Honest Thief – Review

Liam Neeson once again slips into his Taken role that catapulted him into an action star

Thrills and excitement are up for grabs in HONEST THIEF which tells the action packed story of a career bank robber keen to turn himself in for the sake of love, only to be double-crossed by two ruthless FBI agents. Tom (Liam Neeson, Taken) is a lot of things, but two in particular: an infamous thief and a newfound romantic. His feelings for his new flame Annie (Kate Walsh, Greys Anatomy) have inspired him to right his past wrongs and leave behind his life of crime. Although he has always worked with integrity and precision, exclusively carrying out non-violent bank jobs, he does not want his relationship with Annie to be built upon lies. He resolves to turn himself in to the FBI and forfeit the money he has stolen in return for a plea deal and a clean slate.

When he calls the Boston FBI field office to confess and set a meeting, Agents Baker (Robert Patrick, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and Meyers (Jeffrey Donovan, Burn Notice) laugh it off as a prank. They send their subordinates, Agents Nivens (Jai Courtney, Suicide Squad) and Hall (Anthony Ramos, Trolls World Tour), instead. The two younger agents are shocked to discover that Tom is the real deal and see Tom’s stolen money as their golden ticket to a better life. And so begins a cat-and mouse game where good and bad become tangled but love always rings true.

Honestly its a great film, Liam Neeson once again slips into his Taken role that catapulted him into an action star in this soft and fluffy action piece that has enough elements to keep you on the edge of your seat for the films duration. The supporting cast is stellar with great turns from Jai Courtney who always nails it as the villain of the piece and Kate Walsh as the love interest Annie, where you find yourself wanting to scream, Annie are you ok, are you ok Annie.

This is a great film that hits the right notes in the action thriller stakes and gives more dept to its characters which keeps you entertained. Honest Thief is honestly a cracking film.
