Run All Night (2015) movie review

Marathon mission to save families

Since the success of the action movie Taken (2008), Liam Neeson has become an action star at a young age. He appears to be the successor to Charles Bronson in the 1980s.

The performance of Liam Neeson, who has previously had experience in many dramatic films, never disappoints when it comes to the action genre. As shown in this movie.

Liam Neeson and Jaume Collet-Serra have always brought up interesting themes at the core of the story in the previous two films. Unknown (2011) causes the main character to lose his memory, so the mysterious nuance is dense. While Non-Stop (2014) presents non-stop action on an airplane that is in the air.

And in this 1 hour 54 minute film, they highlight the dramatic aspect with their approach to family as an emotional trigger.

The film opens with the story of the two sons of a mafia boss that is taken as the emotional foundation of the entire storyline. Michael tries to stay away from the mafia world, while Danny wants to get deeper into his father’s dirty business.

Their steps meet in an uncomfortable situation. Michael, who witnesses Danny’s murder, leaves him hunted by the son of the mafia.

And when Danny is murdered, Michael and Jimmy are hunted down by Shawn and his henchmen. As a result, Jimmy has to go on a mission to run an all-night marathon to protect his family from being chased by Shawn.

Jimmy lives alone because Michael refuses to meet his family. Michael hated his father’s assassin job for Shawn. And Jimmy’s life wasn’t any better either.

Review Run all night

He always spends his time and money getting drunk. In fact, all of this he does to escape anxiety about his actions as an assassin in the past.

Although no longer active as an assassin, Shawn still ensures Jimmy’s life. And when Michael is pursued by Danny, who is later killed by Jimmy, is Jimmy considered ungrateful to Shawn? Does breast milk come in with tube water?

Of course not! Jimmy finds Danny guilty for committing the murders and then tracks down Michael to erase his tracks.

And when Jimmy killed Danny, Danny was also pointing a gun at Michael. A father’s instinct is sure to prioritize the safety of a child at stake. After all, Jimmy apologized to Shawn and admitted his mistake. In fact, he was willing to trade himself for Michael. However, as a father who has just lost his only child, Shawn is still filled with anger and a desire for revenge.

This is where Brad Ingelsby’s wisdom as a playwright comes into play. At the beginning of the film, we are told the story of two mafia children, by the middle of the film, the feud between the two fathers becomes the emotional core of the story. The best scene in this movie is not the action scene but the scene where Jimmy and Shawn meet at the restaurant.

Liam Neeson and Ed Harris show off their acting strengths as mature senior actors. They are two different types of fathers in nature and destiny.

Jimmy has a bad life and is shunned by his children, who are now away from the criminal world, while Shawn is rich and famous as a mafia leader but has children he wants to aim for. criminal world.

These two fathers, both defending their sons. Although Shawn knew Danny was the perpetrator of the crime in this case, the father-son relationship never faded.

The same goes for Jimmy, who will do his best to protect his innocent son. One thing we should know, Shawn and Jimmy are teammates.

But when it comes to matters of life, the bond of friendship is no stronger than that of family. Nothing can stop each of them from finishing the other.

The fire of vengeance in Shawn’s eyes is successfully portrayed by Ed Harris and the tough heart of a father is also beautifully portrayed by Liam Neeson.

Action scene without CHOLD

Usually in this modern day with advanced CGI technology, most movies use CGI to refine each scene to make it more beautiful. Action movies are no exception. Car chases and gunfights often use visual effects to make the scene more thrilling.

Run all night movie

But not with this dark and dynamic cinematography. All the action scenes in this movie are completely the expertise of the stuntman, the production team in building the location and camera movements to be able to capture all these scenes well.

All of these action scenes are made fun of by Dirk Westervelt’s excellent editing. His hard work in the film industry later helped him take on the editing of future major films, which are Logan (2017), Deadpool 2 (2018) and Ford v Ferrari (2019).

Moving from one location to another in New York City was presented in such a neat and dynamic manner that it really impressed us.
