Non-Stop Terror, A ticking time bomb 40,000ft in the air!
Making a film about the USA’s most feared terrorist attack and someone trying to prevent it, yea that sounds like a suspenseful two hours. Non-Stop, a suspenseful nonstop thriller witch is absolutely successful in providing an atmosphere of utmost distress and uncertainty. Liam Neeson is the perfect actor for this film; he is great at providing a sense of authority and the “wise man” attitude for any situation. Non-Stop is the perfect title and emphasizes the non-stop terror and calamity portrayed in a commercial airline 40,000ft. above sea level. The insane twist in this movie is realizing the least expected character turns out being the antagonist who plots to take down the transatlantic flight instead of the original plans.
Liam Neeson plays as flight marshal Bill Marks and has his outstanding reputation from his past films such as Schindler’s List, The Grey, Star Wars, and Taken. He usually plays the character of great authority such as inter-galactic Jedi Master, ex-FBI agent, or father. Jaume Collet-Serra directed and produced the 2014 film Non-Stop, also produced of Unknown, House of Wax, and Orphan. Bill Marks is a Federal Air Marshal and also an alcoholic due to his daughter’s death to cancer and his ex-wife. The film begins with him boarding transatlantic flight 10 from New York to London with no stops along the way. Once at cruising altitude he gets a mysterious text from an unknown number that has breached a federal network to communicate with Marks. The mystery man demands $150 million dollars deposited in a specific bank account or else he will kill one person on that flight every 20 minutes. He decides to break rules consulting the other Air Marshall Jack Hammond about the situation but discovers Hammond is smuggling cocaine. An argument follows and Marks ends up having to kill Hammond witch coincidently happens at the 20 min mark. He decides to locate the mystery man’s identity by using the flight crew to watch the cameras aboard for anyone who might be replying to Marks. All altercations Marks make with the passengers who appear to be texting leads them to believe the he is hijacking the plane and alerts the Federal Aviation Administration causing national worry. After the next 20 minutes are up the Pilot is killed leaving the less experienced co-pilot to land the now national threat transatlantic flight to safety alongside two British fighter jets threatening to shoot down the plane if the course is altered.
