Storyline Heading
Michael, an insurance salesman, whose daily commute home quickly becomes anything but routine. After being confronted by a mysterious stranger, Michael is blackmailed into finding the identity of a passenger on his train before the last stop. As he works against the clock to solve the puzzle, Michael is unwittingly caught up in a criminal conspiracy that carries life and death stakes for himself and his fellow passengers.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - This is another Liam Neeson action thriller, but it's a bit of a slower burn than most before the mayhem takes over. This is a Neeson show through and through, with familiar faces such as Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Sam Neill, and Elizabeth McGovern only turning up in brief roles. Language and violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average I suppose it's fair to say that if you enjoyed the other Liam Neeson Action Hero First Quarter Movies, this one will pass muster. For me, it's too idiotic to be easily digested but I didn't hate it the way I often do January movies. And that's the nicest thing I can say about it.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Like nearly every entry, this new one is worth seeing for the unfussy determination of Neeson, a couple of impressively choreographed action sequences...and an intriguing premise that the filmmakers never manage to fully exploit. By "worth seeing," I don't necessarily mean "rush to the nearest theater, forsaking all else," but rather, "if this comes on TV, you'll probably watch the whole thing...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 90 moviegoers:
TEENS: These are decent reviews from three of the five males and one of the two females. The remaining reviews are mediocre.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The two males loved "The Commuter" as did one of the two females. The other females felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
ADULTS: The male and female reviews are very similar. About 50% of the males and 62% of the females LOVED "THE COMMUTER." Another 15% to 20% enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, 30% of the males and nearly 20% of the females rated it just "average."
