Gotta say with all the not killing going on Liam Neeson was having a pretty good commute. Not gonna lie took a while to get started and was pretty tame compared to his other film. Was kind of like the notebook. With that kissing is the rain scene. Yep.

Very good worth the time.

If you want a little background noise while you do your Sudoku, this is great, if you want an intense movie, try something else. It take far more than a "willing suspension of disbelief" to accept this plot. I think Ant Man was more realistic. It was not a horrible movie, just a disappointment on almost every level.

May be a bit unbelievable at times but a fun thrill ride and decent plot.

Lots of action, but painfully implausible.

This is a typical Liam Neeson movie, which I happen to enjoy. If you like other films of his, like Non-Stop, or the Taken series, you will probably like this too.

Pretty crazy. Typical Liam Neeson fare. An unmitigated action movie. If it's what you like, it's a fun way to spend the better part of two hours.

This movie had a lot of promise and unfortunately didn't deliver. The strangest aspect of this movie is that it states Neeson is close to retirement and in his 60's albeit a former cop he has had a desk job for ten years selling insurance yet he has the energy, strength and stamina to go toe to toe with a host of baddies and do impossible action scenes such as hanging under a train etc. There is suspension of disbelief in all movies, but when the audience is told certain facts then the movie becomes complete fantasy when the rules are distorted to such a degree. In the movie "The Rock" probably Sean Connery's last great action film everyone is mentioning how old he is and how he is physically limited to what he can do so he relies on Nicholas Cage to take most of the punches in the face. In this movie Neeson's character, senior that he is, can get punched, clubbed shot at dragged under a train and brush it off and barely bleed. This impossibility matches the entire film and its final walkaway scene where Neeson can break law after law and get rewarded not brought into account for all the laws he broke on his train trip. Yes a lot of films are like this, but the marketing for this picture tries to sell it as a mystery/thriller not a Dwayne Johnson/Vin Diesel shoot em up which it ends up being.

A great way to enjoy a couple of hours of mid candy! A psychological thriller, as well an action one - sometimes I wondered if the main character (played by Neeson) was dreaming! I enjoyed it as a change from a lot of the stuff I usually watch!

Very bad movie, full of impossibilities. Watched for a while to see where it was going and decided it was going back to the library.

Entertaining, but I found it a struggle to accept the wildly improbable plot line.
