It's a fine movie: the acting is well-done, the stunts and effects are impressive, and the overall production value of the direction, sound, and cinematography are all of a high quality.
This film, however; is let down by its story line. It's interesting, but it's a little clich辿. And while I did find myself rooting for the protagonist; I wasn't emotionally invested in his plight, as is often the case with anti-hero protagonists: they're unlovable characters.
The action was always exciting, but that's where it peaked - the slower moments of dialogue and character development slowed the movie down too much. Too often; the biggest moments of character development came from inside jokes, unknown references, and brand-new characters being introduced.
I will say the audience was well-kept in the dark, and right up to the final seconds of the film; no one could've predicted exactly how it would end, despite the hints throughout the film. It made a better thriller than it did an action movie.
It did honestly take twenty minutes for anything interesting to actually happen in the beginning, but the final ten minutes made up for that, as they were powerful both emotionally, and dramatically. Just watched this with my movie theatre-working friend and his nephew. This was a very intense movie involving family members of either Liam Neeson or Ed Harris whose sons are involved in something that affects both of them. There's also a veteran police officer played by Vincent D'Onofrio that adds a little to the drama. It's possible something like this has been done before and better. Still, it was involving enough for us three that for the most part, we kept quiet as it was playing throughout. I mean, between the chases and the shootings and the other drama I don't want to mention, this was really a well-made movie. So on that note, Run All Night is highly recommend for anyone who likes this kind of material. With Neeson on fine form and an encouraging start, it
