The director of Unknown (Jaume Collet-Serra) bring us another Liam Neeson action movie since the actor has reinvented his career with the Taken franchise. The film stars Neeson, Julianne Moore (Boogie Nights), Scoot McNairy (Argo), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Corey Stoll (House of Cards), Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire), Jason Butler Harner (Changeling), and Nate Parker (The Great Debaters).
Bill Marks (Neeson) is a former cop who, after dealing with his daughter’s death by drinking, is now an air marshal. While on a flight from London to New York, Marks gets a text telling him that unless $150 million is deposited to an off-shore account within 20 minutes someone will die. He tries to tell the other air marshal, Hammond, but Hammond doesn’t believe him.
