The 62 years old is back and this time he is going after those who wants to kill his son. Jimmy(Liam Neeson), an all timer hit-man now turns his target to the very mob that we worked for. Reason being, his son murdered Shawn Maguire’s son. Shawn is Jimmy’s best friend and mob boss.
Mobster and hit man Jimmy Conlon has one night to figure out where his loyalties lie: with his estranged son, Mike, whose life is in danger, or his longtime best friend, mob boss Shawn Maguire, who wants Mike to pay for the death of his own son.
It get interesting when the Jimmy stood up to protect his son as he doesn’t want he son to be a murderer like him. To protect this idea that he has safe his son by killing everyone who he thinks would kill his son.
Liam Neeson still is the same as in Taken. He is more becoming like Sylvester Stallone, in the same movie concept. But I have to give credit on the positioning of Liam in this movie. It wasn’t like Non-Stop where he was the center of everything. Director, Jaume Collet-Serra has matured in this part. This movie really milked out the Liam out of him.
As the flow of the movie, it does slightly reminds me of the some old classic mob movie. Like Stallone’s Bullet To The Head but better arranged. Better dialogues too.
Considerating is like a Taken kinda movie, Run All Night had a unique theme and concept which we liked. The old man returns to safe his son’s life who was an a**. A twist of gangster wasted style.
