We were able to screen The Marksman movie thanks to Briarcliff Entertainment. All opinions are my own.
I love Liam Neeson. I have watched him all my life and own many of his movies. He is just so good at owning any role he plays, and he did not disappoint. The movie keeps your attention with twists and turns that keep you guessing. We did sit through the credits and there is nothing at the end of The Marksman.
The boy, Miguel, played by Jacob Perez and Jim Hanson played by Liam Neeson, work so well together. Also, the first few minutes of the movie is in Spanish with subtitles, but this part sets the whole movie up, so be sure to pay attention to the subtitles if you don’t speak Spanish.
I am always excited when new movies come out that I can watch with my family (in other words PG-13 or below). The movie shows some violence, and there are a few swears, (including 1 F-word), but overall I felt like even my 13-year-old could watch it. It may be too violent or have too heavy of a storyline for younger kids, so I would advise previewing it first to see for yourself.
The Marksman is action-packed and everything I was hoping for and more.
It comes out in theaters this weekend! Be sure to get tickets now since they tend to sell out fast. Visit https://www.themarksmanmovie.com/
About The Marksman
Hardened Arizona rancher Jim Hanson (Liam Neeson) simply wants to be left alone as he fends off eviction notices and tries to make a living on an isolated stretch of borderland. But everything changes when Hanson, an ex-Marine, witnesses 11-year-old migrant Miguel (Jacob Perez) fleeing with his mother Rosa (Teresa Ruiz) from drug cartel assassins led by the ruthless Mauricio (Juan Pablo Raba). After being caught in a shoot-out, an injured Rosa begs Jim to take her son to safety to her family in Chicago. Defying his stepdaughter Sarah (Katheryn Winnick), Jim sneaks Miguel out of the local U.S. Customs and Border Patrol station, and together, they hit the road with the group of killers in pursuit. Jim and Miguel slowly begin to overcome their differences and begin to forge an unlikely friendship, while Mauricio and his fellow assassins blaze a cold-blooded trail, hot on their heels.
