After sleeping on it, I think I finally figured out my opinion of The Marksman. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t trash.
Liam Neeson was exactly what you’d expect. He sees a wrong and he will fix it with his certain set of skills. Always. I just looked him up and discovered that he is 68 years old. He’s getting on up there in years but you’d never know due to his impressive style of fighting.
Jacob Perez plays little Miguel. I’m not familiar with him but he has a certain something in his eyes that makes you enjoy watching him. He seems far older than his years.
The plot is a new wave of movies addressing our current state of affairs. I’ve seen a couple of movies lately that are hitting hard on certain issues and I see what they’re doing. This is Hollywood’s way of getting you to look at situations from a different perspective. I can say it worked. This flick drew my eyes to a different thought process.
I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to address my feelings regarding the political issues in the review. That being said, I’d love to read your thoughts in the comments below and will do my best to respond.
This isn’t a feel good movie to let you escape reality and be entertained for two hours. This is more of a book circle movie. It’s one to watch and then discuss the politics behind it with your friends and loved ones.
About The Peetimes: There are 2 fairly long Peetimes during this movie. Hopefully those will get you through.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Marksman. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
