Our Score
Liam Neeson stars in this edgy thriller as a retired hitman who has one night to save his son from being killed by his former boss. Those expecting another Taken clone will be surprised to see a somewhat different twist on the "geriaction" formula. Some well-crafted action keeps the pace fast and the stakes high, while an interesting visual style underlines the plot's claustrophobic, chase-movie feel. Neeson again plays an indefatigable one-man army, but between the brawling he brings a sense of regret to his world-weary warrior. The cast is also dense with strong character actors for him to spar with, including Ed Harris's unusually sympathetic villain and Vincent D'Onofrio as the detective on their tail. While it may not stray too far from familiar territory, Run All Night is a fast and entertaining example of just why its star's action rebirth has been so successful.


A hitman working for a longtime friend who has become head of a crime syndicate becomes disillusioned with his life and haunted by his past misdeeds. He is forced to turn against the syndicate and place himself in the firing line when he learns a hit has been ordered on his own estranged son. Action thriller, starring Liam Neeson and Ed Harris.
