‘The Commuter’: Murder on the Disorient Express (6/10)

There are a lot of cool editing choices in this film, both in the action sequences and otherwise. Liam Neeson also gives a great performance as usual. The problem is that the movie is wildly unbelievable and almost nothing is explained. It’s a pretty fun watch, but don’t expect much from it. I will say, the styling of the credits is fantastic. #comeonridethetrain #dontletmeleaveMurph #trainedprofessional #endoftheline #thatdoesntstopafoamer


Kelvin Says Hats On:

Recently saw “The Commuter” – Whose Line Is It Anyway. Conclusion: 5/10. Liam Neeson ought to have his own extended universe. Almost every movie he is in nowadays seems to be only a slightly tweaked iteration of the one before it. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that this is stylistically and thematically a copy of one of Neeson’s previous action jaunts “Non-Stop,” which also heralds the same director. Insofar as Neeson’s de facto action franchise goes, this is a perfectly adequate entry. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the first half of this movie is inspired, but it has a bit more style and charisma than one might expect. For me, it’s a shame the movie couldn’t keep itself on a consistent track. It becomes faster and looser as the film progresses and the usual tropes start to play out. It’s entertaining enough – at 105 minutes, it keeps itself moving – but in the end it’s really nothing that hasn’t already been done by Neeson. If you just need one of those passable action thrillers, “The Commuter” can at least deliver that much. #TexasHoldUp #ThirdDerailIssue #PoliceFraud #SetFireToTheTrain #DangersOnATrain
