‘Run All Night’: Neeson & Harris Bring Classic Theatrics to Modern Action Run All Night reunites Liam Neeson with his Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra for another high-concept action film – this time set in the urban jungle of NYC, during one incredibly long chase, over one incredibly violent night. Neeson plays ex-hit man Jimmy Conlon, who spends his days under the wing of his (literal) partner in crime, Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), getting drunk and trying to forget sins of the past.

Film Review: Run All Night

Latino Review - Fri, 2015-03-13 09:42

Film Review: Run All Night The gritty Liam Neeson-as-action-star renaissance continues. For his third film in a row, director Jaume Collet-Serra teams with Neeson in an action movie that, for all intents and purposes, positions the septuagenarian as a no-nonsense, down-on-his-luck guy hoping for redemption. Following the breakout success of Taken everybody seemed to want to jump on the Neeson train—with Serra desperately trying to be the one trying to drive it—but at this point nothing seems build on that initial Taken-led spark.

The layperson may think that all the films in the “Liam Neeson Kills a Bunch of People” genre are the same, but no; for example, if the movie in question has both the word “taken” and a number in the title, steer clear. More seasoned watchers of the “Liam Neeson Kills a Bunch of People” movies know that some of the best ones are directed by Catalan filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, previously responsible for such trashy delights as “Liam Neeson Kills a Bunch of People on an Airplane” (aka “Non-Stop”) and “Liam Neeson Kills a Bunch o

Neeson, Harris And Kinnaman RUN ALL NIGHT In New Trailer It's getting to the point that you can't even tell what Liam Neeson movie you're talking about from the still images any more. A glower, a gun and a military style fatigue jacket? That could be ... well, that could be a LOT of titles. And here's another one to add to the list with the trailer releasing for the Jaume Collet-Serra directed hitman thriller Run All Night. Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days.

First images from Jaume Collet-Serra's Run All Night starring Liam Neeson The first trailer for RUN ALL NIGHT should be released sometime this week, but until then these first images from the mob thriller will have to do. RUN ALL NIGHT marks the third time Liam Neeson has worked with director Jaume Collet-Serra (UNKNOWN and NON-STOP) and the film also stars Ed Harris, Joel Kinnaman, Vincent D'Onofrio, Common, Holt McCallany and Beau Knapp. Take a look: Official synopsis:...

Non-Stop
It’s looking like another somewhat dreary week in terms of the quality of new releases, as we have two more action films that are a little lacking in the plot development department. So, buckle your seatbelts (that joke will be funnier later when you see what movies came out today, I promise), and let’s get to it.

Akira
Warner Bros.' attempts to produce a live-action version of the classic anime Akira have so far amounted to a giant boondoggle, with a lot of fan angst and one jilted director (Allen Hughes) to show for it. Jaume Collet-Serra has had his own bumpy road with the project, with rumored budgetary concerns scotching one early attempt, but he re-entered negotiations with the studio last fall, and it sounds like things are finally on track.
