Bill Marks (played by Liam Neeson) is a depressed, alcoholic, chain smoking, air marshal who is deathly afraid of take-offs.
On a flight to London, Marks gets a text message on his secure cell phone (and network) telling him that every 20 minutes someone on the plane is going to die unless $150 million is deposited in a certain bank account. Communicating with his boss on the ground, Marks is told that the bank account is in his name, and that he is now suspected of hijacking the flight.
Marks himself kills the first person, then two more die as Marks feverishly tries to figure out who the terrorist is out of the 150 occupants of the flight. But….the passengers suspect him based on news reports that everyone is watching. Gotta love modern flight technology.
Liam Neeson is terrific. “Non-Stop” is an intense, claustrophobic, thrilling, plane ride to find the true manipulator / killer. The rest of the cast, including Julianne Moore, take a back seat to Neeson.
