Liam Neeson, Guy Pearce and Monica Bellucci star in Action Film Memory
Harold Torres stars in the film directed by Martin Campbell, director of “Goldeneye” and “Casino Royale”.
Liam Neeson has put together some interesting co-stars for his latest action thriller memorywho will see him from Guy Pearce, Monica Bellucci and Harold Torres, Colliders Former Offspring of the Month by ZeroZeroZero.
The film comes from Martin Campbell, Director of the James Bond films Gold eye and Casino royaleand finds Neeson, who plays Alex Lewis, “a skilled assassin with a reputation for discreet precision”. In other words, an assassin. I mean, there isn’t a huge margin of error in this industry. You don’t see too many assassins in movies. But I digress …
One day Alex, who in no way should be confused with Bryan Mills from Taken Fame, refuses to do a job for a dangerous criminal organization and quickly becomes its target, forcing him to hunt down those who want him dead. Alex has special abilities that help him stay one step ahead of both the Criminal Syndicate and the FBI, but there is only one problem: he is grappling with severe memory loss that affects his every move. As details blur and his enemies draw closer, Alex has to question every one of his actions, in addition to those he can truly trust.

Emmy winner Pearce faces a big April as he plays opposite Michael B. Jordan Action film newly acquired in Amazon Without regretsand plays Kate Winslet‘s love interest in HBO’s limited series Mare from Easttown, which premieres next Sunday.
Meanwhile, Bellucci is coming out of the recent release of the Oscar-nominated drama T.The man who sold his skinI’ve only heard good things about. Like Campbell, she’s a graduate of the 007 franchise who performed on the side Daniel Craig in the spook.
But the selling point for me here is Torres, who featured in Amazon’s underrated drug drama ZeroZeroZero and was recently signed by ICM Partners and Mosaic. I look forward to seeing him in more films, and I’m glad he has a bit more visibility when he shares the big screen with Neeson. I observe Honest thief with my dad a few weeks ago and told him that Neeson’s young co-star was Anthony Ramos would soon become a big star, which surprised him given the size and nature of his role in the film. A few weeks later, he grabbed the lead in a new one Transformer Movie. The point I want to make here is that Torres may one day become the star of a global action franchise. You never know…
