Storyline: Now a hard-working life insurance salesman and a caring family man, the former police officer, Michael MacCauley, has taken the commuter rail to New York for the past ten years. But, unexpectedly, things will take a turn for the worse, when on one of his daily journeys, the cryptic passenger, Joanna, makes Michael a generous and tempting offer to locate a single commuter or face grave consequences. Is this a sick joke, or is this indeed a serious situation? As Michael races against the clock to solve this wicked conundrum, everyone aboard is a suspect, in a deal where there’s definitely more than meets the eye. Can he decide in time who’s the one?
In THE COMMUTER, Michael MacCauley (Liam Neeson) has worked as an insurance salesman for 10 years, riding the train in and out of New York each day, on both good days and bad. Then he loses his job, just when he needs to pay for his son’s college tuition. On the train home, a woman he doesn’t know (Vera Farmiga) asks MacCauley whether, in exchange for $100,000, he’d be willing to find a single passenger, one who doesn’t belong, and plant a tracer on the passenger’s bag. MacCauley soon learns that his wife and son will be in danger if he doesn’t take the offer and follow the rules. So he goes about trying to find the unknown passenger, though each time he comes close, the game takes a new turn. When the train begins to hurtle out of control, headed for derailment, he realizes just how high the stakes really are — and how much power the forces of evil have. Can MacCauley solve the puzzle before it’s too late?
