It is no secret that Jaume will Collet Serra likes to work with Liam Neeson, so that the products of their combines creativity come out often enough. The most interesting thing about them, perhaps, the name. "Unknown", "Air Marshal" (aka "Non-Stop") and"Night of the running man" — headers, to be honest, very conditional. The irony spread on the mechanics of those thrillers, which was good, but still pretty much relied not so that, in my opinion, he should be. "the Passenger" of course, sounds has just tasteful, but the fourth project cooperation is not out of line. Only in the seemed to me, the shortcomings were turned into the pros and overall, the film impresses with its style and speed, which in the end of the day, hides not the strongest logic of the narrative.

Many have criticized the story line of "Passenger" and to be honest, there is really a lot of repeats of the same "Air Marshal", the plane was replaced with the train, heading from Manhattan somewhere in upstate new York. Neeson plays Michael, a retired detective, is happily leading a family life in one-story America. In one travel stranger (Vera Farmiga) offers Michael a job, and suddenly, the stakes are very high.

The majority of the "Passengers" takes place in a confined space cars why why the picture you want to christen not otherwise "die hard in the train". With one hand, the scenario is predictable, obeying the laws of the genre: attempts to alert the authorities about the incident the train crash in various reasons, but some of the plot solutions sucked from the finger. With the other hand, the plot of "the Passenger" has a strong side, which is that the creators support the uncertainty as Michael comes in train to the third act. In the final, it is a bit far-fetched, to my mind, the explanation, but for most of the movie is sturdy and stylish detective. In particularly memorable scene makeshift game in which a Grand action Packed in the end.

Almost charming and how the creators have used various restrictions imposed by the confined space of the commuter train. Many do remember: a fistfight the passage between cars, a clever way to calculate the desired passenger and many other interesting findings. And the passenger train, apparently, the same that in Russia in new York: the screaming colleagues business banker, the guy who plays in the phone is not turning off the sound, the girl, shutting up his ears headphones music and etc.

The mystery unfolding in"the Passenger," are quite ingenious. It dictates the desired image for Neeson. In such as "Taken," Liam Neeson played dangerous men, able to kill at any circumstances. I personally prefer the hero, represented in "the Passenger", i.e., for a person who survive in situations he hit, then her response is force firearms diplomacy. And these characters Neeson can play without any problems, but here interested in the fact that the image is a little younger than the actor — sends the movie turned 60 years. Despite what he can still smack blows to the adversary, he still not a superhero that works in entertainment in the chamber militant. Farmiga, for unfortunately, appears in the only as voice, Patrick Wilson and Sam Neill presents "Chekhov's guns".

Action-Thriller "Passenger", of course, not is a great movie, but this is a good combination of non-stop action and fairly intriguing detective ties. Although the plot to not really so and deep, "the Passenger," he not needed. It just the case when it is possible to turn off the brain and enjoy a quick trip in commuter train. A stylish way of shooting (from the wonderful prologue, which will probably be familiar mired in the routine of the people) to interesting finds in the action-Packed scenes will capture the attention even in those moments when he hero the performance of Liam Neeson losing ground. He script some point is going with rails, but on this train to sit still should be.

Thriller with Liam Neeson. It is almost brand. If not assume the continuation of the "Hostage" and another couple of failures. "Passenger" to outright failures as not relevant. But and a breakthrough is not pull. Stuck somewhere in the middle.

The main problem of "the Passenger" — this is a complex and implausible story structure. It directly sucked from the finger. With inspection I had one question "Why?". Why are they all up to? Why you wanted the old Liam nervously ramble on cars? Why all the cheap theatrics? Why was it necessary to start this quest commuter train? All the same can be solved much easier. Any student will tell you how. Response to "Why?" perhaps a simple: "That was fun". This is partly the excellent of the film. Partly spoils from the film experience.

Well, the final. Just exemplary stamp. In"the Passenger" is generally a lot of punches, but they so stick out like final.

Of the advantages of — a strange place of the action (train), a certain intimacy (almost the entire film in her ride), the game of Neeson (who, it seems, moonlight is not able), the character (older just fired insurance agent with a mortgage loan and other serious financial commitments). No, about the character lied. Elderly insurance agent turns out to be a box with a surprise. Well, that was interesting.


In fact, all said in the header. Pass Thriller that will soon be forgotten.

Decided to go for this product to the cinema, etc K. interested in the plot shown in the trailer. &Nbsp;but I doubt about this project, but check out their the validity was only possible after watching the film. The more so in the movie, but it was interesting for me. So, I'm not disappoint. Yes still actors gathered my favorite.

In recent years, Neeson movies come out not much, although some of them looked pretty promising as for example, an Air Marshall, and were average. On this painting I have pinned some hope and I'm not disappoint. Although I thought it is the genre will relate to a detective Thriller and no more, but also a significant proportion of action there is present. But I think it spoils the tape. Exactly how not spoils the presence of humor, it here is very little, but it may seem inappropriate. The impression of him lubricated, the picture withstands serious tone.

The story in the first place draws its plot, and further intrigued even more by the development of events. No not game. Is plot the unexpected turns and dramatic scenes and the detective component and betrayal and many other things that was in the previous films with the participation of Neeson. He, despite in picture in life, courageously faces the threat looks good in action scenes, valiantly takes the wounds, working fast in critical situations. Especially liked the one of the hand-to-hand fights in the car, it is very well put. Generally there is not one melee and no one from the main character has no benefits, so for him in these moments are going through and look at screen voltage. Voltage test and in other scenes, where this requires dire the situation was. It works.

The main character — in the first sight of the man, which millions, here is only due to his past, he on the shoulder to correct this situation in the train. I think it is because of this past it and chose attackers. Just retired would failed. Neeson plays as usually, the hero is trying by all means to save his family. Nothing to do I like this his role, the more he plays this role very well. But here P. Wilson and V. Farmiga was very little, I expected to more. Have only a couple of scenes, very important, but know them seem possible, they are the characters are very superficial. It is a pity that these actors are so used, worth more and are able to play. So all attention is on Neeson.

In General, it is another film where Neeson, thanks to the skills and experience in the past, trying to save the family and to give back the criminals. Similar to previous works but it turned out to be more interesting, intense, exciting. And he once again reminds us not should take the strange request, strange, strangers, especially cute.
