Run All Night Movie Review

Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective (D’Onofrio) who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years. Lately, it seems Jimmy’s only solace can be found at the bottom of a whiskey glass. But when Jimmy’s estranged son, Mike (Kinnaman), becomes a target, Jimmy must make a choice between the crime family he chose and the real family he abandoned long ago. With Mike on the run, Jimmy’s only penance for his past mistakes may be to keep his son from the same fate Jimmy is certain he’ll face himself… at the wrong end of a gun. Now, with nowhere safe to turn, Jimmy just has one night to figure out exactly where his loyalties lie and to see if he can finally make things right.

Watched the film - Run All Night with Ting Feng yesterday night! Personally, the show was watchable with a decent plot though it could have been more refined. 

Initially, the story started off slow with dialogues and its historical background which appear quite confusing and dull. However, as the story continue on, I got to piece up the mystery with its flash backs and truth from the characters. From there, its build up and climax to its plot started to spice up this film. 

Honestly, I was touched by Jimmy Conlon (Neeson) gesture for protecting his son Mike Conlon (Joel Kinnaman) despite his previous mistakes. Through the adventurous journey with him, He kept reminded him not to kill anyone and let him finish the job.  Even till his last breath, He still persevere to save his child. 

A good suspenseful film to catch!
