Ever experienced a crime in an airplane? Probably not, but for those who like a movie with a rather ridiculous plot, but good action sequences, Non-stop, starring Liam Neeson, may fit the bill.

Well, the movie Non-stop is a story about an alcoholic U.S. Federal Air Marshal, Bill Marks, racing to stop the villain who has framed him as a hijacker during a non-stop flight to New York to London.

The action starts when Bill Marks boards the air plane. It is common sense that a signal is not available for your phone, however on Bill Marks and his partner Tom Bowen have signal.

Later, as the plane hits cruising altitude, Mark receives a mysterious text message saying that a passenger on the flight will be killed every 20 minutes unless $150 million is deposited in a bank account.

But the harder he works to find a suspect, the more he puts himself to a situation where he is framed as a criminal taking hostages. Later on, they realize that the bank account for the $150 million is in Bill Marks’ name, the FAA revokes his marshal status and people suspect him as a hijacker. As people are frightened, they turn their backs on Marks.

Finally Marks explains the situation to people and persuades them that he is not the criminal but a victim and protects the passengers from the bomb that he has found in the airplane.

“Non-Stop” is recommend for those who enjoy action, mystery, and thriller genres of movies. This movie is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, some language, sensuality and drug references.

In terms of plot “Non-Stop” doesn’t make any sense. As far as the reasoning to the result of the crimes are concerned, but the movie itself is fine concerning Liam Neeson’s surprising action scenes and acting as an older action hero, which is always rewarding theoretically than cinematically.
