- Growing Up Bronx
I just caught “Memory” with Liam Neeson. It’s a movie about a hitman who’s got a conscience, and he refuses to harm a child. That decision ends up kicking off a whole mess of problems for our guy Liam.
The story takes us deep into the world of some wealthy folks who are into the nasty business of human trafficking and abusing kids. Like the usual script, the rich and powerful use their clout to cover up their terrible crimes.
As the plot thickens, Liam Neeson’s character figures out that on the very day he spared the little girl, someone else came in and took her life. That’s when he decides to take it upon himself to get justice for the innocent kid who was nothing but a victim from the start.
Oh, and here’s the twist: Liam’s character is dealing with dementia. That adds a whole new layer to the story. He’s got unlikely allies in law enforcement, but you also have some dirty cops who are ready to sell out to the highest bidder.
The movie keeps you on the edge of your seat with some pretty satisfying moments. I’d say, don’t miss this one; it’s a real rollercoaster of a film!
