Briarcliff Entertainment has released an official trailer for The Marksman. It is Liam Neeson‘s latest old man action movie that will surely be enjoyed by his die hard fans.
Yup, that’s a Liam Neeson action movie alright. I have mostly enjoyed every action movie Neeson has churned out in the last decade. Recently, the output hasn’t been as strong as say Taken or Non-Stop, but there were still things to enjoy in The Commuter and Cold Pursuit. I’m hoping The Marksman will deliver some truly great Neeson moments.
Hardened Arizona rancher Jim Hanson (Liam Neeson) simply wants to be left alone as he fends off eviction notices and tries to make a living on an isolated stretch of borderland. But everything changes when Hanson, an ex-Marine sharpshooter, witnesses 11-year-old migrant Miguel (Jacob Perez) fleeing with his mother Rosa (Teresa Ruiz) from drug cartel assassins led by the ruthless Mauricio (Juan Pablo Raba). After being caught in a shoot-out, a dying Rosa begs Jim to take her son to safety to her family in Chicago. Defying his cop daughter Sarah (Katheryn Winnick), Jim sneaks Miguel out of the local U.S. Customs and Border Patrol station and together, they hit the road with the group of killers in pursuit. Jim and Miguel slowly begin to overcome their differences and begin to forge an unlikely friendship, while Mauricio and his fellow assassins blaze a cold-blooded trail, hot on their heels. When they finally meet on a Midwestern farm, a fight to the death ensues as Jim uses his military skills and code of honor to defend the boy he’s come to love.
The Marksman hits theaters January 22, 2020.
