Bill (Liam Nesson) is an alcoholic Air Marshall who overworks himself to drown out painful memories from the past.  On the flight to London, he receives a text message on his secure network from someone threatening to kill someone on the plane every twenty minutes unless $150 million is paid.   He must find out who is trying to kill people and frame him before it is too late.   NON-STOP is the latest in the action film comfort food genre as Liam Nesson is in top form in action hero mode.  It is one of those great action film rentals great to see once as it might lose its entertainment value on repeat viewings as you know all of the twists and see Julianne Moore make the most out of a role (but she might have just wanted to work with Liam Nesson).   NON-STOP is a better film than TAKEN 2, but it is nowhere near as iconic as TAKEN or THE GREY when it comes to recent Liam Nesson films.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

NON-STOP ACTION- how they created the action sequences in a tight airplane set

 

SUSPENSE AT 40,000 FEET- a promotional featurette as the cast talk about the movie and the working style of the director.   Watch these two featurettes after the movie since they give major spoilers.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  Liam Nesson provides another form of comfort food for action movie fans with NON-STOP, a great thriller to watch once as a good rental.
