It maybe the tried and tested same plot line, same character, new name but it works. A New York backdrop, car chases, hijacking, guns blazing, bodies, dead of course, and it's all smiles at the box office. Liam Neeson returns.
Gangster Shawn Maguire's (Ed Harris), made it big but his friend, ageing Irish-American Brooklyn hit man 'The Gravedigger', Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson), a man with regrets is down on his luck scratching for jobs that no self-respecting hit man would touch and that means Danny (Boyd Holbrook), Shawn Maguire's sleeze bag son. It's self-pity, hit the bottle and keep an eye out for Detective Harding (Vincent D’Onofrio) who’s been trying to nail Jimmy for 30 years.
When Jimmy’s estranged son, Mike (Joel Kinnaman), witnesses the execution of an Albanian drugs dealer, he becomes a target, and family loyalties kick in.
Played against a tantalising New York backdrop, 'Run All Night' is a fast paced action thriller and you've got to cheer Liam Neeson who's game to take on all comers.
