THE COMMUTER (M)
FOXTEL NOW, NETFLIX
This much we already know about any Liam Neeson movie from the last decade or so: harass him into a tight spot in any way, and he will triumph as a hard-ass hero by the time the closing credits roll. Liam is taking his usual train ride home when sinister powers-that-be message him an offer he is in no position to refuse. If a rumpled, rattled Neeson doesn’t identify the seating allocation for a mysterious wanted passenger by the last stop on the line, then his wife and kid are gonna get it. The movie gets crazier and dodgier as it rattles along — almost every plot point relies on an efficiency in public transport scheduling that does not exist — but boredom is never an option. Co-stars Sam Neill.
