“Non-Stop” starring Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore and Michelle Dockery premiered in theaters last week with Neeson playing alcoholic United States Air Marshal Bill Marks. The film revolves around an attempt to hijack the plane Marks is on, while simultaneously trying to frame Marks for the hijacking itself.

[Contains some SPOILERS] Midway through a non-stop flight from New York to London, Marks receives text messages on a secure network stating that unless $150,000 is transferred into an account, a passenger would die every twenty minutes. And as promised, after nearly twenty minutes Marks is forced to kill another air marshal on board who pulled a gun on him.

The Transportation Security Administration looks up the name on the account where the money is to be transferred, finding out it is registered to Marks. Another 20 minutes passes and the captain dies.

As the movie progresses, Marks does anything and everything to find the person behind the text messages, to the point where everyone on and off the plane believe he is trying to hijack the plane. In order to find out what really was going on, go check this one out in theaters.

The editors have the texts to Marks pop up on screen, which is a nice touch. “Non-Stop” does a great job keeping the viewer guessing as to who is actually behind the hijacking, and catches the audience off-guard when it is revealed who is involved. The action involved is excellent, and the film is perfectly paced, coming together in under two hours at 106 minutes. Be assured you will be on the edge of your seat for the entirety of this one.

Feather Rating: 9/10
