It was probably bad timing, but with the common theme of a train and a mystery, The Commuter felt like a darker version of Murder On The Orient Express. The action film is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and stars Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Jonathan Banks and Patrick Wilson to name a few.
The story revolves around commuter Michael McCauley (Neeson), who on his train ride home is joined by a stranger that suggests to him a hypothetical offer that turns out to be dangerously true. On a race to identify a passenger before the last train stop, Michael soon realises he is caught in the middle of a criminal conspiracy.
The Commuter held a good storyline filled with action and suspense and did not make it easy to guess the identity of the passenger. A good performance by Neeson and overall an entertaining movie.
