Hasclose to a sum of the major roles or profile, as in Schindler’s List, Batman Begins or the new Star Wars trilogy, Liam Neeson has become over Taken and it is followed by a figure emblematic of the film mid-action, semi-thriller the next few years. It is found with NON-STOP director Jaume Collet-Serra, with whom he has collaborated on Without an Identity, there still a little in the same vein, for a closed air is not quite of the highest caliber.
In fact, the film succeeds overall where you least expect, that is to say, in the B-series action. Effectively, hunting to the man in a place as claustrophobique that a plane in flight reveals itself as the major part of the film is to be successful. The suspense is well led, the search for the terrorist hidden among those present on this flight and the various twists animating the plot are forgotten, most of the time, the incredibility is a well-known a large part of the scenario. The characters of Liam Neeson, although it’s a bit of a caricature as marshall tortured, and Juliette Moore work pretty well together and the realization of rhythm allows the viewer to return without trouble in this action thriller.
With a legacy of friendly action films of the 80s and 90s, NON-STOP only happens, however, not to transcend or the genre of the disaster movie air, nor that of the thriller of the 2000s. In addition to visual codes and narrative extremely worn although handled effectively here, the denouement of the film, in particular made to lose the foot to the viewer and dark in a ridiculous and agreed to be very damaging for the whole of the film.
“With a legacy of friendly action films of the 80s and 90s, NON-STOP only happens, however, not to transcend or the genre of the disaster movie air, nor that of the thriller of the 2000s.”
In fact, NON-STOP is a entertainment honest : done technically in a manner honourable and quite fast-paced and panting to pique the interest of the viewer, the film of Jaume Collet-Serra is not a turnip. However, his end to undercut a lot of the work done globally on the feature film and transforms an action film nice, though modest in scope and do not require the basic intellectual activity that is sustained, in work simply passable and quickly forgettable. Damage.
