Liam Neeson has been kicking ass on the regular since his unexpected turn towards action with 2008’s Taken, and in the ten years since he’s done some of his best B-movie thrillers with The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra. The latest collab from the duo, The Commuter, arrived in theaters earlier this year and with the Blu-ray release around the corner, we’ve got an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip taking a look at the art of ass-kicking the Liam Neeson way.
This time around Neeson stars as insurance salesman, Michael, who finds himself embroiled in a criminal conspiracy when his daily commute takes an unexpected turn when he’s by a mysterious stranger (Vera Farmiga) and finds himself in the midst of a conspiracy. The Commuter marks the fourth collab between Neeson and Collet-Serra, who previously teamed for the action thrillers Unknown (2011), Non-Stop (2014), and Run All Night (2015).
The Commuter is available now on Digital and arrives on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD on April 17th. Get a sneak peek at the action in our exclusive clip below.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Commuter:
In this action-packed thriller, Liam Neeson plays an insurance salesman, Michael, on his daily commute home, which quickly becomes anything but routine. After being contacted by a mysterious stranger, Michael is forced to uncover the identity of a hidden passenger on his train before the last stop. As he works against the clock to solve the puzzle, he realizes a deadly plan is unfolding and is unwittingly caught up in a criminal conspiracy. One that carries life and death stakes, for himself and his fellow passengers.
