SYNOPSIS: During a transatlantic flight, an air marshal must protect the passengers from a potential attack, that he was framed for, while trying to clear his name.


Bits I Loved?

  • Liam Neeson is fantastic in these recent action roles.
  • Very high-intensity action in a confined space.
  • Great premise with good direction that keeps the reveal a mystery until the very end.

Bits I Hated?

  • Julianne Moore does not really do anything. The supporting cast are not used to their full potential.
  • Some plot points seemed too unrealistic and unnecessary with the climax being very anticlimactic.


Is It Good?

Non-Stop is not the typical Liam Neeson action film we have grown accustom to. It is a high-intensity and clever mystery thriller that benefits from its isolated and close-quartered setting. Liam Neeson is fantastic as a federal air marshal fighting against the clock in a film that makes everyone suspicious. However the story is shaky at times and the supporting cast is merely used as objects, a waste of their talent. If the writers did a Clue-esque ending with multiple scenarios shown at different theatres it would have created a very memorable and innovative film that would have had the audience yearning to return and watch the alternate endings. Nonetheless this film is worth a watch for its action, interesting premise, direction and of course Liam Neeson.
