‘The Commuter’ Trailer: Liam Neeson Has His Own Train Mystery on The Way

Today must be the day for train-related movie trailers. First there was Murder on The Orient Express, now The Commuter, Liam Neeson’s action-hero swan song. And boy oh boy does it look silly.

In the following trailer you will see a bunch of David Fincher-esque camera-trick ripoffs, shoddy CGI, an evil Vera Farming (?) and one helluva ridiculous final shot. See for yourself:

In this action- packed thriller, Liam Neeson plays an insurance salesman, Michael, on his daily commute home, which quickly becomes anything but routine. After being contacted by a mysterious stranger (Vera Farmiga), Michael is forced to uncover the identity of a hidden passenger on his train before the last stop. As he works against the clock to solve the puzzle, he realizes a deadly plan is unfolding and is unwittingly caught up in a criminal conspiracy. One that carries life and death stakes, for himself and his fellow passengers.

So it’s Strangers on A Train mixed with his Non Stop airplane movie and about a dozen other, more well-conceived action thrillers. This one does not look particularly interesting really at all But maybe it’s your bag, and you want to see Neeson’s final action movie before he goes back to “serious” acting.

Anywho, The Commuter opens January 12, 2018… so yeah, that should tell you something.
