Goofs

The "Hudson North" commuter train was a veiled representation of the actual Metro North trains than run from Grand Central Station in New York City to Westchester County. These trains go directly from Grand Central Station and make only 1 stop in Manhattan, 125th St. Mike's train made several stops in Manhattan which could only have been made by the Lexington Avenue subway line before reaching 125th St. In addition there is no commuter train stop at Yankee Stadium.

Liam Neeson played by Liam Neeson. You've seen it before. But, it's still entertaining.
12 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

There are certain actors in Hollywood that are so one-dimensional, but they play that one-dimension spot on. Liam Neeson is one of those guys. Another example is Jason Statham. Their roles are all the same, scripts slightly tweaked, yet the movie passes of as decent-to-good almost every time (except for the Taken sequels, but that isn't on Liam).

Bottom line is, it's basically the movie non-stop, but on a commute instead of a plane. Liam Neeson plasy his same old self and plays his usual one-dimensional badass role. He did his job once again. This movie will bring in okay-enough numbers, and we will be presented with Liam Neeson's next challenge in about another year.

Same old, decent-enough action movie.

6/10
