This is a movie about two psychopaths and the unlicensed private eye who goes after them. Liam Neeson stars as the PI who was a police officer and is now a recovering alcoholic (surprise, surprise). The duo of kidnappiers are targeting the families of criminal drug dealers. Scudder comes off as unscrupulous and sympathetic, as he picks up a teenage side kick whom he sort of mentors. Real violence and nasty characters. From a Lawrence Block book. Dennis and I loved it.
