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.
BET.com - 9/10 by Clay CaneThe film may not be a critical favorite, but it will be an audience favorite. Run All Night is the first must-see action film of the year.
Consequence of Sound - 9/10 by Roy IvyRun All Night could stand to lose a few pounds of sub-plot and character padding. But it's good to have your favorite hamburger back -- and your dad will love it.
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.
Reeling Reviews - 9/10 by Laura CliffordDirector 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.
Deadspin - 9/10 by Tim Grierson"Run All Night" is the very embodiment of the rental recommendation: If you lower your expectations sufficiently, you'll be fine. But why lower them that much?
AV Club - 9/10 by Ignatiy VishnevetskyEven though he never gets a grip on the over-complicated plot, the director hasn't lost his knack for those elemental qualities that make a good action flick.
Blu-ray.com - 9/10 by Brian OrndorfThe feature fails to ignite, with the actor and the movie revealing more of a limp than a full gallop, while Collet-Serra goes cross-eyed trying to keep his action sequences in a straight line.
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.
Scroll.in - 9/10 by Nandini RamnathThe action is brutal and well executed, and tension is an end into itself in director Jaume Collet-Serra's hands. Run All Night stays true to its title. It's never short of breath but lacks breadth.
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.
amNewYork - 8/10 by Robert LevinAn entertaining NYC-set revenge picture in which grizzled Irishmen go at each other across the gritty streets that have inflamed the imaginations of filmmakers for decades.
