    Yeah but he didn't know someone might come to harm at first. It was only after he was given that package with his wife's wedding ring that he really started to change and his police instincts kicked in.

    It's not a bad movie, there were some things that were a bit odd though.
    Continuity: In the very beginning of the movie we see him sit in a car with his wife.. It is supposed to be on different days, but the exact same raindrops are on the windows on different days.

    When she states that a GPS tracker was to be placed on the target I initially thought it was to trace the person of interest, that would make sense with GPS.. but that wasn't the case. They needed it to pinpoint a person on a metro. You don't use GPS for that. You use something like Bluetooth for that. Bluetooth has a huge signal drop-off within 2m and works by pairing. This means their hitman would only have to stroll up and down the train and he'd spot him, underground or not. It's way more precise. I guess you could use both, GPS outside 5-10m and Bluetooth within, but it doesn't say in the movie they did.
    His friend Murphy was acting suspect almost from the beginning.. and the fact that the only person who knew he was on that train was his family and him made him even more suspect. They don't really touch on this till the end of the movie, but it's apparent pretty much when he is contacted by the lady in the first place.

    I agree with your take on. Entertaining, good acting, good action, just too much unbelievable timing and a slightly convoluted plot. Overall, it was as good as I could of hoped for from a Liam Neeson film I didn’t know existed before it was recommended to me after I asked for a good crime thriller like Zodiac, Prisoners, and A Walk Amung the a Tombstones. Not as good as those three but a perfect recommendation for what I was in the mood for!

    I couldn't believe how thin, gaunt Liam looked. He's aged so fast. Looked about 75 years old in it. What a shock.

    Very enjoyable, albeit flawed movie. The third act is kinda ridiculous, but overall it's a 6/10 for me.
    How is Neeson 66, by the way?

    I don't know if it's the Hitchcock style of intrigue and suspense but I can't stop watching "The Commuter". From the memorizing Vera Farmiga to the always delightful to watch Liam Neeson, the Commuter is slowly creeping up my top films of the year list. Plus this film has one of the most beautiful musical scores since "Interstellar".
    The movie is such a delight to watch.

  • Captain Cluster
    Captain Cluster 5 months ago

    I thought the first half was great, intelligent and well crafted. Unfortunately it got more and more silly with some extremely ropey CGI near the end. It really didn't need to become an over the top action movie as it was doing fine as a Hitchcock type mystery up until the fists started flying.

    It's so close to a good movie, but then the director decided to turn it into a total stinker with all that over the top action bullshit.

  • Theo Little
    Theo Little 5 months ago

    One thing I noticed with the camerawork was that the shots that took place off of the train kinda swayed, as if you were moving back and forth slightly, like in a moving transport. Then we get on the train and the shots are on a steady cam. I just found that interesting, but I don’t know if it was mere observation or an actual choice made by the director or cinematographer.

    Nope, i just got done watching this. I felt like every piece of acting was set out to be some kind of punchline.. all the time. It didnt enchant me at all, there were a couple of times i couldnt restrain myself from rolling my eyes. And then the ending.. *SPOILER ALERT* where everybody admits that they are all the person the killer was looking for. I am prim.. NO I AM PRIM.. noo, i am prim. Good lord, could they have portrayed the king of overcoming adversity (liam neeson) even more tacky on the big screen. Im gonna go watch Taken again.

    It was a lot better than I expected, but the end where the shooters don't realise a target changing colour before their eyes nearly killed the whole movie. Yeh, there are so many implausible events like in many movies(eg. unkown bad guys way too powerful/all knowing), but at least you can suspend your disbelief a little with that. You definitely can't in regards to the target changing right before the shot and them somehow not noticing.

  • Vookie

    YOU GUYS DONT KNOW POINT OF THE MOVIE. Movie starts with scenes where Michael get up every morning and first thing he do is listening the media. And media talk mostly about bad things. Also just before last scene we can see how much media had talked about that accident on train. Joanna and her group... they are not assassins, they don't work for rich people who try to hide evidence. THEY WORK FOR MEDIA. THEY WORK FOR SHADOW GOVERNMENT WHO OWNS MEDIA. Look today media, they talk only about mass murderers, terrorist attacks, wars, killers, Black Chronicle is more then 60% of news today. I dont know how bad news impact us "people" but they do. The point is MEDIA needed some big thing some big accident some big story so people have what to listen. Mass shootings in USA is example. All of those are set up. And that is the point of the movie. Media control people and media always need new stories so they sometimes must make false flags. Sorry for bad english.

    Despite some minor and forgivable flaws, this movie was a powerhouse. The directing was focused and precise, the cinematography was beautiful and well-balanced, the pacing was fast and rhythmic, the suspense was as intense as any Hitchcock movie, and the cast blended it all together. This is action filmmaking done right.
    The ending was perfect. When he pulled out his badge . . .

    i think they should stop randomly naming characters played by liam neeson in these kind of movies and just start calling them liam neeson. they're all liam neeson played by liam neeson living though liam neeson's life, because this is how i imagine liam neeson's daily routine is. and that was a lot of liam neeson in a single sentence.

    Part 3: The Ship..?! (or spaceship, more futuristic) Take a guess

    The composer did also a really good job especially at the beginning of the film with this montage of daily life.
    Yeah !

  • Movie Hub
    Movie Hub 9 months ago

    To be honest, I think the hate that this film received by critics was totally unnecessary. For starters, no one goes into a Liam Neeson film expecting an excellent plot, beautiful cinematography and Oscar worthy performances, people go into a Liam Neeson film expecting an easy to understand plot, cool action scenes and some cheesy dialogue. The film wasn't perfect and it definitely had it's flaws, but it was fun, enjoyable and quite funny at certain points as well. Good review Chris.

    I like that the background characters had a part in the conspiracy. Generally the main characters are the only ones who know the details of the conflict. It was kind of cool when Neesan realized who killed Ricky...and the camera panned over to the passengers faces.

    I got an ad for this film before the video. A mixture of Taken and Non-stop. Neeson is the ex something with mad skills, uncovers a conspiracy, almost destroys something and by the end he is the previously misunderstood hero. Like Chris said, Non-stop on a train with a few tweaks.

  • Stellar Visions
    Stellar Visions 10 months ago

    I saw The Commuter and feel it must be said that the story didn't make a lick of sense. It proves that writing doesn't have to be good to get a film made. The inciting scene is a confusing conversation where a stranger offers the protagonist a task of finding hidden money as payment for a completely indescribable job of identifying someone specific that doesn't fit in, and placing a tracker on their baggage. Try describing the plot to anybody. It's totally stupid. A conspiracy of police setting up an ex-cop to take the fall for one murder, by killing anybody needed to convince the ex-cop to kill the witness of the original murder, who (detachedly listening to music) is catching a train to meet the feds for protection. Chris - you gave it a B ... a B!!!!

    I ride this exact same train line to the same exact destination (as Liam Neeson's character) all the time! I must say that, while they took some artistic liberties with the film, it was still quite faithful to the real life Metro North train. Now, if only the lovely Vera Farmiga would come sit next to me one of these days...
