The movie is about a guy working for his best friend, a mob boss, and must decide where his loyalties lie after a series of events puts his son on his friend's bad side.
Liam Neeson did a good job of portraying a father whose beaten down by life, filled with regret and his past sins weighing in him. You feel for him and the condition he is in. Ed Harris plays the Mob boss, who was also good in his role. And these two had good interaction with each other, like you can see that had a proper history and are close. Almost everyone was good in this film.
There were a lot of subplots in the movie but instead of getting lost in them completely, it executed them fairly well and gave the most amount of time to the main thing, the father and his son. The resentment of Liam neeson's son towards him and their slow development while he tries to save him was handled very well. The pacing of the film did stumbled at times but mostly it was consistent. There were two scenes that reminded me of the classic film 'Heat', like it was paying a homage to it or something and both were great.
The action scenes were pretty decent, except for the chase scene, which just had too many cuts.
