If you like Liam Neeson, action movies, and Non Stop, you will LOVE this movie!
Although Neeson's films r more like a déjà vu, he is definitely d new king of action films. (by Fella_shibby)
The character development scene showing Neeson's humdrum existence is very well done. Also noteworthy is the amount of tension created. I found the twist predictable but there r lots of other twists and turns. It is a solid entertainment n Neeson's fans like me will not b disappointed. I hav become a fan of this director. Jaume Collet-Serra has given some solid thrillers: House of Wax, Orphan, Unknown, Non-Stop, Run All Night and The Shallows. And as far as Neeson is concerned he is d new king of action films. Although he has turned into a deja vu, but it is always solid fun to c him <more>
in action n thriller films. I missed seeing this on a big screen. Saw this on a pirated hd dvd copy.

Liam Neeson Rocks in This One! (by TheTruthDoor)
The Commuter is a rocking good time! Yes, it's a little over the top at the end...but it is still fun. Yes you have to NOT question parts of the logic Liam Neeson working in an office selling life insurance...no way but that is part of the fun of watching this film.The plot was very good and had some surprises in it even though most of the situations have been seen before. The sound and cinematography were excellent. Here I will sum up "The Commuter" for you: slow meaningful start, fun thrills in the middle, and a wild over the top ending. What fun!Go see "The <more>
Commuter", I promise you will not get "Taken"! TheTruthDoor never lies!
Fun movie, worth seeing on a big screen with big sound (by BibChr)
Neeson creates a likable, sympathetic character. This is necessary for the heightening of tension, which screws on inexorably until you just don't see any way out for him.The camera-work was particularly masterful - creative, meticulous, thought out to a granular level. There are two particular action-pieces towards the climax that are breathtaking, at least one of which looks like but surely isn't a single, extended take. The camera defines space and gravity, and is part of the expeience.Yes, there are some credibility straining factors. But it is after all a movie, not a <more>
procedural. On the other hand, there are some very neat surprises.Glad we saw it!
A satisfactory thriller with a few distractions.......... (by kashidomar)
The movie is quite a good movie and i really think movie lovers should go at it . It is a thrill spiced movie with many suspenses and hidden turns in the story . The movie flows around a commuter train and builds all the potential actions and dramas around it. Nice to see Liam Neeson in the central role . He has done extremely well and he has delivered these stuffs to us for many times. Actions are pretty new and mindblowing. Action lovers will like it certainly. The only draw back is the monotonous story but the pace of actions and suspenses has overcome it at last . So my opinion is 8/10.
Enjoyable ride (by phd_travel)
This thriller is different enough to be interesting. Set on a commuter train from Grand Central up the Hudson Valley, a man is given a mysterious task. I wasn't bored, didn't get too confused, and was into it till the satisfactory and satisfying ending. What more can you wan't from an action thriller with Liam Neeson? Likeable supporting cast including the enigmatic looking Vera Farmiga as a mystery lady who gives him a task. And her often on screen co-star Patrick Wilson plays a cop who is an ex partner of Liam. Jonathan Banks of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad has a small role <more>
as a fellow commuter. There are a few faults. Although the story is understandable and does come together there are a few things about the conspiracy and the villains at the end I didn't get even though I was concentrating as much as ought to be required for entertainment. The twist is acceptable if a little implausible. In fact if these people are so all seeing and smart why don't they just do it themselves? But these kinds of movies aren't meant to be analysed or they would all fall apart. Worth watching. A nice start to the year thriller wise.
