Trailer - 'The Commuter'
It looks like The Commuter will be the yearly dose of Liam Neeson action-thriller for 2018. Jaume Collet-Serra is directing, so at least we know it's in competent hands (this director has worked with Liam Neeson on three previous occasions with mixed-to-positive results). Without further ado, let's take a look at the trailer.
You know, this looks like a solid time-waster, even if it looks completely unoriginal. Honestly, the first two movies I thought of when watching the trailer were Source Code and Non-stop, and I honestly think that's how this movie is going to turn out. That's not bad company to be in, but I can't shake the feeling that this just doesn't seem unique at all. This is also releasing in January, which tends to be a bit of a dumping ground for movies that aren't deemed worthy for prime spots in the year, but we'll see.
The Commuter arrives in theaters on January 12th, 2018.
