Liam Neeson kills down 'Memory' lane

“Memory” is an interesting title for the latest Liam Neeson thriller.

Do you remember the last Liam Neeson thriller? Or the one before that? Who was it that got took in that one?

It began getting hard to tell these films from one another years ago, and yet they've kept coming.

“Key & Peele” only seems more prophetic for making the actor's name plural. “Liam Neesons” is right. He contains, and kills, multitudes.

“Memory,” which opens in theatres Friday, doesn't much alter the formula but makes for a brutal and bleak variation on the Liam Neeson theme.

It casts a broader, more interwoven noir tapestry set around the Texas borderlands, with an ensemble cast including Guy Pearce, Monica Bellucci, and Ray Stevenson.

If you come to “Memory” hoping Neeson is going to growl one-liners like “Commit THAT to memory!” or “If memory serves me correctly, you're toast!”

Does that make it good? Well, I wouldn't go that far. The filmmaking, by Martin Campbell, the British director of thrillers both glossy and gritty.

“Memory,” an Open Road release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for for violence..

...some bloody images and language throughout. Running time: 114 minutes. Two stars out of four.
