Liam Neeson is back again in yet another action flick, following Unknown, Taken and its sequel. This time around Neeson plays Bill Marks, an alcoholic Air Marshall who ends up getting more than he asked for during a packed flight when he starts receiving strange text messages from someone threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes unless he receives 150 million. What follows is a cat and mouse game between Neeson and the terrorist while things get more complicated as the other passengers start picking up on what’s happening.
Just like in the absurd Snakes On A Plane, Flightplan and Red Eye, Non-Stop plays out its claustrophobic location nicely and with plenty of plot twists and a convincing Neeson, this one will have you on the edge of your seat. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (with whom Neeson made Unknown), Non-Stop is a rollercoaster ride that despite the rather simple story and a couple of plot holes, will have you biting your nails right up until the end, when you will want to throw whatever you managed to chew off at the screen seeing as it’s a bit of a let-down. Nonetheless, highly entertaining!
