The Commuter (2018)


An Insurance Salesman/Ex-Cop is caught up in a criminal conspiracy during his daily commute home. (IMDb)
The bulk of this is a generic (*cough*Non-Stop*cough*), lazily-written (how do these villains know everything, and what’s their motivation?) thriller (more on-screen Farmiga would’ve helped-she was an enigmatic delight in her early scene), but the production value is notably above average (the opening credits sequence was a brilliant bit of editing showing the “same but different” angle of the daily commute; the cinematography is also quite slick throughout-see the swirling guitar fight).
6.5/10 (Alright)
