Non-Stop: A Game Of Chess To Decide The Fate Of Innocent Lives
Non-Stop is an action-thriller movie featuring Bill Marks, (Liam Neeson) a tense, alcoholic undercover air marshal, who is assigned to be on a transatlantic flight from New York to London. Neeson sits apprehensively at take off when he receives a threatening text message saying, “A passenger is going to die every 20 minutes until $150 million is wired into a bank account. Through a flurry of twists and turns, Neeson tries to identify which passenger is sending him the menacing text messages. All the while the audience is working alongside Neeson trying to identify the criminal. He tries to piece together the clues as the body count begins to rise. What makes it all the more intense is the fact that any of the 150 passengers and crew on board could be the evil mastermind responsible for the deaths onboard.
Given its constricted setting the movie does a good job of using the airplane to build suspense and drama. You may never think it would be possible for two men to brawl in an airplane bathroom but Non-Stop proves that it indeed can be done. If you are looking for a good action-thriller movie Non-Stop is a solid choice. Is it as good as some of Liam Neeson’s previous work? No, but I would still give Non-Stop a chance. After all, at a seasoned 61 years old who knows how many more action-thriller movies Neeson will sign onto? All in all Non-Stop is a suspenseful and thrilling movie that will have you continuously pointing your finger from one passenger to the next trying to figure out who the culprit is until the final scenes.
