Consensus: While Liam Neeson is undoubtedly an asset, Non-Stop wastes its cast -- not to mention its solid premise and tense setup -- on a poorly conceived story that hinges on a thoroughly unbelievable final act.

The filmmaking is playful without feeling jokey, the narrative stuffed with fun complications.

Why demand logic of an action movie released in February, when audiences just want a nice, bumpy ride?

If there's a film that is pretty much true to its name, then this one is it. Another variation on the classic theme of a plane hijack, the movie is relentless with not a wasted second.

Neeson, who brings enormous conviction to these late-career action roles, moves his big body through confined spaces ... with so much power that you expect him to rip out the seats.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

It's all fairly entertaining and eminently disposable.

This, as you may have already guessed, is not a good film, in many ways it is an awful film, but that, interestingly enough, is not to say that this isn't a fun film and a great ride.

Anyone planning to see Non-Stop should probably just go see it. This is one of those near-perfect, peeled-onion, airplane-hijacking thrillers in which each removed layer brings you closer to a single, happy tear.

The problem is that Non-Stop tries to be something it's not. It has one too many scenes that border on ludicrous, and the big reveal barely makes sense.

The Monitor (McAllen, TX)

Clocking in at more than 200 minutes, the film plods along a muck of bad dialogue, contrived tension, finicky logic, and a sense that no one had the energy to create a solid pace in the first place.

A highly entertaining action movie that overcomes its flaws (mainly an almost unbelievable last act) with a suspenseful whodunit, an awesome, badass Liam Neeson… More

Flawed, yet worth a shot.

What does this title even mean? seriously I know most action flicks have ridiculous names simply to look and sound cool (Rush Hour, Maximum Force, Sudden Death)… More

Jaume Collet-Serra takes a one way trip with Non-Stop. Seemingly like a run-of-the-mill action thriller, 100 minutes on a plane turns into an engaging mystery.… More
