Liam Neeson

Happy Birthday to

Liam Neeson

59 today

An odd thing has happened to the Ulster born Liam Neeson. Up until the middle of the last decade he was a serious actor with a string of high profile award chasing roles. Then he played Henri Ducard in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins which showed the world he could kick some serious ass and the post Taken Neeson was born. I really hope to see a return to more adult fare at some point in the future, as it is there's nothing on his slate that looks remotely watchable.

Sometimes you just want to watch a movie with a guy kicking ass, so there's a certain amount of worth in that.

You're right, sometimes that's all you want but as his turn in The Grey proved he works better when kicking ass with some metaphysical strife going on as well.
