into the frame with his limping boxer’s gait. But you get the sense that he is no more “Taken” with this than we are.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    All of Scott Frank's thematic concerns are little more than window dressing for a run-of-the-mill detective story in line with '90s thrillers like The Bone Collector.
