Michael MacCauley, a former police officer and now a hard-working life-insurance salesman and a caring family man, has been taking the commuter rail to New York for the past ten years. But, things will take an unexpected turn when, on one of his daily journeys, the cryptic passenger, Joanna, makes Michael a generous and tempting offer to locate a single commuter or face grave consequences. Is this a sick joke, or is this, indeed, a dangerous situation? Now, as Michael races against the clock to solve this wicked conundrum, everyone aboard is a suspect, in a deal that there is more than meets the eye. Can he decide in time who is the one?Written by
The sixteen personalities that Joanna refers to when she strikes up the initial conversation on the train are the Myers Briggs types. See more »
When the emergency brake on a train is pulled, it does not require any action from the engineer to stop the train. The system will force the train to stop (quite quickly, in fact) and will require human intervention only to reset the system to get the train moving again.
However, it did appear that there was an explosion when the emergency brake was pulled indicating it may have been sabotaged. If the emergency brakes had indeed failed to activate, the engineer would be needed to stop the train. See more »

Nothing new from Neeson, in a good way (and a bad way).
If you've seen one Neeson film, you've probably seen them all. Despite having already mastered the art of playing the grizzled, independant tough-guy, Neeson is back with The Commuter, in which he plays an unsuspecting ... well ... commuter, who is drawn into a criminal conspiracy which could kill everyone on-board.
It's a familiar sounding plot, but it's one that Neeson excels in, in fact, he may be too good at it by now. With all that said, The Commuter, much like Taken, Taken 2, Taken 3, Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones, Run All Night and Schindlers List, is another fun Neeson film which you'll probably enjoy much more than you'd be willing to admit.
