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.
