    Anyone gonna go see this? Reviews have been pretty average. Despite Liam Neeson's new found action hero persona, most of his action movies haven't been very good.

    It made $30 million this weekend.

    I thought it looked good but it wasn't something I had to run out to see.

    I love Liam Neeson, but this one looked pretty dreadful in the ads. Has anyone here seen it? I'd be interested to hear what people thought.

    The Blu-ray cover will now say Acadamy Award nominee Liam Neeson, Golden Globe winner Julianne Moore, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o. :D

    Passable action with none of the way over the top stuff except the Woo inspired gun floating into the hand at the end. The big twist, well it is the same villain that has been used over and over again during the past 10 years.

    I enjoyed it. Nothing really special about it, but it was worth the price of admission.

    Mostly enjoyable. Neither great nor terrible. It felt like someone dusted off an old 90s action movie script and tried updating it with post 911 details. I'd call it a rental.

    On a scale of 1 to Ireland, how angry was Liam Neeson in this movie?

    About 4 and a half. But still (mild spoiler below)






    ......he should've barked at Becca (the young kid) at the climax: ''We don't have TIME for this crap! Sit down and shut up!!'' It would've made for a nice AIRPLANE-style moment...

    I don't know what the anger scale is but it was the character's anger probably about the death of his young daughter which made him the model of the last man you would want with a gun and a badge. And when the unthinkable happen on his watch his version of command presence to control the aircrew and passengers looked like anger which played into the terrorist plans.

    There was no "I will find you and I will kill you" that I remember
