Blacklight (2022)

“You name it; I’ve probably done it.” – Travis Block

Number of Times Seen – 1 (6 Mar 2022)

Brief Synopsis – A government agent discovers that his boss is using the government to kill innocent people and tries to put a stop to it.

My Take on it – Another very typical Liam Neeson driven film.

The story is a bit too silly and simplistic and fails to give the viewer anything really unique along the way.

The character he plays seems like a doppelganger of many similar roles that have come his way over the past few years and that doesn’t manage to help make things more enjoyable.

This are a bit too predictable along the way and there are few too many surprises that might have made things more enjoyable to watch.

His character once again is trying to make amends with family members he neglected over the years, but it doesn’t feel genuine enough in the way this all plays out.

As with any movie in this kind of genre, there is lots of action, but the story is far too thin to help keep things more engaging or interesting unless someone plans to just turn off their brain for 90 minutes and watch a disaster happen in front of them.

In addition to Neeson, this film stars Aidan Quinn, but his character isn’t developed on any level more than a superficial one and that also hurts things a bit too much as things progress.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The fourth Liam Neeson action film to be released in the month of February, after Unknown (2011), Non-Stop (2014), and Cold Pursuit (2019). (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
