The Commuter is what you would get if for some strange reason, you brought together Takens protagonist into a world a train, in this case rather reminiscent of Murder on the Orient Express. Michael Maccauley (Liam Neeson) is an ex-cop no surprises there and he has a set of very specific skills again, but this time, they are more people-oriented. ...Read full review
