The Commuter (2018)
Critic Consensus: The Commuter's cast is better than its workmanlike script - which helps make this reasonably diverting Liam Neeson action thriller worth the price of a matinee ticket or rental, if not a full-price ticket.

Critic Reviews for The Commuter
All of the elements are there for stylish and suspenseful flick, but the suspense seems to have been forgotten.
The good cheer with which Collet-Serra defines the supporting players ameliorates The Commuter's nightmarish premise and draws viewers deeper into its spell.
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 yourself. At least until the final act, when the film goes off the rails. Like a train might do.
The train is the most realistic performer here, but you could do a lot worse.
Audience Reviews for The Commuter
I can't believe a film like this was green lit. Hollywood is super inconsistent with the films they choose to produce these days. Liam Neeson is a tremendous talent but is relegated to cliché mess. THis is not a Hitchcock thriller and using that name is like spitting in the face of legacy filmmakers. I want mid range thrillers to make a comeback but sadly this film shows why these films have faded from the cinemas. Not a good film and it grows severely implausible as the time runs along. That finale twist was so predictable and not worth the price to pay for this film, if you gave this high marks, you really should stay away from reviewing films. 19/06/2018.
Neeson throwing himself about the train-setting is engaging enough to hold your attention for about an hour. Unfortunately, The Commuter is an hour and fortyfive minutes long.
Collet-Serra is back with another run-of-the-mill Liam Neeson action movie (the fourth), but this time there is very little to entertain here besides his usual show-off gimmicks, being basically a sillier and less creative version of Non-Stop but on a train instead of an airplane.
