Tom Beasley sits down with action man Liam Neeson ahead of the release of The Commuter in UK cinemas…
Liam Neeson has become known over the last decade as one of Hollywood’s most reliable action leads, whether he’s cracking human skulls or punching a wolf in the face. His latest movie, The Commuter marks his fourth collaboration with Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed Neeson for Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night.
Neeson plays the eponymous train traveller, who is visited on the day of his sacking by a new passenger, who poses an unusual challenge. There is someone on board the train who doesn’t belong there and Neeson must identify them. If he does so successfully, there’s a hefty financial reward, but if he doesn’t, there are consequences for him and everyone he loves.
