Non-Stop Prime, 8.30pm Star­ring Liam Nee­son, Ju­lianne Moore. Like many of the re­cent films Liam Nee­son has starred in, there is a cer­tain B-grade feel to this ac­tion thriller. This time he plays a US air mar­shall who must catch a killer on­board a transAt­lantic flight. It’s silly stuff, with a lu­di­crous end­ing, but the whole pro­duc­tion is re­deemed by some suit­ably slick ac­tion scenes. ★★★

John Wick: Chap­ter 2 Sky Premiere, 8.30pm Star­ring Keanu Reeves, Lau­rence Fish­burne. Reeves dishes up more high-oc­tane, highly vi­o­lent, fe­ro­cious thrills and fun as he re­turns as hit­man ex­traor­di­naire John Wick. The se­quel picks up a few days

after the events of the first film when an old ac­com­plice forces Wick out of re­tire­ment and into the path of ev­ery killer in town. But for­get the nar­ra­tive and just go along for the ride as the body count rises. It might be bloody, but it’s also sur­pris­ingly witty and de­liv­ers in spades. ★★★★
