Liam Neeson plays an ex-cop-turned-life-insurance-salesman, Michael, who is approached by a woman, Joanna (Vera Farmiga) on his everyday commute on the train. Joanna asks him to find a person on the train who doesn't belong for a large sum of money. Michael agrees, only to discover that the job isn't as simple as he had thought it would be. 

This isn't the first time director Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson are working together on an action thriller – it isn't even the second. They have made three action films, each as entertaining as the last – Run All Night (2015), Non-Stop (2014), Unknown (2011). This director-actor duo is definitely on track to deliver another entertaining success with The Commuter. 

Collet-Serra and Neeson aren't the only familiar duo on this film. Supporting actors Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson have appeared together in the popular horror film series, The Conjuring. Even Liam Neeson and Patrick Wilson have worked together before on The A-Team. The Commuter also stars Jurassic Park star, Sam Neill. Jonathan Banks, known for playing Mike on the acclaimed series Breaking Bad and the ongoing Better Call Saul, also has a role in this film. 

The Commuter is the type of action film that you can expect to enjoy without having to think too much. Liam Neeson has continuously proven himself to be great in action movies that are immensely popular with the audiences. Even to those who are strangers to the magic of Neeson, the trailer of holds enough mystery to make you want more.
