A fun movie to watch. Liam Neeson wasn't the cool, calm and collected person he played in all the Taken movies, but he still ended up the hero.
The plot was given in the first ten min. and it should have FF to the last ten. In between was nothing more than loud noises. The (too many) fight scenes were way too long that should have brought any normal 60 yr. old to his knees at first swing. The spoof has been over done and all was expected.
I thought the movie was solid overall. Liam Neeson is not believable at all as a fighter, but hey it's the movies!
This was a surprisingly good movie and I think it had something for everyone. there was plenty of action (stunts, etc.) but also a really good plot.
Typical Liam Neeson movie. The story has been done and there is no special twist. For me the best part was the last minute or so of the movie. No heavy mental analysis is need. Just sit back and watch with some popcorn!
Not as good as Liam's Taken movies but I'll give it 2.5/5 stars because it offers thoughtful ways for good to overcome evil.
Movie was too protracted to hold my interest for long. I resorted to the FF button on several occasions. Liam was no a good choice as the lead due to his age.
Amazing movie. I love love love it! It kept me 'awake'. You will not regret spending 90 minutes watching this well made movie. It reminded me of what movie was when I was going up.
The 2018 film costs $40M to make and reportedly raked in $120M and hardly worth watching for free on a library loan. To desribe it as an action film would be an understated rating. There is no rhyme or reason behind anything here but I doubt the producers ever intended anything to be coordinated outside of the action scenes. Younger, more immature audiences will undoubtedly eat up the 144 minutes of constant melee. Liam Neeson is 66 years old and should be retired and replaced by someone at least 20 years younger.
Liam Neeson was too old for this role. These films with some outside force making people do things is boring and lacks creativity.
Terrible movie, and I like Liam as an actor. Truly a forgettable experience. Ok, here it is.. He is a insurance salesman on a packed train, he gets a phone call that he has to find a traveler with a bag or all the passengers will die... (Yawn......) Totally cringe worthy. Don't take this train ride..
POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT. If Neeson desires to stay on as an action hero, he had better find more believable plots. This is the kind of film that came out every week in the '90's, usually starring Bruce Willis. One scene I enjoyed was toward the end of the film when Neeson had finished decoupling the last train car and had jumped back onto it. If you slow down the film you will see either the scenery going backwards, or Neeson has miraculously appeared at the opposite end of the car he had just landed on and was now going instead of coming. The only other scene I liked was the use of a left-handed Fender Stratocaster as a weapon of opportunity. Neeson puts the guitar's whammy bar to a whole new use, impaling his foe in the neck with it before dispatching him out of the window. I didn't know Neeson played. Anyway, for me, that was the high point of this very tiresome film. Not recommended.
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra in 2018, this action-packed thriller depicts a murder conspiracy after a protagonist meets a mysterious woman on his daily train commute.
Since there are so many red herrings, unbelievable twists and impossible action sequences, you definitely need a willing suspension of disbelief.
For example, in such a violent derailment, all the passengers must have been easily killed at once.
Yet nobody seems to have even a scratch.
In any case, however, I enjoyed this engaging and at-the-edge-of-your-seat entertaining thriller by 75%.
This is the typical Liam Neeson film where he plays the Hero. I really enjoyed it. Supporting cast was very good. A lot of the reviewers claim this is just a formula film, same boring stuff from a guy who's 70, too many plot holes, etc., but, for me, just a fun film.
Please do tell me, am I the only one sick of seeing Neeson play the One Man Hero? The guy is like seventy years old now still playing the smash 'em up bash 'em up swashbuckling hero... And while were on the subject, "Is Tom Cruise EVER going to die?" I mean com'mon Hollywood. Have you Ever thought of.... Oh, I don't know. Acting.
This was not a great film and even seemed like it was a repeat of Liam Neeson's 2014 Non-Stop, but instead of being an Air Marshal on an airplane, he is facing the same kind of black mail on a train, being a laid-off insurance man.
Seemed like a anti-climatic ending.
No extras on this DVD.
I remember when Liam Neeson made good movies. He is a good actor, but this is lousy material. The CGI was especially bad. It is like watching a video game. I hated all the gray, dark tones. The plot has some suspense to it, but overall this is a must NOT see film.
A typical North American over the top movie. Starts out pretty good, but the further you get into the movie, it seems that a fourteen-year-old is directing it like a computer game. Super-humans and nothing true to reality. And the ending is just another computerized special effects show.
Same old stuff.... a nonsensical urgent situation... oh no! ... save the people, find the bomb, before time runs out....what-eva'. By 20 minutes in, I just couldn't care less about who dunnit.
Finally, a new story instead of some rehashed severely recycled themes. Wonderful acting and directing, including good cinematography. There is just enough left to the imagination to create a little intrigue and after-movie discussion.
