So we didn’t go to the cinema yesterday afterall to see Resident Evil, simply because (after a long day of work here at DVDLocker) we had a little shall we say cat nap? And in turn missed the viewing (oops), anyway when we woke up we watched Run All Night – see our indepth review below but we thought this would be a good choice simply because both myself and partner LOVE the Taken saga’s, and of course the famous Liam Neeson stars in this film so we did have rather high hopes, just no sign of Kim!
Liam Neeson plays retired hit-man, James Conlon, and it’s one of the finest roles he’s played in years with a great performance, and with additional superb acting from Joel Kinnaman, whom plays his son, Mike Conlon. The first ‘Taken’ may have turned out great, until it launched a franchise, but ‘Run All Night’ is a definite improvement over Neeson’s latest work, and a major improvement over clichéd action movies released in the past decade. What makes it so good, is that Neeson brings company with him: his co-star Kinnaman who plays his son – and it’s a different movie experience altogether as in most clichéd action thrillers the main protagonist, usually played by a familiar action star, is usually without company the whole way through. The character James Conlon is so similar to Jimmy Bobo, a part Sylvester Stallone played in a movie called ‘Bullet to the Head’. Jimmy Bobo was an ageing hit-man who still made hits on assignments, but compared to Conlon, he’s more emotionless and merciless. Neeson’s Conlon still had good in his heart somewhere, whereas Bobo cared more about killing and seeking vengeance. However, the action sequences are enjoyable and thrilling, acting is great and the direction and screen writing becomes intriguing whenever the main plot kicks in – so Run All Night has what it takes of being one of the most exciting movies of the year (well back then) We love trying out some old, new and everything in between here, this is also what we offer our customers at www.dvdlocker.co.uk This film is sure to be a hit for your evening entertainment, I would have to say Action at one of its best!! Well done – great movie!
