Liam Neeson has come a long way since the Taken trilogy! The actor has become an essential figure in action cinema and this is not his new film Memory which will prove otherwise. Discover in this article the synopsis of the film as well as the very first trailer which promises to be heavy!
When your memory fails you
In Memory, Liam Neeson plays Alex Lewis, an exceptionally skilled but aging hitman. Alex also shows the first signs of Alzheimer’s disease, but he continues to chain contracts. Everything changes when he discovers that he is actually being asked to erase the traces of a major pedophile network. Alex will turn around and clean up the network in question before his memory fails him for good. He also purposely leaves traces behind him for the policeman Vincent Serra who is also trying to dismantle the network.
In this action film, Liam Neeson will co-star with Guy Pearce and Monica Bellucci. Directing we have Martin Campbell who is known for directing two James Bond films (GoldenEye with Pierce Brosnan and Casino Royale with Daniel Craig).
A film that promises to be gripping
As you will have understood, Memory is a film that promises action and twists galore. But the story is not just about that, because the character of Alex promises to be interesting. We see in fact that he is someone who is very tortured and whose spirit is bit by bit eaten away by illness. In these last moments of lucidity, Alex wants to do something “good” by eliminating all these people who commit atrocities against children. Will he succeed or will he end up losing his mind before achieving his goals? We will have to wait until April 29, 2022 to find out!
