05 Jun Run All Night Review
Loyalty vs. Revenge
One day the gang members and evil enemies around the world may learn that Liam Neeson always does what it takes to protect his family. However, in the meantime his character, Jimmy Conlon, must keep his estranged son, Mike Conlon (Joel Kinnaman), safe from his mobster past in this week’s FridayFlix, Run All Night. One night, New York City limo driver Mike finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time when he witnesses a shooting. Ironically, he recognizes the shooter, forcing him to renew ties with the man he hates most: his father. Jimmy knows he is the only hope for Mike and his family to escape the wrath of the well-respected gangster, Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris). Loyalty is tested in all aspects of Jimmy’s life on one night and he must decide what’s most important to him before it’s too late.
Known for his action-hero role in the Taken movies, Liam Neeson shows a much more edgy side of his skills in Run All Night. While we are used to a man that shows no mercy as he kills strangers, now we see Neeson as a cold-blooded killer that goes after his closest friends. Although this sounds like a man full of anger and hate, viewers still trust and confide in him through every dangerous situation he gets himself and his son into. It is no surprise that Neeson is the perfect actor for this type of role, which makes Run All Night an excellent choice to watch this weekend!
