REVIEW: Nonstop


Over Spring break, my dad and cousins were looking for something to do. Too late to go to the park, too expensive to go out to a restaurant, considering the number of us, and too boring to not do something.

Running out of ideas, we turned on the TV hoping that an idea comes up, and just our luck, one did. The preview filled the screen. Loud music played and our eyes were glued to the TV. Our attentions were caught, and our light bulbs clicked on. The preview was good, very good in fact.

 The movie was about an alcoholic air marshal named Bill Marks, played by Liam Neeson, on a non-stop flight from New York to London. What seems to be a normal protocol all changed midway over the Atlantic Ocean, when Marks receives text messages on his secure work phone stating that someone on the plane will die every 20 minutes unless $150 million is transferred into an unknown bank account.

Throughout the entire movie, deaths, issues, danger, and suspicion arise as Marks is on a mission to stop this new found terrorist. The action left me twisting in my chair and gripping the armrests.The acting was very well done, as Liam Neeson never fails. The plot of the movie was truly one a kind, as it is full of action, suspense and mystery.

Although, many critic’s responses were mixed, according to Entertainment Weekly, Nonstop proved to be a box office success, ending its opening weekend with $30 million dollars.

Personally, I have never seen an action movie that can leave one irritated, anxious, suspicious and excited. Time to time, the film even gave me goosebumps from the tension portrayed. This movie is a non stop thriller, and I recommend it to anyone and everyone.
