Taken has been one of the most talked-about action thrillers of Liam Neeson. But it seems that he is pretty comfortable in this genre. The Commuter, his latest venture is another addition in this section.
An apparently boring daily commute turns out to be nightmarish when Michael Macaulay played by Liam Neeson gets embroiled in a dangerous criminal conspiracy. Michael who leads an apparently boring life suddenly faces some financial problems and confides in his ex-colleague. And when he is returning in a train, he meets a woman Joanna who makes an offer to him which is absolutely irresistible.
The next part of the movie is very similar to Taken where Liam has to rush against time to save his family. Any Neeson movie, and you can expect some high octane scenes. The fast-paced action scenes are worth a watch. And if you are a fan of action thriller, you will never be disappointed.
Some of the scenes are so gripping, that they will leave you on the edge of the seat. And as you are driven more and more into the web of lies and deceit, you rack your brains with Neeson to see the end of mystery.
Like all his other movies, Neeson is of course an ex-cop, so his action scenes and his expertise in digging the truth never seem unrealistic. Vera Farmiga, who essays the character of Joanna has done a brilliant job. She totally traps an unsuspecting Liam and the way she discloses her plan to Liam is simply brilliant.
The camera work is fluid so the action sequences become believable and realistic. This is the fourth venture of director Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson. No wonder, the camaraderie is flawless. A taut script combined with amazing performances and a series of unexpected twists will leave you hooked to the screen throughout the movie.
