  • Summary: Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson), once known as “The Gravedigger,” has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective (Vincent D'Onofrio)Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson), once known as “The Gravedigger,” has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective (Vincent D'Onofrio) who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years. Lately, it seems Jimmy’s only solace can be found at the bottom of a whiskey glass. But when Jimmy’s estranged son, Mike (Joel Kinnaman), becomes a target, Jimmy must make a choice between the crime family he chose and the real family he abandoned long ago. With Mike on the run, Jimmy’s only penance for his past mistakes may be to keep his son from the same fate Jimmy is certain he’ll face himself. Now, with nowhere safe to turn, Jimmy just has one night to figure out exactly where his loyalties lie and to see if he can finally make things right. Expand

    Even though it feels as if we’ve seen this movie before, Run All Night is a stylish and kinetic thriller, with Neeson at his gritty, world-weary best, some of the coolest camera moves in recent memory and a Hall of Fame villain in the great Ed Harris.

    The trailers make Run All Night look like a fast-paced shoot-'em-up and, although those elements are present, this is a darker and grimmer experience.

    The movie, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Mr. Neeson in the efficient airborne thriller “Non-Stop,” has two saving graces: a tight script and terrific acting.

    This time around, in spotlighting Liam Neeson's fatigued charisma, Jaume Collet-Serra's formidable filmmaking chops have plateaued.

    There’s a lot going on in this movie. But all that texture turns out to be a virtue.

    Run All Night isn't dull. The pace is breakneck, and necks get broken. But the violence is relentless, ugly, unredeemed by any real humanity.

The story is fantastic, it is well written and acted brilliantly by Liam Neeson, Ed Harris, Joel Kinnaman and hell, even Common. The camera angles are TRIPPY, the most interesting cinematography I have seen in a movie. Overall, the sick action, great story, beautiful cinematography and the brilliant writing make for a darker, more psychologicaly handled action thriller. Way better than Tombstones. Expand

A good old-fashioned ganster shoot-em-up type movie with an interesting story, engaging characters, and great acting. The action was very realistic and believable to an extent. It was gritty and somewhat dark. Neeson is awesome as usual. Not much to complain about really. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend if you like a "realistic" action movie with good story elements. Expand

    Run All Night is the third collaboration between director Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson (the first two being Unknown and Non-Stop) andRun All Night is the third collaboration between director Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson (the first two being Unknown and Non-Stop) and this may be their strongest film yet. The movie has a fairly strong cast composed of Neeson, Ed Harris, Joel Kinnaman and several other strong actors in the supporting cast like Vincent D'Onofrio and Common. Run All Night is a action film that is as classic as they come. Neeson is a character you generally care about and he is vulnerable at points in the movie where in the last installments in the Taken series it seemed as if he was invincible. Ed Harris also has a strong performance in the film and its nice to see him as the evil one as it seems like he is normally a good guy in most cases. However, one of may problems with the film is that there are two many important players in the film. You get the Mafia, the police, and an assassin all at once and although that's pretty cool there are points where it seems like it too much. Still its well worth checking out and its a rare March theatre gem. If you are a fan of action movies this movie is a safe bet. Expand

It was ok, predictable because of the trailers, but still entertains.... Better than Taken 2 and 3. I wish Neeson gets a chance to work in a different kind of movie, so we dont get bored of his pain, worried, "im gonna kill you and I dont enjoy killing" face. Expand

This movie suffers from a complete lack of character development or background, poor scripting a honestly laughable direction, especially as far as the animated scene transitions are concerned. Liam Neeson plays what is essentially an even more two dimensional version of himself, with no noticeably great acting performances from elsewhere. long story short, this film really shouldn't have made the box office, and it makes me sad that so many far superior others could have taken its place if it wasn't for its starring actor. No, seriously, without Liam's name to this film I can practically guarantee it would have gotten nowhere. Expand
