During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages threatening to kill a passenger on the plane every 20 minutes unless Bill instructs the airline to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes.

Although Bill explains the situation to the pilot, he doesn’t believe the threat until one of the passengers is mysteriously killed. When the account number given to Bill to transfer the money to is in his name, Bill believes he’s being set up, and when he finds a bomb on the plane, he becomes the main suspect.

While the rest of the plane tunes into the news for more updates, it is reported that Bill is hijacking the plane. In a deadly face off with the fighter squad, Bill tries to protect himself along with the rest of the passengers on the plane.

  • 5 stars "This is one of my favorites in the past few years. Good acting goes a long way and Liam rarely disappoints. Every time I see it on TV now I have to watch it again. From beginning to end it is rock solid entertainment."
  • 3 stars "Meh. To be fair, I'm not really into Liam Neeson action movies. If you are, you would probably like it."
  • 2 stars "A totally idiotic thriller."
