The Commuter Reviews

August 19, 2020
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.

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?"
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 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 6, 2019
Liam Neeson takes too many familiar turns.
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.

Liam Neeson plays the same character he's played in the last 10 years (with some exceptions) and barely makes it to the absurd ending. [Full review in Spanish].

There could've been something different and special here that's tossed away in favor of a by-the-book, easy to follow story for the average cineplex audience.

Although The Commuter is not what one would label an absolute train wreck, Neeson's ragged everyman out to draw blood in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game is nothing other than the repetitive shtick that Neeson has been doing so well since Taken...

What you see is what you get with The Commuter, the latest in wash-rinse-repeat Liam Neeson in a vehicle action-thrillers.
October 30, 2018
A contrived story that only gets more ridiculous with each stop along the way.
August 29, 2018
How many times do we have to see this movie? We get it, Neeson is not a man to be messed with.
August 28, 2018
The whole big thing is, 'Here's the setup, here's the rules.' And then literally 20, 25 minutes in, the film goes, 'I can't be bothered with that.'
August 25, 2018
Hey, you guys made an action thriller with Liam Neeson on a train and a plane. Just give us the bus movie, and we can keep moving in our lives.
August 14, 2018
What we're left with is one of the most implausible and uninteresting action movies of 2018.

Just like Roger Murtaugh in Lethal Weapon, you do get the impression of Liam thinking he's "too old for this s---".
