The Commuter Reviews
December 5, 2020
Neeson remains thoroughly engaging, capably bringing the audience into his frantic scenario of heedlessness and abandon.
October 8, 2020
You don't have to be a dad to enjoy the visceral thrills of a Liam Neeson action movie, but it certainly helps if you suffer from the same American middle class insecurities as The Commuter's Michael.

The cliché plot and the predictability of its outcome hurtling at high speed throughout the storyline make The Commuter a surprisingly fun Friday night pleaser.

If anything, it goes to the end of the line, comes to a standstill, and then blows up for what feels like half an hour straight.
July 18, 2020
Whatever interesting ideas it had to begin with is never capitalized on, and thus it ends up being just another generic action picture in a long line of generic action pictures.

There are much better movies that more or less do the same thing, and while it's not a fully satisfying meal, if you're in the mood for the cinematic equivalent of a salty snack full of empty calories, you can do worse than "The Commuter."

A fairly exciting and tension-filled romp through a diverse cast of mostly unknown actors, all of whom get to shine to varying degrees.
March 23, 2020
The Commuter is much less concerned with staging brawls than it is with trying to spin a taut, ticking time bomb thriller, and for the most part it's quite successful.
March 10, 2020
The film is hobbled by sloppy camera work, ludicrous fight scenes, hairbreadth escapes, and altogether too many suspects.

I'm a Liam Neeson fan, but he needs to find better scripts. This one is way too long, overly complicated and unrealistic.

You'll be engrossed for much of the film but in the end, you'll probably walk out thinking, "what was all that build-up for?"

It is not that there are no moments of implausible action, but the truth is that they are much more dosed, and therefore, it is a more complete spectacle. [Full Review in Spanish]

It is a good option for those who want to go to the movies, buy some popcorn and hang out without complications. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 23, 2019
Bumbling but not without a certain entertainment value for its constantly debased and sometimes risible narrative, The Commuter really only goes nowhere fast.
July 21, 2019
The identity of the "surprise" villain was obvious before the script was even written. But Liam Neeson's committed performance provides a strong center to an increasingly outlandish storyline.
July 2, 2019
If you have a specific penchant for Liam Neeson shouting at people and punching them in the face, then The Commuter just might hold enough entertainment value to satisfy.
June 5, 2019
Probably just-about watchable to the right crowd, a totally muddled second half makes this one easily the worst of Liam Neeson and Jaume Collet-Serra's many collaborations.
June 3, 2019
Neeson stands up for the little guy, and no other filmmaker gets that quite like Collet-Serra, who boldly embraces that working man fantasy with a sly wink.
