#18 NONSTOP

#18 NONSTOP
Starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore.  Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. 110 minutes long.

This film is ridiculously entertaining in a way I really wasn't expecting! I got sucked up by it and it kept me hooked and gripped almost up to the end. A really silly experience but one that was thoroughly enjoyable!

Liam Neeson continues his big action man phase with another highly believable action hero, who because we live in the 21st century has to to be damaged in someway, this time round he's an alcoholic, grief-ridden dad. Roll on Nonstop 2 is all I can say, well that and Taken 3 of course.

The story in a nutshell. Neeson is Bill Marks, a sky marshal traveling on a trans-Alantic flight when it's effectively hi-jacked by an unknown third party and Marks is framed for it. The film follows the flight as Neeson races against the clock, over and over again to save the lives of everyone on board and clear his name!

Despite the fact you can spot who's the baddy is as soon as they've introduced themselves, this is a tense, claustrophobic and highly engrossing action film.

8/10
