Non-Stop

Liam Neeson stars in this airline thriller as an air marshal aboard a commercial flight when a nameless assailant covertly presents him with a specific threat: hand over millions of dollars or watch one passenger die every 20 minutes. From the director of Unknown and co-starring Julianne Moore and Michelle Dockery (TV's Downton Abbey).

With the exception of the woman beside him (Moore), Bill (Neeson) must treat every passenger as a suspect. When the clock dwindles down to the first victim, it becomes clear that the threat is no prank. Time becomes more precious by the second, and Bill's control of the situation loosens. And with a flight full of confused and angry travellers on board, the threat of mutiny grows…

Not to be confused as ‘the next Taken’ in any way, Non-Stop could be retitled Agatha Christie’s Snakes on a Plane with its convoluted whodunnit story marinated in chuckle-worthy b-thriller cheese. Alcoholic air marshal Bill (Neeson) is confronted by a mystery texter threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes. Yes, it’s completely implausible, but one look at the poster featuring Liam aiming his gun in a descending plane and you should know the film isn’t going for reality-sharpened thrills.

A solid action thriller, definitely not Taken but a good watch all the same.

Predictable yet unpredictable?

This movie is pretty good! The suspense of never knowing who the killer might be is this films biggest endorsement. It goes between a number of people then comes back to others who were dismissed and really just makes you think. The only flaw was developing Neesons character to a respectable hero. Despite the heart warming backstory and motifs, I was mostly...

Even in the movie’s most ridiculous moments, Collet-Serra keeps the pacing brisk and knows how to divert our attention with a well-timed bit of comic relief.

A nifty lift-off and a tense first hour lead us, disappointingly, to a very bumpy landing. While Neeson and co. do their best, the script just doesn’t deliver where it really matters.

If only the climax lived up to the tense first two-thirds... reaches for some pointed post-9/11 political commentary, total brainlessness would have been a better call.

Non-stop is the flimsiest of black box recorders, by contrast, that never threatens to make even intermittent sense, but it hangs together on the bulky shoulders of its star.

In-flight entertainment comparable to watching the back of the headrest. Just stop.
