42 – The Commuter

Mike doesn’t believe that Liam Neeson is a normal person with real problems, and wants him to do proper acting again. Jose admires the film’s social conscience and visual flair. It’s The Commuter, a film that exceeds the low expectations set by its dull title. We discuss its portrayal of society through the characters on the train, how much we like its premise, and where it stands in the cheapish high-concept B-movie canon.

With José Arroyo of First Impressions and Michael Glass of Writing About Film.
