Liam Neeson is the ultimate modern American cinema action hero, as he has become best known in recent years for playing strong-willed protagonists who willing take any means necessary to protect and save people in need.

The movie was directed by Academy Award nominee Robert Lorenz (‘American Sniper,’ ‘Mystic River’).
‘The Marksman’ follows ex-Marine and hardened Arizona rancher Jim Hanson (Neeson), who simply wants to be left alone as he tries to make a living on an isolated stretch of borderland. But everything changes when he witnesses 11-year-old migrant Miguel (Perez) and his mother, Rosa (Ruiz), as they’re fleeing from a band of assassins sent by a ruthless drug cartel. After being caught in a shoot-out, Miguel’s mother begs Jim to take her son to the safety of their family in Chicago. Defying law-enforcement, Jim and Miguel hit the road and slowly begin to forge an unlikely friendship, while the cartel’s relentless assassins blaze a bloody trail, hot on their heels.
Besides Neeson, ‘Honest Thief’ also stars Kate Walsh (‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’), Jai Courtney (‘Terminator Genisys,’ ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’), Anthony Ramos (‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters,’ ‘Hamilton’), Jeffrey Donovan (‘Burn Notice,’ ‘Sicario’) and Robert Patrick (‘Terminator 2: Judgment,’ ‘The Unit’). The film was written, directed and produced by Mark Williams (‘Ozark,’ ‘The Accountant’).
‘Honest Thief’ follows the title character, Tom Carter (Neeson), who has stolen $9 million from small-town banks while keeping his identity a secret. But after he falls in love with the bubbly Annie (Walsh), Tom decides to come clean about his criminal past, only to be double-crossed by two ruthless FBI agents. Packed with action, the thriller is a tale of redemption and one man’s mission to make things right for the sake of love.
