At the beginning of the movie the book "The Shadow of the Wind", by Carlos Ruiz Zafón can be seen on Liam Neeson's nightstand. Zafón is from Barcelona, as is director Jaume Collet-Serra. See more »
As they are trying to decouple the train's last car, there's an outside shot of the train speeding by. The train speed is high, but not one of the leaves of the trees close to the tracks seems to move. See more »
Although Neeson's films r more like a déjà vu, he is definitely d new king of action films.
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.
