Non-Stop

Murders pile up on a New York–London flight.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra(PG-13)

“Liam Neeson, aka Liam the Great, continues his late, middle-age run as the baddest action hero on the planet,” said Richard Roeper in the Chicago Sun-Times. Summoning a gray-haired gravitas and imposing physicality, the 61-year-old Irish thespian once again has greatly elevated an otherwise subpar thriller. Here, he plays Bill Marks, a federal air marshal with a drinking problem, while Julianne Moore plays a flirty passenger in the next seat. During a flight from New York to London, Marks springs into action after receiving text messages from a mysterious figure promising to kill off passengers one by one if a ransom isn’t met. For more than an hour, “there’s enough going on that you’re willing to overlook the head-banging absurdity of the plotting,” said Ty Burr in The Boston Globe. But the revelation of the villain’s identity and motivation “leaves you scratching your head and searching for the rewind.” Of course, the movie “doesn’t make any sense, but that’s expected, uninteresting, and incidental,” said Manohla Dargis in The New York Times. If you’re looking for diversion, Non-Stop delivers.
