Up in the air...

Liam Neeson’s reign as throat-puncher-in-chief continues with this entertaining leave-your-brain-at-the-door thriller. He plays an air marshal who must battle both the bottle and a mystery baddie who’s texting him threats that someone on his plane will die every 20 minutes unless he receives one beeelion dollars… or something.

Who cares about the plot – the points here are momentum, suspense, Neeson’s charisma and plentiful popcorn consumption, all of which are nailed. Sadly, a late twist takes things across the line from fun absurdity into absurd absurdity, but the surprisingly overqualified cast keep things airborne.
