  • Non-Stop 2014

    "I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career."

    This quote from Taken could easily apply to Non-Stop. Regardless, the film is fun for what it is. If you enjoyed Executive Decisions or Passenger 57, then you will find this film to be a decent way to pass the time.

    Sample joke#2: “I’ve never missed a meal” –Blubberella. This is funny guessed it, she is fat.

    Throw in Uwe Boll playing Hitler, and Brendan Flecther “acting black” in a few scenes,…
