Critic Reviews for Run All Night

via Rotten Tomatoes

An admirable cat-and-mouse tale that puts forth a lot of clichés and executes them with B-movie intensity.

Mostly thanks to its stars, it is a perfectly acceptable, if unnecessary, addition to the angry middle-aged guy action-movie genre.

Run All Night isn’t dull. The pace is breakneck, and necks get broken. But the violence is relentless, ugly, unredeemed by any real humanity.

Collet-Serra (Non-Stop and Unknown), lavishes the story with whooshing aerial cameras and shadowy rat-warren interiors.

The movie is the cinematic equivalent of junk food. It satisfies the craving for the sensation of nihilism, without its substance.

Directed, frantically, by Jaume Collet-Serra, written by Brad Ingelsby, “Run All Night” promises a sprint punctuated by a lot of gunfire, and bleeding, and bodies. Mission accomplished.

It’s winter also known as time for a Liam Neeson “Taken” knockoff.

The film works best as a straight character drama as opposed to the elaborate action thriller that it arguably doesn’t want to be.

Well 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.

… Changes the formula enough to be Neeson’s best actioner since “Taken.”

The 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.

“Run All Night” is proof that quality action films don’t really need to reinvent the wheel each time out as long as they make it spin this smoothly.
