“Non-Stop”

Need a good popcorn thriller before Valentine’s Day? Try Jaume Collet-Sera’s “Non-Stop”. Maybe I still feel akin to claustrophobic air travel and Barcelona,but this forty- year -old Spanish director has given us one hour and forty minutes of tension inducing,edge-of-your-seat villainy.

Liam Neeson is good sixty-two year old eye candy, and he and Julianne Moore bring enough depth of character and backstory for the viewer to care. Yet,Corey Stoll’s New York cop role is more note-worthy.I changed my villain choice numerous times throughout the film,as did my seat mates. The script is flawed,but the one drawback that irked me most was soldiers and teachers getting a bad rap as deluded revenge patriots. Genre comments,please.
