Run All Night

Run All Night


Rated R · 114 minutes · 2015

Action/Adventure, Crime drama, Drama, Suspense/Thriller
Explaining the convoluted backstory in this Liam Neeson actioner would take more space than I have here, so I'll just cut to the chase—his character, a broken-down hit man, goes on the run with his estranged, upright son (Joel Kinnaman) to save the young man from a ruthless mob boss (Ed Harris). Unfortunately, the convoluted backstory is the only thing that makes this worth seeing: the mobster and the hit man are old friends, and the hit man was forced to kill the mobster's son to save his own boy's life. Why doesn't the mobster just kill the hit man instead of chasing after the son, who he knows is innocent? Well, I told you it was convoluted. Jaume Collet-Serra directed a cast that includes Vincent D'Onofrio and Bruce McGill, the latter of whom is squandered as a thug with almost no dialogue.
