Non-Stop (2014)

Director: Jaume Collet-Serra. Cast: Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery, Corey Stoll, Lupita Nyong'o. 106 min. Rated PG-13. UK/France/USA. Action/Mystery/Thriller.

Federal Marshall discovers a terror threat on a passenger plane, but is simultaneously framed by the terrorist, and becomes the main terror suspect by both the passengers and people on the ground. This is a taut thriller with multiple up-and-coming actors (Mary from "Downton Abbey", Rep. Peter Russo from "House of Cards", and Nyong'o oblivious to her looming Oscar success) in supporting roles, and Neeson in another action role that used to go to Bruce Willis - not to say he doesn't fit the part. But with such tight pacing and story-telling, I had expected a much less confusing ending.
