REVIEW:

Nerida:

The story puts Liam Neeson through his violent paces for a fourth time, swapping out Non-Stop’s plane for a commuter train and tossing in some financial anxiety for motivation. It’s funny in a way, but packed with a lot of adrenaline and action scenes. The mystery is less a whodunit than a whogotit, the “it” being a bag containing something stolen that the owner is desperate to recover. If you don’t think too hard about why Neeson gets brought in or how the baddies operate or what the point is, you may be able to enjoy it. At least until the final act, when the film goes off the rails.  Liam Neeson is good at what he does best as an aging action star. Vera Farmiga did well as the main villain with a mastermind plan that is setting everything in motion. Patrick Wilson was also decent as Neeson’s friend and an officer. What I did not like about the film is the conspiracy plot seems familiar. A little too familiar like Liam Neeson’s previous films. Overall the plot’s unlikelihood is really excessive but acting is pretty good, as usual when Neeson is involved.
