Liam Neeson recently said that he was going to stop making action films – but don’t worry, he’s got a few bullets already in the chamber and set for release. The first of these is The Commuter (the second is Hard Powder), a new action-thriller from Neeson’s frequent collaborator Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop, Unknown and Run All Night). This trailer looks exactly the way you would imagine it to be – for better or for worse. But I do enjoy a good train-set thriller.
In this action-packed thriller, Liam Neeson plays an insurance salesman, Michael, on his daily commute home, which quickly becomes anything but routine. After being contacted by a mysterious stranger, Michael is forced to uncover the identity of a hidden passenger on his train before the last stop. As he works against the clock to solve the puzzle, he realizes a deadly plan is unfolding and is unwittingly caught up in a criminal conspiracy. One that carries life and death stakes, for himself and his fellow passengers.
