"A Walk Among the Tombstones" movie quotes follow the clues when a former cop opens an investigation into a string of kidnappings and murders. The crime drama was directed by and adapted into a screenplay by Scott Frank from a novel of the same name by Lawrence Block. "A Walk Among the Tombstones" opened in the United States on September 19, 2014.

In "A Walk Among the Tombstones," former NYPD officer and current unlicensed private detective Matthew Scudder (Liam Neeson) is contacted by Kenny Kristo (Dan Stevens), a heroin dealer about an investigation Kenny needs. As Kenny explains, his wife was kidnapped and despite paying the requested ransom, those behind the crime still murdered the wife.

Matthew takes on the case and soon learns that this was no random occurrence. Those responsible for the crimes selected Kenny's wife after studying and following her and planning every little detail. Not only that, but they most assuredly have committed the same crime before and will definitely do it again, putting Matthew in a tense game of cat and mouse with the suspects.

"A Walk Among the Tombstones" hits theaters already full with other great films including "This is Where I Leave You," "The Maze Runner," "Dolphin Tale 2," "No Good Deed," "The Skeleton Twins," "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby," "The Drop," "The Identical," "Frontera," "The Longest Week," "The November Man," "The Congress," "Life of Crime," "Starred Up," "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," "If I Stay," "When the Game Stands Tall," "Are You Here," "The Expendables 3," "Let's Be Cops."
