Movie Review: Non-Stop

Donna and I went to see Non-Stop yesterday (Saturday), the action thriller starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore. We had planned to watch the movie when it first appeared here 2 or 3 weeks ago, but never got around to it. It worked out well, though, for yesterday we had the entire theater to ourselves except for one other couple. I guess everyone else saw it the first week or so it was in town.

Neeson plays Bill Marks, a U.S. federal air marshall with numerous personal demons he's dealing with. On a flight from New York to London, he receives a text from an unknown individual that a person will die on the plane every 20 minutes unless $150 million is wired to an account.

The action, like the flight, is non-stop. There are numerous twists in the plot, and I was never able to guess the perpetrator until the end. Fragments from Marks' personal life are revealed as the story develops. It's an entertaining movie, and should hold the interest of most viewers.
