“Honest Thief”, a new Liam Neeson movie, will be out again on December 15, 2020 in France. In this action movie, the Irish actor plays a bank thief alongside – among others – Kate Walsh.
Good news for American action movie fans: Liam Neeson is back this Fall on the silver screen with “Honest Thief”. Directed by Netflix Series “Ozark” showrunner Mark Williams, “Honest Thief” is only his second picture, and will be out again as movie theaters reopen on December 15, 2020 in France.
After “Men In Black: International”, “Cold Pursuit”, and even “The Commuter” over the past years, it is in an action movie – his specialty – that Liam Neeson returns.
In “Honest Thief”, he plays opposite to Kate Walsh (13 Reasons Why, Umbrella Academy, Grey’s Anatomy, and even Private Practice), Anthony Ramos (A Star is Born, Godzilla: King of the Monsters), Robert Patrick (True Blood, Scorpio), and Jefferey Donovan (Sicario, Burn Notice).
Legendary bank thief Tom (Neeson) decides to settle down and concludes a deal, in exchange of his immunity, with the FBI as they never been able to catch him.
He quickly realizes that the Federals have another plan in mind: sharing his loot and have him charged with murder.
Trapped, chased down by the police and the FBI, he decides to take things in hand and throw himself into an explosive revenge.
No, for the first time, in "Honest Thief" Liam Neeson does not play a father whose daughter has been kidnapped, neither a father whose son has been murdered. In this thriller, the actor plays a robber, but an (almost) honest thief, since he recently fell in love and has decided to surrender. But of course, nothing will go as planned.
In "Honest Thief", Neeson does Neeson, and this is why we love him.
His love interest - played by Kate Walsh - is as lovely as moving. Yet we cannot believe that Walsh - soon to be 52 - is still a student.
Actions, fights, gunshots, car races... Everything that makes an action movie is gathered in "Honest Thief". Even though it will probably not be a movie classic, "Honest Thief" opens in movie theaters and is likely to delight action movie fans that do not have much to enjoy during these troubled times. "Honest Thief" is entertaining and this is all we need for now.
