Bill Marks (Liam Neeson; Unknown, Taken) is a burned-out veteran of the Air Marshals service. He views the assignment not as a life-saving duty, but as a desk job in the sky. However, today's flight will be no routine trip. Shortly into the transatlantic journey from New York to London, he receives a series of mysterious text messages ordering him to have the government transfer $150 million into a secret account or a passenger will die every 20 minutes.

Format: Blu-ray
This is a first rate, pacy, suspenseful and entertaining thriller.
Liam Neeson plays Bill Marks, a fifty-something Federal Air Marshall with a drink problem, who's on an overnight transatlantic flight from the United States to London. Julianne Moore plays a similarly aged passenger, Jen, who sits beside Bill in the early part of the movie.
Bill starts receiving anonymous text messages from a fellow passenger, threatening to kill one passenger every twenty minutes, unless 150 million dollars are wired to a nominated account. What follows then is a very gripping and exciting hunt for the villains...
Liam does his usual, highly efficient star turn as a gimlet-eyed, granite-jawed hard man, basically a modern take on Dirty Harry. He's a guy who's fearless, resourceful, methodical and relentless. He has to use both brains and brawn to save the day.
The film is well-scripted and skilfully keeps you guessing about the identity of the bad guy or guys for most of the run-time. The setting on an aircraft lends the movie a tense, claustrophobic feel, which is adroitly handled by the director. The action scenes are executed with flair, especially a bruising fight sequence in a toilet cubicle. As the chief protagonists exchange text messages throughout the flight, the messages scroll across screen, which is a nice directorial flourish. A lot of the passengers are nervy, suspicious looking characters, which is a good ruse to help keep the viewer guessing - it works a treat.
Julianne Moore's role is a relatively minor but pivotal one, which, given her consistent excellence as an actress, seemed a small pity. However, that's only a very minor grumble.

"Non-Stop" stars Liam Neeson as grizzled Air Marshall Bill Marks, who finds himself in a desperate race against time when an unknown hijacker threatens to start killing passengers on a transatlantic flight unless a huge ransom is paid.
Neeson seems to be cornering the market recently in this kind of action role, and darn good at it he is too, it has to be said.
This is a wildly improbable but hugely entertaining white knuckler; suspend your disbelief for a couple of hours, disregard some plot holes, and relish a top drawer thriller which will keep you glued to the screen.

By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 11 Mar. 2014
Format: DVD
Bill (Liam Neeson) is an Air Marshall who likes his drink too much. While on a flight he gets a terrorist threat over his secure phone line. A passenger will die every 20 minutes unless $150 million is transferred into a specific account. Thus begins a great game of cat and mouse that was excellently written and performed. The problem I had was when the culprit was revealed the motive was so unbelievably lame. Seriously? That was the best thing 5 guys could come up with?

A thriller worth watching once they get an alternative ending.

Parental Guide: 1 F Bomb near end by co-pilot. No sex or nudity. Implied sex as couple giggles under blanket.

This started with a degree of promise, and maintained some interest, but in the last third became increasingly predictable, with the latter scenes almost unwatchable in their standardised surreal Hollywood up the action ante...
Overall left a feeling of vacuous repetitive tripe. Not me trying to be clever, just a warning, but if you want an easy to engage action movie, go for it!

Format: Blu-ray
Liam Nesson stars as a troubled marshal federal agent Bill Marks. He is boarding a terrifying flight from New York to London. He receives nasty text messages. The messages alert passangers will be killed every twenty minuites unless substantial amount of money received. Everybody is a culprit on the plane. What are the motives behind these attacks? How does Bill save the day as there are reports about his past being broadcasted on tv? The film is filled with plenty edge of the seat moments. The film keeps you enthralled until the end. The pace is so fast. Bill's character is intriguing, as he is not mentally stable. The film is reminiscent of 90s hijacking films Passanger 57 and Air Force One. The film is updated with the 21st technology. It is a well crafted thriller film, filled with plenty of twists and turns. I enjoyed the film. If you are into high octance thrillers, I would recommend Non Stop.

Brilliant and would recommend, If you like films such as Crimson Tide and The Hunt for Red October, then this is a must see. Full of suspense, keeps you wondering and guessing right to the end and is definitely an on the edge of your seat ride. If you're a Neeson fan then a must see, but even if you're not, I'd still recommend it.

Okay, I, like many, enjoyed Liam Neeson’s film ‘Taken.’ And, like many, I thought the sequel was a little bit of a let-down/cash-in. Therefore, my hopes weren’t that high for ‘Non Stop’ – a film where, from all trailers and promotional material, Neeson basically plays the same aging tough guy, albeit now he’s an air marshal trying to stop a terrorist highjacking/blackmail plot.

Perhaps that’s the secret to enjoying this film, i.e. don’t expect too much, because, as it turned out, I was pleasantly surprised (and very entertained). Yes, Neeson’s character isn’t that different to how he acted in Taken, however, the story is executed in a different enough way to make it not feel like a cheap rip-off of the Taken franchise.

It’s sort of a ‘whodunnit’ on a plane. One of the passengers is texting Neeson, threatening to kill a passenger every so often unless his (monetary) demands are met. This means that there are plenty of ‘red herrings’ to constantly throw the audience off the scent.

Naturally, with any sort of film like this, there are some moments where you have to suspend your disbelief and accept that – sometimes – things just happen to move the plot forward in the right direction.

So, don’t think too hard about the (few) minor plot holes, just enjoy the pretty tense ride as Neeson proves that, once again, you don’t have to be ‘expendable’ to be an older statesman of the action genre.
