Liam Neeson is a bad-ass killing machine (on screen, at least). We’ve known this since the early days of Darkman, but just how much of a badass is he? Well, pretty badass considering the man pulls double duty as both a Jedi master and Batman’s mentor. But just how badass are we talking? Is he Jack Bauer badass? Han Solo badass? Star-Lord badass? Well, it seems Universal is looking to answer that question with something awesome they’ve released to help promote the actor’s latest film, A Walk Among the Tombstones: a kill chart tracking all of the Liam’s “activities” across the many film universes he inhabits (you’ll understand when you see):
The glaring omission of The A-Team aside, it comes as no surprise that Taken is the winner of this battle. You don’t steal Liam Neeson’s daughter. It’s like line 1, page 1 in the bad guy manual, “Don’t steal the daughter of the Neesons, for ye shall have the vengeance of a thousand suns wrought down upon thee.” That’s a direct quote.
However, while Taken may have taken (wink wink) the lead in the competition, there are some worthy runner ups, like The Phantom Menace. It really was a shame that Master Qui-Gon Jinn had to die for Anakin to live. When one considers the best things about the prequel trilogy, Qui-Gon is probably at the top the list, being the worthy wielder of the Force he was.
So the lesson here is simple: don’t mess with Liam Neesons because unlike The Hunger Games, the odds are never in your favor.
A Walk Among the Tombstones hits theaters September 19th.
