In the realm of Liam Neeson films, a familiar narrative unfolds – an action-packed journey where he battles insurmountable odds to protect his loved ones. “Retribution” follows suit, with Neeson’s signature resilience in a high-stakes chase against time, albeit marred by execution hiccups.
In “Retribution,” Neeson plays Matt Turner, a formidable banker striving to harmonize his professional and personal spheres. A seemingly ordinary day takes a treacherous turn when he receives a call in his car, a chilling warning of a bomb beneath his seat. The threat? Detonate the bomb if he exits the vehicle.
Thus ensues an enthralling cat-and-mouse pursuit, replete with suspense, plot twists, and a sprinkle of action, as Matt races to safeguard his children and outwit the assailant. While the premise holds promise, the film’s execution falters, rendering it an unexceptional experience.
The climax rushes by, leaving a sense of haste as if the director sought a swift conclusion rather than a satisfying one.
Neeson’s performance rescues the flawed thriller, his adept portrayal evoking every emotion – pain, agony, guilt – with authenticity, drawing the audience into Matt’s odyssey. Notably, Matthew Modine adds depth as a capricious character, injecting intrigue into the narrative. Yet, the remainder of the cast struggles to showcase their acting prowess.
In spite of its promising start, “Retribution” is relegated to a solitary viewing due to its execution flaws and shortcomings.
