* Do you like movies about airplanes in jeopardy?
* Do you like edge-of-the-seat thrillers?
* Do you like to see smart people try to outsmart smart people?
* Do you like Liam Neeson? (He has become America's most unlikely action hero. Stallone and Schwarzenegger should take notes: NO plastic surgery and no phony white teeth!)

If you answered "Yes" to any or all of the above, have I got a film for YOU!

This time Neeson is a U.S. Air Marshall who, after an airliner is over the Atlantic, receives a text message on a secured network advising him that one passenger will die every 20 minutes until $150M is transferred to an off-shore account. And that is just the beginning of this twisty white-knuckle ride!

We watch:
* Liam Neeson ("Taken 1 & 2") is our hero, a bit the worse for the wear, but a smart, resourceful agent, who can only watch as he is brilliantly framed. We in the audience were as frustrated as he!
* Julianne Moore ("Don Jon") is the agitated gal who negotiates for the seat next to our hero.
* Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey") is the chief flight attendant: wary, watchful and determined to protect her passengers.

There are so many suspects, we were as muddled and terrified as our hero, but I have never before been in an audience where a MAN screamed. I was glad he did so I didn't have to!

This amazing PG-13 script was written by John W. Richardson and Christopher Roach; it has very little profanity, an intense plot plus some fisticuffs and gunfire. Director Jaume Collet-Serra ("Unknown") held our attention from the first frame. Most of the story takes place on the airliner, so he had to be creative to keep us focused.

As someone who only has flown small aircraft, I am no more than a lay person, so if there are plot holes in this cleverly crafted script, I didn't spot them. The screening audience applauded and the buzz was noticeable as we exited the theater. Do not miss this thrilling movie!

I love knowing there are such diverse reactions to the same movie. It really IS different strokes for different folks. Amazon will notify me when the DVD is available so I can tell my JayFlix.net people.

I just saw this in the theater and really loved it. Most of you have already seen the promo, so you know Neeson plays a US Federal Air Marshall, who is on a plane, up in the air (40,000 feet or so), when he begins to get texts on his secured line, telling him a person will be killed every 20 minutes until the hijacker gets big bucks randsom money. You also probably saw on the promo, that Neeson is set up to look like he is the hijacker.

Neeson plays Marshall Will Marks, a man with some issues of his own. He also drinks a little, just so you know he is human and his life is not hearts and flowers. Marks is a man with a strong work ethic and will do whatever he needs to --to protect the lives of his passengers when the $xxx begins to hit the fan. Julianne Moore adds to the cast as a passenger, sitting next to Neeson on the plane.

The flick holds your interest as you are right there with Neeson and the passengers, trying figure out WHO is doing all this, and HOW! It's a strong film with a powerful ending. I plan to buy the video for my collection when it becomes available.

Non-Stop is more of a Hitchock thriller on a plane that a full out action flick. It still had it's moments of male enduced testosterone to keep us Taken fans satisfied. The film rolls along nicely and holds your attention with twists and turns as Liam tries to pin-point the highjacker during flight. Yes, some far-fetched bits and a snappy finish, but Liam is such a grounded actor you don't dwell on it. Great direction also, this could've turned into a shaky-cam, fast paced mess but the movie has patience and pulls you in, not rushing anything.

I normally do not buy movies because i rarely watch them more than once. However, this movie could not be rented, only purchased. It looked really good and i really wanted to watch it, so i went ahead and bought it, hoping i would not regret it. I am pleased to say not only do i not regret it...i LOVE this movie. I have already watched it three times in two days. I can easily watch it several more times and still enjoy it. It was wonderfully written so there are no "yeh right" moments, if you know what i mean. If you like great acting with great action, then the money is well spent on this movie.

Usually movies that take place on a plane are typically quite straight forward and "static" I guess you could say, but Liam Neeson plays a great dynamic character that will do whatever it takes to get the job done. The best part of the movie is that it is unique in the sense that you do not know who the bad guy is until the very end of the movie and it will make you question what you already know about the charters. I highly recommend this movie!

If you Love Liam Nesson like I do then this is the perfect movie for you! Its a mystery suspense action film that has you guessing from start to finish. Just when you think you have figured everything out the movie switches things up and has you second guessing your own decisions lol

This is a classic who done it movie. I love how movie stars you have seen in other movies pop up as just casual characters and it ends up being a star studded cast.

I loved this movie from start to finish and if you love Liam Nesson and a little mystery then you will like this movie.

All the way through the movie it will hold you in suspense and on edge. You will be saying, "It's this guy...no...it's the woman...no...it's a crew of them!" - All I can say is watch it and enjoy a great movie. Five stars from me for sure.

loved the movie all the way to the end. The base plot, revealed at the end, is so stupid that it exceeds the tolerence of belief. An ex iraq vet who's dad died in the word trade center that wants to prove america really isn't safe hijacks a plane???? What moron came up with that? I think I'll write a movie where the US president hijacks a plane just to prove the TSA is ineffective on Sundays.... hollywood had to ruin a fun movie with a stupid plot reveal. How about something believeable next time, like russian seperatist or Thailand based islamic militants or african congo military. How about former IRA sempathizer's or Iraq sunni sempathizers.... seriously, whoever came up with this plot needs a reality check, and the producer that allowed it to be turned into a blockbuster film needs fired.

Jaume Collet-Serra directs a story and screenplay by John W. Richardson, Chris Roach and Ryan Engle and makes the audience cringe at the concept of long airplane flights. The pace of the story is harrowing and even if at the ending we are left with the feeling `I should have figured this out', the action and the acting is first rate and the film proves to be a fine summer evening diversion.

Bill Marks (Liam Neeson), a former cop now an Air Marshall dealing with his daughter's death by drinking, even as he prepares to board a flight that needs his expertise as a law enforcer. Suspicious things begin to happen when there is an argument over a window seat Zack (Nate Parker) and the inquisitive Jen Summers (Julianne Moore), an encounter with a frightened child (Quinn McColgan), a co-dependent relationship between Marks and a stewardess (Michelle Dockery), etc. While on the flight from New York to London, Marks gets a text telling him that unless 150 million dollars is transferred to an offshore account, someone will die every 20 minutes. Everyone becomes a suspect, Marks is called a terrorist, people begin dying in a string of strange occurrences, and ultimately, with craft and cunning and employing the aid of the passengers, Marks finds the truth in the situation.

Supporting actors who offer fine support include Scoot McNairy, Linus Roache, Anson Mount, Corey Stoll, Omar Metwally among others. Fast action, edge of the seat suspense, and fine timing make this a film worthy of viewing (if it doesn't terrify you about booking long flights!). Grady Harp, June 14
