Friday means it’s movie day, and Great Day TV’s Patty Spitler is back this week with her picks! These are fresh films that were just released today.
Liam Neeson’s new action-thriller, Memory,” is up first.
It’s a bloody mess, but also a well-crafted film about a lone wolf assassin. Known for his discreet killing skills, Liam Neeson as Alex now finds himself a target as he refuses to complete a job, so now the crime syndication and the FBI are on his tail.
Plus, this is all complicated because his character is in the starting stages of Alzheimer’s and he struggles with severe memory loss.
Runtime: 1 hour 54 minutes
Rating: R for violence
Availability: In theaters nationally
Patty’s score: 4 out of 5 guns
