Honest Thief (2020)



Critic Consensus: Guilty of first-degree squandering, Honest Thief returns Liam Neeson to late-period action thriller mode but neglects to supply much of a story.

Critic Reviews for Honest Thief

With Neeson well within the confines of his comfort zone, tailed by corrupt cops and diving out of hotel windows, the film should be better. Yet it drags...

Honest Thief is a small-scale, low-budget, minor-league affair. That wouldn't be a problem if cinematographer Shelly Johnson had the imagination to compensate for the lack of spectacle, but the story is as familiar as it is tame.

Liam Neeson was 56 when Taken came out in 2008, launching his vengeful vigilante phase. Twelve years on, he's still churning out serviceable action thrillers like this one...

By the standards of Liam Neeson thrillers, Honest Thief is pretty weak tea, a passable, low-octane action movie that doesn't do much more than steal one's time.

The romance is sweet, but the action is nowhere near plausible.

October 16, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A tedious, overlong embarrassment that not even Liam Neeson's craggy countenance can save.
