The Commuter

Sometimes it is enough that action movies have action. The Commuter It doesn’t matter that they also have notable script inconsistencies or that the MacGuffin comes across with so little charm that it had better be left lost. The passenger, by Jaume Collet-Serra (Deep fear, The orphan), is one of those films. The action practically takes place during all its 105 minutes of duration, it has well-executed and even emotional sequences and even handles certain moments of tension that help the viewer to stay attentive to this pigeon entertainment vehicle whose story does not resist being thought with cool head.

The script by Byron Willinger, Philip de Blasi and Ryan Engle is puny, but Collet-Serra manages to pull it off supported by the starring role of Liam Neeson, the 65-year-old Irish actor who has become a fall action hero. and whom the Spanish filmmaker has directed in Non Stop: Sin escalas (2014) and Una noche para survive (2015), other stories in which, like in this one in question, his character has limited time to save the life and that of others .

In The Passenger, Neeson plays Michael McCauley, an insurance salesman who makes the daily train ride to commute from the suburbs to his job in New York City (an engaging prologue shows this routine in different climates and situations). You face several significant expenses when you are laid off after ten years of service. That same day he is in a bar with Alex Murphy (Patrick Wilson), his former partner in the police, his previous job.
