61 year old Liam Neeson kicks ass as a brooding U.S. air marshal on a flight from NYC to London, who gets anonymous in-flight texts, threatening to kill someone on board every 20 minutes unless 150-mil is wired into an off-shore account.
Julianne Moore is the mysterious seat mate with “Downton Abbey’s” Michelle Dockery and “12 Year’s A Slave” Oscar nominee Lupita Nyong’o as flight attendants. “Red Tails”’ “”Arbitrage” star Nate Parker This is a taut, who-done-it on speed. It lives up to its title: non-stop from the minute we get into the air and mysterious throughout.
This just under 2 hour thriller flies by (excuse the pun). Thankfully 3-D-less, this is a near perfect , albeit implausible terror ride. You definitely get the bang for the buck.
