After a thirty-six-hour journey, the long train stopped outside a little station, the name of which I could not read from our cattle-truck "coach".

Non-Stop (2014)

An air marshal springs into action during a transatlantic flight after receiving a series of text messages demanding $150 million into an off-shore account, or someone will die every 20 minutes.

An old-hat premise is turned into an above-average thriller by keeping the tension high throughout and upping the ante of the plot's possibilties to the edge of credibility.

Maltin**: "Follows a familiar textbook for this kind of thriller but delivers the goods and keeps you guessing right to the outlandish finale."

Miranda Kerr

Rogue One (2016)

The Rebel Alliance makes a risky move to steal the plans for the Death Star, setting up the epic saga to follow.

A Star Wars subplot expertly produced with all the usual ingredients and update deffects offers a lot of lively action, but doesn't offer much more than that.

Duel (1971)

A business commuter is pursued and terrorized by the malevolent driver of a massive tractor-trailer.

Steven Spielberg's feature debut is a highly cinematic and effective thriller with a truck substituting as the monster.

Halliwell**: "Tense, suspenseful drama that made Spielberg's name as a bright young director."

The Salvation (2014)

In 1870s America, a peaceful American settler kills his family's murderer which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader, but his cowardly fellow townspeople then betray him, forcing him to hunt down the outlaws alone.

A very traditional Western story is heightened by relentlessly taking the action to its extremes offering a great cast and quite beautiful, atmospheric cinematography.
