Liam Neeson plays Dirty Harry-like ex-cop in ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’

Meet private detective Matt Scudder. You’re going to be seeing more of him. A retired NYPD police detective and AA regular, who occasionally offers his services to “friends” in need, he is a Dirty Harry for a new generation, and yet another avatar of the great Irish actor Liam Neeson.
