Movie Breakdown: Non-Stop

February 27, 2014


People are doing traditional-style reviews all over the web, so we decided to try something different.  In each “breakdown” we’ll take a look at what a film’s marketing lead us to believe, how the movie actually played, and then what we learned from it all.  Read on!

The Impression:

Liam Neeson does his usual thing where he shoots and punches people, BUT THIS TIME HE DOES IT ON AN AIRPLANE. OVER THE OCEAN. AS AN AIR MARSHALL.

The Reality:

Non-Stop is one of those films that’s fairly solid as long as you just out-right refuse to turn your brain on.  Liam Neeson, as always, is entertaining to watch, and there’s enough suspense throughout the movie to keep you checked-in to what’s happening on the screen.

With all of that being said, it’s hard for me to tell you to actually see Non-Stop.  It’s not anywhere near as good as Taken or The Grey but it’s also not as bad as Taken 2 or Unknown.  The film just sort of exists, and while it could definitely be worse, it feels like a waste of Neeson.  He deserves better.

The Lesson:

Quality control is important, Mr. Neeson.
