The movie may not be the second coming of "Heat" but it’s good enough to turn up the temperature to “warm.”

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Jaume Collet-Serra
Cast: Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Sam Neill, Elizabeth McGovern, Jonathan Banks

"The Commuter" delivers exactly what’s advertised – a turn-off-the-brain action film starring Liam Neeson that doesn’t moralize or overplay its hand.

A regurgitated product, familiar bits and pieces of teen-friendly “scary” stuff that mimics horror in disappointingly superficial ways.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Javier Fuentes-Leon
Cast: Salvador del Solar, Lucho Caceres, Vanessa Saba, Angie Cepeda

The film’s nihilistic last act will leave some viewers cold but, from a pure storytelling perspective, the movie engages throughout.

Shows how the most devastating damage caused by terrorists sometimes isn’t to those who die; it’s to those who remain alive.

Run Time: 1:46
U.S. Release Date: 2017-12-29
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Paul McGuigan
Cast: Jamie Bell, Annette Bening, Julie Walters, Vanessa Redgrave, Stephen Graham, Leanne Best, James Bloor

Despite some great acting, this is a largely unpleasant viewing experience and the downbeat tone isn’t helped by a narrative that flits back and forth in time without rhyme or reason.

It’s a serviceable thriller at best although Christopher Plummer’s late-to-the-party performance is worthy of praise.

It starts slowly but eventually develops into something that is in equal parts fascinating and disturbing.
