The Commuter

Liam Neeson has become the go-to guy for action movies debuting in January. His latest entry is “The Commuter” where he plays an allegedly mild mannered insurance salesman who has an epically bad day. As bad as that day is, his commute home is ten times worse. He is drawn into a plot that he has no control over, a sort of sick game of cat and mouse. It is not your typical terror on a train movie. Instead it is one of the most suspenseful movies I have seen in a long time. There are just enough action sequences to keep your interest. They might have subtitled it “Taken on a Train”, but it’s more than that. The plot is tight, clever and keeps you guessing until the end. If you like suspense, action and Liam Neeson being a bad ass, go see this movie.
