Non-Stop combines the post-Taken action hero persona of Liam Neeson and the unseen enemy trope, and provides minor thrills

​Bill Marks is a US air marshal on a flight to London. After the plane takes off, he gets a text message from a mysterious person who threatens to kill a passenger every 20 minutes if their demand for $150 million is not met. Taking into confidence one of the flight attendants and the middle-aged woman seated beside him, Marks starts investigating, but by the end of the deadline, the flight’s other air marshal dies in the hands of Marks! The pilot, too, dies mysteriously after another 20 minutes, and, suspicion turns to Marks, who is an alcoholic and has been in a depressed state ever since his daughter’s death. What’s more, the account number to which the money has to be transferred is found to belong to Marks. Is it Marks who is committing the murders or is he merely a scapegoat? Jaume Collet-Serra combines the post-Taken middle-aged, weary action hero persona of Liam Neeson and the unseen enemy trope, and comes up with a film that provides the minor thrills and the undemanding mystery that we seek in a genre film.
