Here we go again with Liam Neeson in another action packed movie to cheer for. Overall, it was a good, entertaining film. It did have some cheesy dialogue, but I guess in its way, it expects that. To be sure, it's not a 'great' film, but, it essentially works as a 'who done it?' I couldn't help but think, "Oh, I hope because he's a Federal Air Marshall, it won't preclude the public to think of another TSA embarrassing employee?!" That being said, I hope Liam Neeson will act in some more Academy worthy films in his near future? He's a good actor.

Non-Stop is not your ordinary airline in disaster story. It's not one of those in your face screaming terrorist movies because for most of the film you're trying to figure out who is the terrorist. It's a good mystery trying to figure out who is behind the threats. All the acting is top notch and Liam Neeson again makes a great ordinary man hero and it's nice to see Michelle Dockery taking a brief vacation from Downton Abbey!

I saw this movie on March 1st....I always enjoy Liam Neeson and was looking forward to seeing this film. It was good, not great. A lot of tension, a lot of suspense, a lot of action, and an interesting storyline. If you don't analyze this movie too closely while you're watching it, you'll enjoy it. I tried to ignore some things that left me thinking, "Well, wait a minute, what happened to..." or "I thought they established earlier that..." Since I don't care for movies that rely on computer generated graphics, I'm more than a little picky about that sort of thing. This movie does not rely on them, but there were times graphics were so glaringly bad, it ruined the authenticity of the moment. Aside from that, it's an entertaining enough movie. If you're looking for a real "thinker" film, this one won't fulfill your requirements.

Liam Neeson was the right actor for this movie. I'll be honest I was thinking how can you get the movie goers attention with pretty much the entire movie set is on a plane. Will it did and on the edge of the seat type of action, and trying to guess who the Bad Guy or Girl is. And you will be guessing pretty much all the way through the movie. You will say IT'S GOT TO BE HIM, NO HER ETC ETC. It is slow on take off but that is to be expected. The movie had a good flow leading up to the end. So well written and directed.

In the ever raging war on the U.S. military, Hollywood again is delivering the message that the U.S. military is bad. I don't need to go to movies to be propagandized on Hollywood ideology. The guy with the glasses going to Amsterdam did it.
