While Liam Neeson is undoubtedly an asset, Non-Stop wastes its cast -- not to mention its solid premise and tense setup -- on a poorly conceived story that hinges on a thoroughly unbelievable final act.

The filmmaking is playful without feeling jokey, the narrative stuffed with fun complications.

Neeson, who brings enormous conviction to these late-career action roles, moves his big body through confined spaces ... with so much power that you expect him to rip out the seats.

Anyone planning to see Non-Stop should probably just go see it. This is one of those near-perfect, peeled-onion, airplane-hijacking thrillers in which each removed layer brings you closer to a single, happy tear.

It's all fairly entertaining and eminently disposable.

The problem is that Non-Stop tries to be something it's not. It has one too many scenes that border on ludicrous, and the big reveal barely makes sense.

Non-Stop is the kind of film that Hitchcock might have made in his heyday, or at least one he would have enjoyed.

Full Review… | August 11, 2014

For a good 80 minutes, Non-Stop delivers exactly what the title promises - an escalating series of exciting set-pieces with a great, mysterious backbone. This is top grade Hollywood entertainment.

Full Review… | July 23, 2014

Non-Stop has thrills, the dread of falling out of the sky, with Neeson dishing out some fierce action; but at times this Cluedo on a plane it runs out of steam.

Non-Stop is an engaging mystery filled with thrills that's sure to keep you guessing with every twist and turn of the story.

Never coming to an airline screen near you, 'Non-Stop' is a silly but engaging action movie starring Liam Neeson as Bill Marks, a federal air marshal.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Neeson is again solid as a man with faults he must overcome to save those around him.

Full Review… | April 11, 2014

For the viewer who has thus far found the "Liam Neeson is a broken old man who pummels bad guys" genre to be devoid of any real merit, Non-Stop provides no counter-argument.

He elevates the otherwise B-movie thriller Non-Stop into a tense enough action picture.

Atlantic City Weekly

The premise is sure-fire, but director Jaume Collet-Serra's grip on the material is not as tight as the cabin pressure; moments of sentiment and unnecessary back story relieve the claustrophobia and stall the momentum.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The structure here is familiar, with various smaller twists and red herrings eventually leading to a big reveal of the true villain and his motives. In this case, that climax elicits more of a shrug than a gasp.

Neeson effectively redeems the potentially ludicrous murder mystery set aboard an airplane during a transatlantic flight with a compellingly gruff performance

Q Network Film Desk

Neeson is good but his character in the film is fuzzy and the overall plot makes little sense.

Full Review… | March 17, 2014

Mostly there's Neeson doing what he does profitably, glaring and growling through tight spots made to seem less preposterous by his presence. Other action heroes are sprier, more handsome or ripped but these days nobody snaps a neck better.

Tampa Bay Times

The whole concept to Non-Stop is completely hackneyed and frivolous, but remains compelling given the fast paced, guessing game that ensues.

Full Review… | March 10, 2014

Liam Neeson is at it again in yet another enjoyable, disposable French-produced action flick in which a hapless, dishevelled guy with big personal problems is forced by circumstance to jump, run, growl and shoot people - often all at the same time.

The film reaches stratospheric heights of preposterousness, but the mix of whodunit intrigue, ticking-bomb suspense and pockets of turbulent action is ridiculously enjoyable.

Audience Reviews for Non-Stop

Non-stop is highly preposterous and has some ludicrous plot twists, but it is fairly entertaining thanks to the presence of Liam Neeson and his no non-sense performance that keeps things from getting cheesy and out of hand. The supporting cast is solid too, with the highest profiled being Julianne Moore. There are times in the film when I think they overused elements of the story and would have been better of going with a more traditional approach, but they were going for a new age type thriller here so that's understandable. Ultimately, it is a serviceable, but forgettable Liam Neeson thriller that isn't as good as some of his other recent films in this genre.

I can't say I'm a big fan of these current Liam Neeson action films. They're becoming a little bit samey. Non-Stop is set on an airplane, is a mix up of Hitchcock and Agatha Christie (see Ten Little Indians), has text messages pop up on screen and has the lead man as a washed up alcoholic 'washed up' ex-Cop. Sounds dreadful doesn't it? Well, rather surprisingly it isn't! The rather formulaic formula suddenly works. Okay, so there are a few cliches that you really will need to try to ignore to achieve full entertainment but it's actually really good. It's an unpredictable 'Who done it', is quite clever and is generally entertaining throughout. Just enough to make it a four star film over three stars and certainly two more stars than I thought I would be giving it.

A high-flying and intriguing Hitchcock style thriller on steroids. A first-class, edge of your seat thrill-machine that's laced with suspense, tension, action and so many twist and turns that will keep you guessing right to the end. A tremendously entertaining, wickedly original, explosively tense and adrenaline-charged roller-coaster ride. It's pure intense escapism fun from start to finish. A crisp, smart and razor-sharp thinking-man's action-thriller. An instant classic. It has a surprisingly good amount of depth and character development between some of the characters that helps keep the story going forward. Director, Jaume Collet-Serra crafts a ridiculously enjoyable and thrilling follow-up to him and Nesson's film Unknown. Collet-Serra is a refreshing new eye to intelligent thrillers. Liam Nesson delivers an awesome performance, he shines once again with his enormous conviction to this role and adds more than most, making him a true and ideal action hero. Neeson just gets better as the years go on and totally owns this roles. Julianne Moore is terrific. I loved this movie.

Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians gets the modern thriller treatment and Liam Neeson cashs yet another adventure/action star paycheck playing a harried air marshall trying to find a cocky murderer 30,000 feet in the air. Time is running out.
And whodunit? The Arab terrorist looking guy? The too smooth talking co-pilot? The stewardess with the nervous shaky hands? The second Arab terrorist looking guy? The redhead babe making nicely-nicely with the goo goo eyes? Whodunit?!?
Formulaic, yet well done formulaic, with plenty of red herrings, and thus fun.
