Critic Reviews of "The Commuter"
New YorkerJanuary 15, 2018
The set pieces and the cliché dialogue seem piled on randomly ...
San Diego ReaderJanuary 12, 2018
If you don't think too hard about why Neeson gets brought in or how the baddies operate or what the point is, you may be able to enjoy yourself. At least until the final act, when the film goes off the rails. Like a train might do.
New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 12, 2018
The train is the most realistic performer here, but you could do a lot worse.
The AtlanticJanuary 12, 2018
Jaume Collet-Serra has always exulted in details-it's what helps him stand out as an artist even though he mostly makes this kind of easily dismissed genre fare.
SlateJanuary 12, 2018
[Liam] Neeson lands plenty of punches, but the movie works best when he's fighting shadows or fighting himself.
Globe and MailJanuary 12, 2018
With Collet-Sera in the conductor's seat, and Neeson his increasingly eager attendant, the film stays on track.
The Arts DeskJanuary 18, 2018
It's formulaic and you can probably guess the ending, but it's a pacy, enjoyable thriller capable of laughing at itself.
The Young FolksJanuary 17, 2018
It might be a flashy piece of entertainment, but it's not a stupid one.
Flicks.co.nzJanuary 17, 2018
As relentless as its sixty five-year-old lead actor and eager to entertain, logic be damned.
Pittsburgh City PaperJanuary 17, 2018
The first half of the film is better than the second - it sets up a recognizable character and lets him work through a moral quandary.
ChrisStuckmann.comJanuary 17, 2018
It doesn't overstay its welcome, it doesn;t overstep its boundaries with its plot. It just tries to be an entertaining movie with characters that you can get behind.
Stuff.co.nzJanuary 17, 2018
Spanish helmer Collet-Serra keeps the action, twists and conspiracy coming thick and fast, while also throwing in some artful editing and genuine jumps.
