This map shows Liam Neeson's global reign of terror

Liam Neeson's new movie A Walk Among the Tombstones premiered this weekend, with reviews ranging from glowing to brutally harsh. It's an action thriller, in which Neeson — and I hope I'm not spoiling anything — kills some people.

That happens a lot in his movies nowadays. Since his recent turn to action movie stardom, Neeson has racked up a truly astonishing on-screen body count — as this awesomely detailed map shows:

Note that there's some dispute on Reddit about the map's details. (Melitonz)

The standout, naturally, is Taken's 31 kills (with an impressively varied set of tools). I say "naturally" because Taken features what is, without question, the defining Liam Neeson Action Hero speech. Enjoy.
