The movie will enthrall children while providing enough sophisticated tidbits to keep adults engaged.
"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.
"The Post" offers a stirring reminder of the importance of unsung heroes in protecting the American way of life.

A regurgitated product, familiar bits and pieces of teen-friendly “scary” stuff that mimics horror in disappointingly superficial ways.
Shows how the most devastating damage caused by terrorists sometimes isn’t to those who die; it’s to those who remain alive.
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.
The movie is all about the nonstop dialogue but, as a result of the way the words flow, they function as momentum builders.
The central character is as small figuratively as he is literally, and that limits the movie’s capacity to enthrall and engage.
