The Commuter (2018)

Liam Neeson is at it again! Playing the working class hero.

This time he's a commuter with a story, stuck on a train which just so happens to hold a witness who a certain someone wants him to find. He doesn't know this at first, but as the train rolls on you wouldn't believe the things he uncovers, and you start to wonder how far this ride will really go.

Apart from some hazy fast-pace special effects (laziness seems to be the trend) this was not bad! The final twist was a predictable one, but it's all presented in such a great way. I love the tension, the weight of the mission, and all in a refreshingly new milieu too.

It's fun to see what American commuter trains look like as well. Though that initial point of interest soon turns to the passengers, and who might be that one mystery witness.

It's a bit like Murder on the Orient Express. Both are great in their own way. Also props on the train-line ending credits! They've got style.

The movie's well-stocked on grit and finesse both. Somber, sometimes beautiful sceneries mix with dead officers hidden under the floorboards, punchline tickets and card games where the stakes are high.

If you like the Liam Neeson type of movies you'll probably like this! Good cast. Good setting. Good watch.

 rated 3/5: not bad
