Review Roundup: Neeson and Moore star in NON-STOP

Related: Review Roundup, NON-STOP, Liam Neeson

The suspense thriller NON-STOP, starring Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Nate Parker, Michelle Dockery and Scoot McNairy opens in theaters today. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and produced by Joel Silver, this movie has often been described as "TAKEN on a plane."

During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the government to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes.

What did the critics think?

Adam Graham | The Detroit News

"NON-STOP spends so much time trying to outwit the audience it ends up outwitting itself. It's one of those movies where everyone is a suspect and everyone is dismissed as a suspect, and the more they're dismissed as a suspect, the more they start looking like the suspect."

Kenneth Turan | Los Angeles Times

"Effectively directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who previously worked with Neeson in UNKNOWN, Non-Stop is a crisp, efficient thriller that benefits greatly from the intangibles Neeson can be counted on to supply." Read the full review here.

Steven Rea | Philadelphia Inquirer

"NON-STOP finds Neeson at it again, although in circumstances that test credulity, and appear to test the mettle of the man himself. Can he stand up to the rickety ludicrousness of this airplane-hijacking thriller, which exploits our fears of post-9/11 travel? Can he make convincing the boozy, rattled caricature he's been given to play?" Read the full review here.

Ian Buckwalter | NPR

"But if it works, it's because Neeson and Collet-Serra, as well as Julianne Moore as Neeson's business-class seatmate Jen, are all fully aware of how ludicrous this exercise is... Neeson does indeed have a very particular set of skills - in elevating the generic action thriller into guilt-free popcorn pleasure." Read the full review here.
