FX Movie Channel Presents In Character with Liam Neeson
Poop. The only fun about this movie is... to make fun of it. I can't believe that one of my favorite directors has fallen back on a franchise like this. But maybe it started with Léon.
I even used to like Liam Neeson. But not after this, and some other movies.
Oh well. Guess that some filmmakers live too much in the "presence". But that gives at least me more fuel on the fire and say that "no, I disapprove". There's room for objective analysis.
