Quotes

Jimmy Conlon: The things I did, the things I've seen, it becomes who you are. You can't just go home and scrub it off. The only way I could protect you was to walk away. Forget about you and your mom. I wanted a better life for you than the one I chose for myself.

Spoilers Ahead:

The movie this is most like is Unforgiven. An evil monster who hates what he is and is feared and loathed by all who meet him. Michael, his estranged son, keeps his family a long way from Jimmy. Only the mob boss, now going legitimate, who feels guilty for making Jimmy the monster he is, will associate with him. Like Unforgiven, Jimmy is sucked into events that make him return to the killing monster he was. Michael witnesses Danny, Shawn's son, shooting some heroin dealers, and Danny decides to kill Michael. Once Jimmy shoots Danny to prevent him from killing Michael, the old nightmare returns. The best line to understand Jimmy is his answer to the cop,"Just because I'm not in prison doesn't mean I'm not being punished." Forgive the moralist, I enjoy movies dissonant with today's decadent libertinism that dare to depict Evil as its own punishment. Yes, it is and how rare in a modern American movie. The film follows Jimmy protecting Michael one nightmarish night. Along the way, Michael learns to see the man inside of the monster. I liked where Jimmy said he had to leave them to protect them from the monster he had become.

These characters are not the cardboard cut outs of Taken. Good and Evil are blended together like real human beings. Even after Jimmy shoots Shawn, there still is affection between them. As he dies in his arms, the complexity that is the quintessence of dichotomous creatures both light and night is delineated well. Yes, the movie is violent, graphic and ugly in parts. I could have lived without seeing Shawn repeatedly stabbing Danny's partner in the back. Jimmy kills plenty of people coming for Michael. I admit the critics are right about the final shot with the rifle; it was pure fantasy. It is not important not to miss the forest for the trees with this movie. The microcosmic image of this film is dead Jimmy clutching in his deceased hand the list of all the families he destroyed serving Shawn that the cop wanted so badly. This is the very essence of the movie: an evil man filled with guilt trying to show his love for his son; indeed, he gives his very life for all of them. Taken was a live action cartoon utterly devoid of any reality. Here, Jimmy dies at the end; this is not a cartoon. Yes, the final shot is a flaw, you are right, but the theme of the movie is meritorious within this antithetical Zeitgeist.

Harris and Neeson create characters with depth to them full of ambivalence like real human beings. Like Munny, he is seeking redemption; in Jimmy's case it costs him everything. My favorite scene in the movie is the last one where Michael has put Jimmy's picture back up. Like what is done humorously in Uncle Buck, the performance of good is never too late as long as one is still breathing. Like Munny, several times Jimmy stops Michael from killing people,"You pull that trigger you become just like me." The movie is relentlessly intense and well acted with great writing. Try finding another film this deeply moral beneath the action. Any movie that models nobility: giving your life to protect helpless ones will be forgiven, by me, a multitude of flaws. A Good Movie.
