Liam Neeson has spent this portion of his career kicking ass, taking names, spitting out one-liners and being an all around badass, and now there's a map to show you where he's (fictitiously) killed people (and sometimes battle droids and wolves).

Liam Neeson is frequently questing for vengeance. Sometimes, he's a scientist who gets transformed into a superhuman. Sometimes, he's just a father trying to get his daughter back. Other times, he's stuck on a plane and forced to play a game with a terrorist. Throughout it all, he's kicking the crap out of people who get in his way. Nerdist has released a map, showing the locations and methods of all his antihero kills.

The map comes in the wake of his latest film, A Walk Among the Tombstones, where once again, he's a secret badass (ex-cop turned unlicensed private detective) trying to outsmart and out-pulverize a group of villains who kidnap and murder people.

Now, because Neeson is a prolific ass-kicker, he's killed people all around the world, as well as in a galaxy far, far away (Star Wars: Episode IThe Chronicles of Narnia). In the latter, he is actually a lion that's supposed to be a metaphor for Jesus. He's also been Zeus (Wrath of the Titans), so he kills people across religions as well.

Liam Neeson's most prolific spree came in the 2008 film Taken, where he knocked out 31 baddies in Paris. Another 20 he managed to take down in Taken 2, so that's 51 in one film franchise alone. His total thus far is 115, with the last four rolling in during A Walk Among the Tombstones.
