Again, he’s taking directions from someone over the phone to do some bad stuff, but this time, he knows who’s asking, as he’s met them on the seat opposite in a ridiculoudly over-CGI’d train carriage. You can tell it’s not First North Western, as those trains are a shithole.
Talking of shitholes, remember when Liam Neeson movies used to be good? That was a long time ago. If this film is worth any more than a 4/10 from me, I’ll be very surprised.
The Commuter is released in the UK on January 19th, 2018, and since January/February is always the dumping ground for terrible non-awards movies, you know how this will fare. Then again, Taken 3 was released in the same slot in 2015, and that made a fortune.
