The Commuter-Kids’ Movie Review

Life is good for Michael MacCauley (Liam Neeson). He has a good job as an insurance salesman, he’s happily married, and has a teenage son who’s headed to Syracuse University. Michael has a very regimented daily routine as he commutes on the train everyday in and out of New York. Michael’s life dramatically changes on one of his daily commutes. He learns that he’s going to get fired, just when he needs to pay a lot of money for his son’s college tuition. Feeling very sad and defeated, Michael’s train ride is not going very well, and it eventually gets even worse. A woman on the train offers him $100,000 if he’s willing to find a passenger who doesn’t belong on the train, and he must find this person before the train’s last stop. Michael soon realizes that his wife and son will be in danger if he doesn’t follow the rules. Now Michael has to figure this strange puzzle not only to save his family’s life but also the innocent victims on the train.

Overall this is an exciting action packed drama. Having said that it’s very similar to Liam Neeson’s  previous films. Parents need to be aware of the language and excessive violence.
