Obviously this is a film that plays on the mystery/who dunnit end game so I canít disclose much in the way of plot details without spoiling your fun, and I donít want to do that. What I will say is that I give this flick props for keeping us guessing, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE style. Itís definitely not something youíll put together in the first ten minutes of the movie, thatís for sure. I did feel the whole texting thing took the fear out of the situation. Sure, the twenty minute time clock for someone to die was intense, but seeing the hero and villain duke it out over texts is little too lame for me.
NON-STOP felt like a watered down version of TAKEN, on a plane without snakes (or Samuel L. Jackson) held together but a weak plot, weak villain and even weaker endgame. Talk about taking a huge dump on the scriptís final act. Itís not like it was rocket science leading up to that point, but where it goes is so damn unsatisfying that I almost lack the words to describe it. I love Liam Neeson, I do, and Iím game for him fighting wolves, taking down sex traffic rings, playing a talking Lion, or even being a general in a movie based on a board game, but this felt a little too paint by numbers for me and I just canít in good conscience recommend you pay money to see it.
Suspense at 40,000 Feet: Here the cast and crew touch on the one thing I enjoyed; the fact that they did a great job of keeping us guessing. Too bad they dropped the ball in the third act.
Previews: There are a handful of trailers that play before the feature as well as a DVD and Ultraviolet Digital Copy of the film.
