Liam Neeson turned 70 this year, but the action career that the ex-character actor embarked on in his older days after his berserk show “96 Hours – Taken” in 2008 is still not the end in sight. Although Neeson has repeatedly asserted that there is really an end to hit-and-run hits like “Non-Stop” or “Run All Night”, but even if that is the case, we still have a few already wacky works ahead of us same color into the house.
Only shortly after the Amazon hit “Blacklight”, Neeson fans can now also look forward to the action thriller “Memory – His Last Order”, which stars the former “Schindler’s List” with “GoldenEye” and “Casino Royale”. ‘ director Martin Campbell brought together.

“Memory” is a remake of the Belgian thriller “The Alzheimer Case – made dead” or a remake of the novel of the same name on which it is based. However, this was only partially successful, as you can read in detail in our review of the film:
It is particularly unfortunate that “Memory” does not exploit the full potential of its exciting premise: The main character Alex Lewis is namely a hard-nosed contract killer – so far, according to Neeson – who, however, is struggling with progressive Alzheimer’s disease. Therefore he wants to retire after one last assignment. But he doesn’t have the heart to eliminate a 13-year-old target – who is murdered shortly afterwards anyway. The investigators led by FBI agent Vincent Serra (Guy Pearce) are targeting Alex, who tries to find out on his own what is really going on here…
Since Liam Neeson convinces again with his stoic presence in “Memory”, fans of the actor’s late action career can take a look despite all the criticisms, but many other Neeson vehicles definitely offer stronger genre fare.
