If Liam Neeson ever retires, Gerard Butler will be there to take his place as the best actor to regularly appear in violent and somewhat formulaic thrillers about men doing what they have to do to save the members of their family from being abducted and sold to the highest bidder.
Here’s the trailer for Last Seen Alive, which is due to be released next month. In this one, Butler plays a man whose wife vanishes at a gas station. It was originally titled Chase, which was a bit of a generic title. I prefer Last Seen Alive. Butler not only stars but he also produced.
