Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.
It's a feast for the eyes. But what really makes this dramedy work is the acting.
There are moments that feel comical, some horrific, and some downright inspiring but the tonal shifts hardly matter as the end results come to a film that's perfect for this time.
Doesn't anyone like a credible plot line these days? Total rubbish from beginning to whenever I gave up watching it (I was partly hoping against hope that it would improve and partly enjoying seeing how much more idiotic the script could get). Do not watch this garbage unless you have a fascination to see how low film-making can get.
But that's not such a bad thing, as he lends a much needed aura of credibility to productions that often tend to strain it to the limits.
And while he dominates the film, there are some nice supporting performances.
I do recommend, though, that Liam tries to get away from this Non-Stop theme for his next production - maybe a something with a bit of comedy, which he also handles with aplomb.
The Commuter is an action thriller starring Liam Neeson. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop, The Shallows), it is an absurd but mostly enjoyable action film of the usual Liam Neeson standards.On his usual train commute home, former cop-turned-insurance salesman Michael MacCauley (Liam Neeson) meets and interacts with an unusual woman named Joanna (Vera Farmiga). Joanna tells Michael of a hypothetical situation, which involves him finding one particular passenger on board the train and upon doing so, will result in him pocketing $100,000. Intrigued by this, Michael further investigates the train carriages for clues, only to discover that this situation is not hypothetical and has resulted in placing him and his family in great danger.As farfetched as it is entertaining, The Commuter is a fun popcorn film with enough suspense and action to hold one's attention for the duration of its runtime. Liam Neeson is his usual action-star self, essentially playing the same character we have seen many times before, so one would know what to expect. The film is in the same vein as other Liam Neeson-helmed action thrillers, like Taken and Non-Stop, the latter of which was by the same director, and this does nothing to detract from the formula, but if it ain't broke. Don't expect too much and enjoy the film for the satisfying time passer it was made to be.I rate it 6/10
Terrible fight scenes and grandpa Neeson wasn't the worst...Patrick Wilson is a horrible actor!
