The Commuter ★★★½

Almost the mirror version of Good Time except Liam Neeson is the least convincing liar ever. The Die Hard archetypal everyman this is based on is just clever enough to seem both relatable and smart, but here he’s such an unsubtle manic nut job that only his class/race/gender gets him as far as he does without being forcibly thrown from a train. Would be more interesting without the hostage situation, with only his briefly lost financial success determining where morality falls.
