The Marksman [Movie Review]

The Marksman [Movie Review] | After watching Taken (yes, I've watched all three of them), I think Liam Neeson is one bad-a*s daddy that no one should mess with. He's not the physical type of fighter - I think - he's good with his weapons, in almost all of his movies.

So yeah, why should I skip this one too.

As all pensioners do (well, almost all the pensioners in my family at least), Jim lives and works in his ranch which is located along the Arizona - Mexican border. And he patrols his ranch daily and reports to the border patrol if he finds any Mexican citizen stranded in his ranch after failing/ too sick to continue on their attempt to enter Arizona illegally. 

One particular day, he encounters Rosa and her son, Miguel as they both crosses the border. He stops them and before he manages to call the border patrol on them, a group of people in a car arrives on the other side of the fence. And before long, al of them involves in a shootout. Jim and the duo manages to escape the cartel led by Mauricio, with Jim manages to shoot and kill Mauricio's brother. Whereas Rosa is injured and also killed during the shootout. Before she dies, she gives Jim her family's address in Chicago.

The patrol arrives and takes Miguel to the station. However, when Jim sees one of the cartel members comes in and allowed entry by the patrol, Jim decides to help Miguel gets to his family in Chicago.

So, the journey for both of these strangers start. And the cartel follows them, after allowed entry into the country by a corrupt border patrol officer. 

The cartel manages to track the duo down because Jim pays for everything using his credit card. Once, the duo was pulled over by a cop who later Jim realised was a corrupt cop and is tracing them down on behalf of the cartel. He subdued the police and hid. A moment later, Mauricio and his members arrive. They execute the policeman while Jim and Miguel watch from a distance.

MY REVIEW

Plot: 3.8/ 5.0 Literally, it is like any of the Taken franchises. Bad guys chases good guys and the good guys win in the end. 

It's the actions and how cunning each and everyone try to outdo the others that keep me coming for this kind of movie. 

Cast: 4.3/ 5.0 You may call me biased but I simply adore Liam Neeson in his movies. And the others are equally good in their delivery. 

Will I watch it again: I will, whenever I need that extra adrenaline rush. 

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
