CRITICS RATING:

2.5/5 Stars

WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

Jim Hanson (Liam Neeson), a retired Marine living on the Mexican border, tries to save a mother and son as they are being hunted by a cartel. After the mother dies, Jim must take the child to Chicago.

WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

Eastwood's former 1st AD-turned-director Robert Lorenz leads with an uncluttered visual style, a respect for his characters framed in juxtaposition with the land that would make his former boss proud. - Scott Marks, San Diego Reader

While that stuff might be new to this guy, we've seen it all before. - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

Not a great movie, but courtesy of director Robert Lorenz, a lean, plausibly entertaining one with all the fixin's and none of the extra flab of deep, incisive meaning. - K. Austin Collins, Rolling Stone

As a bare-minimum action flick, The Marksman is mostly serviceable. - Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
