Air marshals in the United States Federal Air Marshal Service must be sworn initially between the ages of 21 and 37. At the time of the film's release, Liam Neeson was 61 years old. Also, he says he was a cop for 25 years, which would make it impossible for him to be an air marshal regardless of Neeson's actual age. See more »

Yeah. I know, I'm sorry. No, no, you can trust me. I'm fine.

I never was a huge fan of Liam Neeson's action flicks, but I went to see this because of the good reviews. This movie is a very suspenseful and a great "Whodunnit" movie. It it's share of action scenes, but it never went too over the top. Even if you don't like Liam Neeson, this movie is worth seeing and is a guaranteed good time. Lot's of twists and suspicious characters leave you guessing and most likely wrong. Lot's of on the edge-of- your-seat scenes because of how well it was made and has a silent and lonely feel to it which helps you understand everything going on. Overall, this movie is a great thriller without being packed full of action.
