Do they even need to market Liam Neeson movies anymore? Is there a film fan on the planet who doesn’t see Liam Neeson in a new film and automatically knows what the plot is about? Well, just in case, here’s the trailer for the newest action-thriller with a vague title starring Liam Neeson, “Blacklight.”
As seen in the trailer for “Blacklight,” Liam Neeson is a secret government fixer guy who has to kill lots of bad guys before he retires to be the world’s best grandpa. Sure, there’s more to it than that. There’s some sort of terrorist group with grand plans and there’s some sort of shadow group with an ominous nickname. Things that are serving nothing more than just plot points to get Neeson from kicking ass in one area to kicking ass in another. We all know the drill.
“Blacklight” arrives in theaters on February 11. You can watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Trust, identity, and the danger of unchecked power push a covert operative to the edge in director Mark Williams’ intense action thriller Blacklight. Travis Block (Neeson) lives and fights in the shadows. A freelance government “fixer,” Block is a dangerous man whose assignments have included extracting agents out of deep-cover situations. When Block discovers a shadowy program called Operation Unity is striking down ordinary citizens for reasons known only to Block’s boss, FBI chief Robinson (Quinn), he enlists the help of a journalist (Raver-Lampman), but his past and present collide when his daughter and granddaughter are threatened. Now Block needs to rescue the people he loves and expose the truth for a shot at redemption. Nothing and no one is safe when secrets are hidden in Blacklight.”
