okay.... Whomever did the subs into English on this, I'll have what they're smoking. Goodluck to all those who don't speak both Anglais et Espagnol.
Liam , Liam short memory or not he can still pull it off , AMEN!! Very dark movie but ....
I liked it! Liam Neison and Guy Pearce were great in their roles as hitman and FBI agent. I think that the director did a great job with the script. Liam became the hero despite being a hitman all because of his motivation. Movies like this bring awareness of the horrendous crimes being perpetrated by the rich. I recommend taking a peak at this one. I do not think that you will be disappointed.
A nice change from Liam Neeson's last few movies as he has a bit more range in "Memory", but nothing that really challenges him like his films from the past ("Five Minutes of Heaven" 2009; "Gangs of New York" 2002; "Michael Collins" 1996; "Nell" 1994). Oh Liam's got more in the Thespian tank than this to fuel up a role; he's not even pressing the accelerator at all in "Memory". It's a decent film, but it is not "memorable". Even the portrayal of Alzheimer's is medically inaccurate. The story arc and subject matter are both handling in a sub-par and expected manner. What does make this a watchable film is indeed Liam (as "Alex Lewis") and Guy Pearce (as "Vincent Serra"). Although the backstories for their characters (or any others for that matter) is on the minimal side of minimal, they manage to deliver solidly for their respective screen time(s). The story itself is predictable; especially because it treats the subject matter, a serious violation of human rights / human trafficking, with so little aplomb or respect. This movie is an attempt at serious story-telling that is easily forgotten, because they were only going for an action movie that makes money. It's definitely a movie worth watching. ...
That was a pretty good movie. Really like Liam and this had enough of a twist to make it interesting. Well worth watching. 7.5-10
Mr Neeson offered to me in this movie some serious acting, and for all the years I am watching his works, I sense the fruits of his experience handed generously. The script, as common in action movies, will support the gun culture and the culture of personal revenge over institutions and laws. Destroying chances for consensus of common practices, widely accepted from the Government and it's laws, it builds wide acceptance over the revenge for a topic that made us cry or get mad at some point. The child abuse. Truly, initial Alzheimer can strike emotions overflow, something that makes script reasonable, likewise the helpless police serving the interests of rich and corrupted people. So the one killing people and getting payed for this thrived over the corruption, before it's last breath, murdering murderers. And the Mexican policeman cuts the throat of the corrupted rich woman, wearing a hood and burning every evidence after this. Wonderful! Life sucks less now and I've selected the proper silencer for my handgun, watching in this film the justice weapon of my unsolved Social problems spreading pure justice. ...
Wow that was a good movie I liked the part when he curl motorcycle cop 👮🏾♀️ like chicken on. The ground haa haa dropped him soooo funny
Oh wow! This film was good, I liked the way how evolved with that unexpected ending since I was hoping for a different one but that was great, and at first this film felt like slow but good and kept getting better and better. Great acting performance from every one and story line well written, in my opinion this film was good from start to end.
I forgot not to watch this idiotic movie.
This movie was awesome! No wonder considering the talent involved - including Monica Bellucci and (one of my favorite actors) Guy Pearce. And also the fine director Martin Campbell, who directed Vertical Limit, the recent film The Protege, and some great James Bond films over the years. This is my kind of movie.
My expectations for this movie are so high because Liam is the main character but when I finished watching it I was very disappointed, especially at the end, I was like what the heck?! that's it?!
Great movie. Thrilling and action packed. Every moment is exciting. Worth watching with family and friends. The one thing that stands out in this movie is that justice is always uncertain especially if you are dealing with wealthy, greedy, powerful and big people. no matter what you do. justice is always one sided.
MEMORY – Liam Neeson - Hit Man with Alzheimer's
Classic signature Liam Neeson film with a twist – a hit-man with Alzheimer's losing his short-term memory and what’s left of his mind! That said, at age 69 Liam still has the chops and pulls it off taking on his employers – a Mexican cartel involved with sex trafficking young underage Mexican girls.
It has an international cast including Guy Pierce as the FBI field agent with his Mexican counterpart, played by Antonio Jaramillo (Snowfall) his nemesis, cartel boss played by Italian actress Monica Bellucci (Matrix 1&2 and another great movie with Clive Owen ‘Shoot ‘em Up) The El Paso sheriff is played by the great Irish actor Ray Stevenson (was in Vikings and played Blackbeard in Black Sails – although, in this role as a Texan, his American accent drifts from NYC/Bklyn to a Texas twang.. oh well..)
It’s a textbook plot we’ve seen many times but there are some twists and Liam delivers. ...
