Alcoholic, depressed, and caught in a self imposed tailspin, air marshal Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) is a target for airline terrorist/hijackers. While crossing the Atlantic Bill is called to action as a series of mysterious text messages indicates certain death to passengers aboard his flight; that is unless Bill is able to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Relying on his own pure resourcefulness, and the good nature of one passenger (Julianne Moore) and a flight attendant (Michelle Dockery), Bill might just be able to stop a major catastrophe, then again, hey may already be too late. nonstop This is a bit of a curiosity, while the story itself isn’t exactly the sharpest and the overall dialogue has the tendency to induce eye rolls, the acting strength of Neeson and Moore alone is just enough to pull up on the yoke and keep this popcorn chomper from turning into a total nosedive. Meanwhile, hopes of a mind bending psychological thriller hang in the air like a fog (thinking Fight Club here), sadly as we near the final act these hopes dissipate as cheap thrills are what keep this no brainer aloft. Bottom line, great cinema, no, entertaining for what it is, yes; just don’t think too hard on the plot and be prepared to fist pump U-S-A! U-S-A! Non-Stop is rated PG-13.
