    Luckily, Non-Stop has a way-above-average cast for this kind of nonsense. show more

    Thanks to him (Neeson), I not only enjoyed Non-Stop, but I'd watch it again. Particularly on a plane. show more

    While it takes stabs at realism, mostly in its use of cellular and computer technology, disbelief must be suspended for full immersion in this twisty airborne thriller. show more

    Much of the fun is awfully silly. The story strains logic, as well as credulity. It's been cobbled together, often crudely, from pieces of classic predecessors. (Here snippets of Hitchcock, there stretches of "Speed," with wings on the bus.) Yet the silliness parades itself in a spirit of cheerful self-awareness, while Liam Neeson fills the thrill quotient impressively as an air marshal. show more

    Non-Stop gets increasingly far-fetched as the jet makes its way across the Atlantic. Certainly, there are more red herrings on the plane than there are in the sea below. And Neeson has to stare down every last one of them. show more

    The best twist is how Neeson’s growly presence makes a bumpy ride enjoyable. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    A constant low-boil of ridiculousness both mocks and sustains Non-Stop, a jerry-rigged terror-on-a-plane thriller with a premise so far-fetched as to create a degree of suspense over how the writers will wriggle out of the knot of their own making. show more

    It's Liam Neeson at his Neesoniest, and yet another entry in his expanding late-career bloom into gruff and commanding action hero. show more

    A relatively high-flying adventure, injecting the always-entertaining airplane-set thriller with some fresh thrills and a cadre of characters worth getting invested in. show more

    There’s a good measure of comedic relief doled out between the action sequences, e.g., Neeson coming up with an ingenious plan to placate the passengers when they’re on the verge of a rebellion. This is a movie that knows it’s not to be taken too seriously. show more

    Not even close to being Biblically correct. Demonic

    Good way to waste a couple hours. Like Liam Neeson shows and time went quickly for a story that never left the plane.

    Love Liam Neeson, and the movie certainly isn't boring. Per usual in action movies, there are ridiculously long and chatty conversations taking place all while the bomb will be exploding in 10 minutes!

    OK, but twisty suspense filled full of silliness and illogic. Although I had seen the entire film, I walked away feeling like there just had to be more to the movie that I had somehow missed.
