4.0 out of 5 stars Better than an in-flight movie, 2 July 2014
By 
This review is from: Non-Stop [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Aboard a seemingly routine International flight from New York to London, solemn , alcoholic Air Marshall Bill Marks (Neeson) recieves a disturbing message on his phone mid flight. If 150 million dollars isn't deposited into their account, one person will die every 20 minutes. Can Marks save the day, or is he more involved than first thought ?

Non Stop certainly lives up to it's name, but perhaps not quite for the reasons you'd first suspect. As instead of an all out action movie at 40,000 feet, it is in fact fueled by a more reserved, intriguing mystery thriller that plays out in the confines of a Boeing 767. It is book ended with some slick close quarters Taken-esque scenes to add some excitement, albeit the quality of the finale was a little disappointing visually. Things tick along at a nice pace, as Marks desperately tries to weed out a terrorist from the suspicious contingent of the 150 passengers & crew, that turns up some added twist's to the tale. Inevitably things gradually escalate & as he becomes more erratic, paranoia spreads through the plane & everyone is a suspect right up to the end. The convenience of the bodies dropping exactly on the 20 minute marks given the seemingly random nature after the initial victim, does require some suspension of disbelief.

The ominous music is a great compliment to the suspense & tension throughout. Liam Neeson (Taken) is as watchable as ever, ably supported by Julianne Moore (Crazy, Stupid, Love) & a small cast of less well known faces as a representation of the 150 passengers & crew, who are believable.

In conclusion, Non Stop is a very enjoyable mystery thriller that's well presented along with some nice twists, if somewhat implausible at times. More pedestrian than Taken, but if you liked Flightplan or indeed Neeson & Director Jaume Collet-Serra's work in Unknown this pace/style of film will suit well. Contains mild language (1 F-Bomb noted) & violence. Recommended.
