Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Run All Night.
Film Journal International - 10/10 by Daniel Eagan[Liam Neeson and Ed Harris'] few scenes together are surrounded by clumsy plot twists, with an excess of wheel spinning and other delaying tactics.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Richard RoeperEven 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.
Movie Chambers - 9/10 by Paul Chambers"Run All Night" is classic film noir. The anti-hero is a tipsy killer with a few redeeming qualities. Neeson plays the role with the same gusto that's lifted his other action films from the dismal to the watchable.
Tolucan Times - 9/10 by Tony MedleyWell directed with nonstop action highlighted by tension-enhancing music, exceptional cinematography, and good dialogue. This is a chase film that should have the entire audience shaking in its boots throughout.
The Film Stage - 8/10 by Jared MobarakFor those who get pumped up at the thought of high-speed car chases and brutal hand-to-hand combat, rest assured Collet-Serra is bringing the goods.
L.A. Biz - 8/10 by Annlee EllingsonThat the two fathers are tortured by their shared past ... add[s] a layer of gravity to otherwise stock action fare.
Forbes - 8/10 by Mark Hughes[A]n overall well-made little action-oriented crime story with some interesting characters, entertaining action, and good performances from its two big leads.
Madison Movie - 8/10 by Rob ThomasAt this point, the question is not whether Liam Neeson will kick ass, but what sort of ass he will kick.
MediaMikes - 8/10 by Michael A. SmithGorgeously filmed (director Collet-Serra and cinematographer Martin Rhue give New York City its own starring role in the film) and strongly acted
NY1-TV - 8/10 by Neil RosenThe movie is predictable and obvious, and it also feels a bit long, but who cares? It is a fun action flick with Neeson, doing what he does best these days - yielding satisfying results.
Sensacine - 8/10 by Suso AiraIt is a classic worthy of applause. [full review in Spanish]
Dark Horizons - 8/10 by Josh HyltonRun All Night could be the worst one yet, as it simply goes through the motions without doing much of anything particularly interesting.
