'Run All Night' is a tough film with plenty of action. In fact much of the action will have you on the edge of your seat. Rooting for the good guys who may be the bad guys, it is all convoluted.
Liam Neeson, plays Jimmy Conlon, a has been mob enforcer. In fact so bad he has dreams of the people he killed. he worked for the toughest of the mob, Shawn Maguire, played by Ed Harris. Jimmy wakes up in a bar, and just starts drinking again. He now scrounges money from Shawn’s son Danny, played terrifically by Boyd Holbrook. Hence the tough guy is now a laughing stock. He had a family he never paid much attention to. His son, Mike, played by Joel Kinnaman. Kinnaman was the driving force detective in the series, 'The Killing'. He us living the straight life, working as a limo driver. He has a wife and two children.
So, here are the players. Danny has mixed with an Albanian mob to bring drugs into his father's business. Dad wants nothing to do with it and says no. Danny is in big trouble, and when the Albanian mob shows up that night, all Hell breaks loose. Mike is the chauffeur test drove the Albanians to Danny's office. He gets mixed up in the fireworks, and he and his father, Jimmy take off. The film centers around Shawn McGuire's hunt for both Mike and Jimmy, and the FBI looking for all of them. A very tense action oriented film, with tough guys, violence gore and grits. If this is your forte, than this film is for you.
