Film ● Mini-Review: Non-Stop

Title: Non-Stop

Director(s): Jaume Collet-Serra

Screenwriter(s): John W. Richardson, Christopher Roach & Ryan Engle

Released: 2014

Runtime: 1h 46m


● It’s not quite Taken the Whole Plane but I include it here because it stars Liam Neeson who plays US Air Marshal. On a transatlantic flight, he receives a text on his phone. As he tries to deal with it, he is, not surprisingly, framed as the bad guy. In this way, he is forced to operate alone against everyone else.

● Despite being set in a relatively small space, it nonetheless holds one’s attention. It’s shot and edited well, especially if one considers the logistics of shooting in a confined and crowded area in such a way that it still looks and feels confined and crowded.

● The ending is somewhat convenient; it’s not totally implausible given the premise but is cheesy in its execution. This is partly because the film starts strongly enough and it is difficult to maintain that tension throughout. It’s a better film than the trailer suggests but don’t expect it to be great.

This mini-review is part of the collection for Taken clones and derivatives.
