Straight up - if you've enjoyed Liam Neeson films in the past, chances are you're going to also like Run All Night. It keeps the formula pretty much similar (though I do like Neeson playing more of a bad guy than the good guy for once) to his previous movies. Lots of action, some tense moments, growling lines of dialogue - Common is excellent as the assassin and Joel Kinnaman (who is often overlooked) is great as Neeson's estranged son. Overall, not groundbreaking but good for what it is.

Neeson continues his streak of tough guy heroics in 'Run All Night'. This outing is more satisfying than most of his previous, because of the attention to characters and relationships. This is a serious crime drama with more grounded action. Thrilling chases and tense standoffs punctuate a solid story about redemption. Neeson plays a sympathetic criminal here. He's done much wrong to his family, as well as having been a murderer. In one night he hopes to mend relations with his son and atone for his many crimes. The emotional scenes are earned though the feeling of shared history between all the characters. More substance to be had than the usual offering. Good watch.

"Wherever we're going, when we cross that line, we're going together. Me and you. "
I'm starting to think that Liam Neeson really has a drinking problem, because this is another movie with him as an ex-alcoholic or alcoholic. In "Non-stop" and "A Walk Among the Tombstones" he could shake off the addiction. In "Run all night" he's trying to suppress his sorrow by constantly consuming liquor. Neeson prefers the action genre nowadays apparently. After more serious work in the past such as "Schindler's List", "Nell", "K19", "Gangs of New York" and "Kinsey", he's focusing on action. Sadly enough he got stuck in the same mould. It's clear that the audience appreciates this kind of movies with Neeson, because last year the third part of "Taken" has been released . Neeson as the bitter, …

Yes I know this review is late but March has been a slow month for me with movies not playing at my location theater, it's a pain in the ass sometimes but hey I finally got a chance to watch it and this is what I have to say about.
The story to Run All Night is about a prolific and aging hitman, Jimmy Conlon, once known as The Gravedigger, has fallen on hard times. With the sins of his past catching up, he finds out his estranged son has been targeted by his former mob boss and must now choose between the crime family he grew up with or the family he left behind.
I think I was like everybody else when I sawed the trailer to Run All Night thinking it was another copy cat of Taken with Liam Neeson playing the same character. With all these movie with Liam Neeson playing pretty much …

Run 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 …
