Hello and Welcome Reviewers!
Today I’m reviewing Run All Night.
Mobster and hit man Jimmy Conlon has one night to figure out where his loyalties lie: with his estranged son, Mike, whose life is in danger, or his longtime best friend, mob boss Shawn Maguire, who wants Mike to pay for the death of his own son. **
Liam Neeson is back with another action movie about saving his children. Run All Night brings together Ed Harris and Liam Neeson on the big screen for an action packed ride. This movie feels a little like Taken with some different elements to it. All fans of those kinds of movies should go and see it.
I give this movie a 5.2 out of 10.
This Run All Night review contains possible spoilers. You’ve been warned.
** Warning, Possible Spoilers!!!! **
- The action scenes were decent enough to watch for a while. Jimmy took on Shawn’s gang and it was entertain for the most part.
- Liam Neeson is still a passable action star. He brings some layers to this movie. He shows the audience the different demons that haunt his character throughout the movie. It was refreshing to see Jimmy’s personality on screen. He had a certain type of weakness that came from years of dirty work. Last but not least, the final rifle shot in this movie was superbly done.
Common seemed like a wasted piece in this entire story. He did a decent job in this movie but he barely served much of a purpose. Ultimately, he was the reason why Jimmy died but that shot was a sucker punch during the ending. Price was easily defeated while chasing after Jimmy’s son, Mike. For a master assassin he fell quickly in the woods.
Jimmy is a bad-ass killing machine and no one can stop him. He goes through a ton of bad guys and defeats them all. This is very tiring considering the age and physical shape of his character. He’s supposed to be this drunk that’s haunted by his past. There’s no way he would be able to get around NYC so easily and efficiently.
The NYC cops took a L in this movie. You’re telling me that Jimmy could murder a few cops and still be able to run around NYC without getting caught. The public transit system comes to a halt if someone shows any kind of creepy behavior. They should have caught Jimmy during the subway scene.
This movie felt too much like a Taken movie! (That is all…)
It would be a different movie if they made Shawn a stronger villain. He was fairly weak when going against Jimmy. It was kind of sad seeing them finally going head to head. The story could have put in a great battle between both characters. The results from that battle could be the reason why Jimmy died eventually.
