Reviews: Run All Night (2015)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Dragan Antulov @ FAK [Croatian]
  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Liam Neeson y Jaume Collet-Serra cierran su trilogía de acción con una película moderadamente amena y completamente intrascendente, como sus hermanas previas. Un thriller correcto y poco más, sin ninguna originalidad y con una puesta en escena briosa pero vacía.
  • Sean Axmaker @ Parallax View
    • Excerpt: There’s no superheroics or spectacular Die Hard-style stunts here. It’s all handguns and car chases and blood and broken glass on the urban mean streets at night, and Collet-Serra creates a very turbulent, unstable ordeal.
  • Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
    • Excerpt: familiar cocktail of second generation blue collar honor struggling to overcome the stagnant moral nadir of organized crime sleaze gets streamlined into a by-the-numbers action flick that only manages to feel as stale is it is unbelievable, like nuggets of Scorsese whirled through a Luc Besson meat grinder.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: On my way to the screening of “Run All Night,” I realized that this will be the third Liam Neeson ass-kicking film in the last three months. Considering “The Walk Among the Tombstones” was too dour for my tastes and “Taken 3” abandoned the best parts of the formula, this might actually be my favorite of this recent run.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Director Jaume Collet-Serra gets fine work in his handful of scenes featuring Neeson and Harris and as the worn down police detective who’s been on Jimmy’s trail for over a decade, Vincent D’Onofrio exudes good old-fashioned rumpled New Yawk tenacity.
  • Carlos del Río @ El rincón de Carlos del Río [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: La trama da tantas vueltas que resulta cansina.
  • Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Even though the scenario features messy emotions and uneasy relationships, the movie finds the simplest, most obvious solutions…
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Gritty, fast-paced – and quickly forgettable…
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Too long and too same-old, and even Liam Neeson’s effortless tough-guy charm can only carry this familiar-feeling film so far.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: It has been over a month since the last one – time to watch Liam Neeson practice his unique set of skills again
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: As these things go, “Run All Night” is solid but unexceptional. The gimmick of seeing Liam Neeson as a late-blooming action star has been fun, but he might need a repose once the bloom is off the rose.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • Glenn Lovell @ CinemaDope.com
    • Excerpt: Exhausting, relentless … Neeson and Collet-Serra’s third pairing is by far their best … Fuses vertiginous CG effects with some of the most elaborate action scenes since Michael Mann’s ‘Heat.’
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Liam Neeson continues to prove that his late-career action renaissance is a good choice in the generic, but perfectly serviceable “Run All Night.”
  • [New – 10/1/15] | Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: By this point, you know what you’re getting into with these things, and this one ranks among the star’s better recent efforts.
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: O que é, é uma amálgama de ideias pré-concebidas sobre assassinos e honra em sequência. A estrutura é sólida, mas continua a estar sobrecarregada de ideias.
