Aging action hero strikes again - Blacklight (2022) - Review

Travis Block is a government operative coming to terms with his shadowy past. When he discovers a plot targeting U.S. citizens, Block finds himself in the crosshairs of the FBI director he once helped protect.

Liam Neeson keeps playing these broken killers that we are supposed to empathize with and cheer for when he kills all the bad guys by the end of the movie. I feel myself caring less and less about these characters as they all seem to blend together into one glob of an action role. There is nothing new here, and with the main character having a crisis of conscience after doing so many bad things it simply is not believable anymore. Where is all the good action movies gone? We are left with woke heroes that are in touch with their feelings. I long for the action heroes of my youth. The Stallones and Schwarzeneggers. Let's get back to the fun action heroes that were for saving the captives and killing the bad guys.

Ranking 5/10
