Non-Stop Movie Review 331

Non-Stop is a 2014 action movie directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore.

This movie revolves around a federal air marshal called Bill Marks(Neeson) who has had some personal problems in his life recently. He is on a flight when he meets a woman called Jen(Moore). They chat and everything seems fine until he gets a message on his phone telling him that one person will die every 20 minutes unless $150 million  is transferred into a bank account. Bill wonders who it is. He looks around at all the passengers and wonders. There are many suspicious looking people on board and he begins to wonder. Then, he realises that he is being set up by the anonymous person as the bank account number is actually his and it looks as if he is the one who is hijacking the plane and looking for the money. He gets himself into trouble as he tries to find out the truth.

People begin to die and he realises that he has to stop this. The passengers become afraid of him as they think that he is the threat to them. He finds a bomb on board and time is running out. He asks Jen and some of the crew on board to help him to find out who is doing this to him. Eventually he figures it out and the culprit was one of the passengers all along. He has an accomplice too and they try and get away after explaining their reason for doing it. The culprit gives some little speech about 9/11 and then says he wants the bomb to go off and kill him and everyone on board to get his voice heard. The bomb does explode but the plane manages to land and the passengers get off. The baddies die in the blast and Bill is cleared of any wrongdoing. 

This film is entertaining. The plot is okay and you get action all the way through. I liked it even though some of the plot was a little ridiculous, but hey, it was good fun to watch and I liked Liam Neeson in it. He is very good as the action star and he really plays it well. He carries the entire movie and makes it very watchable. This was fun and I enjoyed it so if you like movies where you don't have to think too much, then this is for you. I'm giving it a 7/10.

I went in expecting to hate this movie but really ended up enjoying it. Sure, it gets ridiculous at times, but I was never less than enthralled.

I had some time to myself and bought a ticket to this one just because there was nothing else at the theater I wanted to see more. I am glad I did.

Some of it was ridiculous, that is correct, but you guys are also correct that it was a lot of fun. Nothing mind boggling, just typical Liam Neeson fun.
