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!
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.
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.
Quality control is important, Mr. Neeson.
