Liam Neeson continues on his way to becoming an ass-kicking granddad in the Harrison Ford mould with this action thriller set on an international flight from New York to London. He plays Bill Marks, a no-nonsense air marshal who receives a series of text messages from an anonymous source. He is informed that until the airline pays $150 million dollars into an offshore account, a passenger will be killed every 20 minutes. Bill is confused as to how the perpetrator could achieve this while being surrounded by people, but when things start to go wrong he realises the threat is serious. An investigation by the officials on the ground leads to the discovery that the account is in Bill's name, and despite his protests they turn against him. He must try to save the passengers and prove that he is not a hijacker.
