Blacklight trailer: Liam Neeson gets pulled into yet another government conspiracy

If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s Liam Neeson kicking some asses nearly every year. Briarcliff Entertainment have released the first trailer for Blacklight, a new action-thriller that stars Liam Neeson as a freelance “fixer” who finds himself thrust into the middle of a government conspiracy.

Liam Neeson plays Travis Block in the Blacklight trailer, a troubled, off-the-books fixer for the FBI who is tasked with pulling undercover agents out of dangerous situations. He finds himself in the middle of a deadly conspiracy when one such agent questions the very people he is working for. Despite Liam Neeson saying again and again that he would be retiring from action movies, he still has a few more on his slate. He’s previously said that he likely only has a couple of more in the pipeline before he has to call it quits unless he’s “on a Zimmer frame or something.” When that fateful day does come, Neeson said that he’ll miss the thrill of doing action movies. “I love doing them,” Neeson said. “I love beating up guys half my age.“

The official synopsis for Blacklight:

Trust, identity, and the danger of unchecked power push a covert operative to the edge in director Mark Williams’ intense action thriller Blacklight. Travis Block (Neeson) lives and fights in the shadows. A freelance government “fixer,” Block is a dangerous man whose assignments have included extracting agents out of deep-cover situations. When Block discovers a shadowy program called Operation Unity is striking down ordinary citizens for reasons known only to Block’s boss, FBI chief Robinson (Quinn), he enlists the help of a journalist (Raver-Lampman), but his past and present collide when his daughter and granddaughter are threatened. Now Block needs to rescue the people he loves and expose the truth for a shot at redemption. Nothing and no one is safe when secrets are hidden in Blacklight.

Blacklight will hit theaters on February 11, 2022.
