Honest Thief–Liam Neeson returns to the big screen… for vengeance

It was only a year ago that we reviewed Cold Pursuit here at borg, which star Liam Neeson revealed to be his final movie.  So what’s with the new movie Honest Thief Not that we’re complaining–Neeson is back again in revenge mode just as we like him best, plus he’s bringing a fun group of some of our favorite action genre stars.  The plot?  Neeson plays a man in love, a man in love who is a thief.  But he wants to turn over a new leaf.  But circumstances keep pulling him back in… into Taken and The Commuter’s vengeance Liam Neeson.

Neeson is joined by Kate Walsh (The Umbrella Academy), Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), Anthony Ramos (Hamilton), Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice), and Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys).

Check out the trailer for Honest Thief:

This is apparently another studio low-expectation flick since it’s being released during the pandemic.  Still, at minimum we have a potentially fun Neeson action vehicle coming to a streaming provider near you in the not-so-distant future.

Look for Honest Thief in theaters (and possibly a home release via Vudu or other provider) October 9, 2020.
