Be it land, air or on a train, one thing is certain – don’t mess with Liam Neeson. He may be 65 years old but the Irish American actor is capable of kicking the hell out of you if you decide to mess with him in any way. If you stay away from him, he is a friend for life but if you try to get involved with his daily routine, he will ‘not look for you, will not pursue you but will find you and kill you.’
The Commuter (2018)
In his latest flick, Liam Neeson’s character (whatever the name) commutes daily through the train – from home to office, from office to home. On the day he is fired from his job, he encounters a mysterious woman who guarantees him a whole lot of money if he points out the ‘odd person out’ in the train. Despite the involvement of murder, accidents, threats and a lot of such things, Liam Neeson manages to save his family without descending from the train, catch the culprit without anybody’s help and save the passengers on the train (despite a few) without having superpowers.
Batman Begins (2005)
In the first half of this Christopher Nolan classic, Liam Neeson’s character helps Bruce Wayne in every possible way, yet after disclosing his identity as Ra’s Al Ghul, he became his number one enemy. Just imagine that had there been someone less privileged than Bruce Wayne aka Batman, how he would have fared or you can ask how badly he would have fared against the man who doesn’t give up or dies in case of Ra’s Al Ghul.
Would you believe it if I told you that Liam Neeson was not the first choice for the role of Bryan Mills? Jeff Bridges was approached for the character but his refusal made way for Neeson who didn’t believe the film would go onto become one of the biggest hits of all times. However, we can’t think of anyone else delivering the lines ‘I will hunt you’ than Liam Neeson who made sure that no matter what you are, where you are or who you are, if you mess with his family, your bad luck has turned worse.
Taken 2 (2012)
He is still the most dangerous man in the world, what if he is on vacations with his family. When his daughter and wife are ‘taken’, Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills takes them down like never before. He kills all those who come between him and his family and in the end nails down the guy who wanted to take him down, for taking down his father in the original flick. Some people never learn!
Liam Neeson plays a Field Air Marshal in this flick where he literally plays Bryan Mills in Air! The film revolves a transatlantic flight where every 20 minutes a passenger will die if the ransom isn’t paid. Liam Neeson’s character emerges as the hero but not after a handful of passengers including the pilot die in the process. What’s the best thing is that the hijacker dies in the end and the passengers who might not have made out had Bill Marks (Liam’s character) not intervened. Don’t mess with him, I tell you!
