Storyline

Now a hard-working life insurance salesman and a caring family man, the former police officer, Michael MacCauley, has taken the commuter rail to New York for the past ten years. But, unexpectedly, things will take a turn for the worse, when on one of his daily journeys, the cryptic passenger, Joanna, makes Michael a generous and tempting offer to locate a single commuter or face grave consequences. Is this a sick joke, or is this indeed a serious situation? As Michael races against the clock to solve this wicked conundrum, everyone aboard is a suspect, in a deal where there's definitely more than meets the eye. Can he decide in time who's the one?

Trivia

The phone on the corpse rings and comes up as 'Unknown'. This is the title of another film in which Liam Neeson stars. See more »

Goofs

The train Neeson's character rides is the Hudson Line of Metro-North, yet the station stops depicted as he returns home from Grand Central Terminal to Tarrytown are clearly NYC subway stops (86th Street, etc.). Metro-North commuter trains do not share train tracks or station stops with NYC subway lines. See more »

Joanna: What if someone asked you to do one little thing but would affect another passenger on this train? Would you do it?
Michael MacCauley: I don't know. What's in it for me?

Although Neeson's films r more like a déjà vu, he is definitely d new king of action films.
31 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

The character development scene showing Neeson's humdrum existence is very well done. Also noteworthy is the amount of tension created. I found the twist predictable but there r lots of other twists and turns. It is a solid entertainment n Neeson's fans like me will not b disappointed. I hav become a fan of this director. Jaume Collet-Serra has given some solid thrillers: House of Wax, Orphan, Unknown, Non-Stop, Run All Night and The Shallows. And as far as Neeson is concerned he is d new king of action films. Although he has turned into a deja vu, but it is always solid fun to c him in action n thriller films. I missed seeing this on a big screen. Saw this on a pirated hd dvd copy.
