After TakenLiam Neeson became an actor associated with "a particular set of skills," and his latest movie, Memory, opening April 29 is no exception.

"We all have to die. What's important is what you do before you go," Neeson says in the trailer for Memory, which you can watch below.

Memory centers on Neeson's character, Alex Lewis, who is an expert assassin who also happens to have a reputation for being discreet and precise. However, he gets caught up in a moral quagmire that sees him refuse to complete a job because there is a child involved and he draws the line at hurting kids. This leads him to try to hunt down and kill those who hired him before they find him first. Oh yeah, the FBI is also chasing him because his actions are interfering with an international investigation, and his memory is beginning to falter, as well.

So, the questions may be, if he can't trust his own memory, is there any action he commits that won't come into question; does he have any allies he can really trust; and does he really know what is right and what is wrong, morally?

"I'm the bad man, I have been for a long time," he says. "I want justice."

Directed by Martin Campbell from a screenplay by Dario ScardapaneMemory also stars Guy Pearce, Monica Bellucci, Taj Atwal, Ray Fearon, and Harold Torres. It is produced by Cathay Schulman, Moshe Diamant, Rupert Maconick, Michael Heimler, and Arthur Sarkissian. It hails from Open Road Films.
