WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
On an international flight from New York to London, US federal air marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives numerous texts stating that if $150 million isn’t transferred into a secret bank account, people will start dying on the plane. Sure enough, passengers start getting axed off every 20 minutes and Marks must race to find the culprit. However, that’s made much more difficult when the account is revealed to be in Marks’ name…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Liam Neeson is back to do what he has shown recently to do best with a high-octane action thriller set almost entirely within the confounds of a 747 international flight.
