Film of the Day: Blacklight

Blacklight - Liam Neeson

Action thriller starring Liam Neeson as a man with a ‘very particular set of skills’, who would have guessed it?

World weary intelligence ‘Fixer’ Travis Block (Neeson) is planning his retirement but his handlers have other plans for him and send him to bring in a deep cover agent who has gone rogue.

When his target is shot dead, he begins to dig a little deeper into the background of the case and uncovers a deep state plot to eliminate opposition voices within the US.

Needless to say, he’s not too comfortable with the idea of being implicated in such an operation and confronts his handlers. At this point the film goes full Neeson action thriller.

This is an enjoyable, if predictable, actioner with the gravel-voiced big man doing what he does best – shootin’, punchin’ and blowin’ stuff up!

Blacklight – Thursday at 10.45pm on Sky Cinema Premier.
