Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective 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 (Joel 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 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.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Liam Neeson is in typically fine form, but Run All Night suffers from a convoluted plot and workmanlike execution.

Interesting characters in violent, choppy action thriller.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Run All Night is a revenge-driven action thriller starring Liam Neeson. The main character struggles with his past as a hit man and tries to find redemption, and his son tries not to follow in his father's footsteps by being a good father to his own children. But there's a high body count and tons of violence, with shooting, fighting, stabbing, bloody wounds, and blood spatters. There are also fires (a character's face is burned), explosions, car chases, and car crashes. Extremely strong, frequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," and much more; there's also some very strong (albeit occasional) innuendo. Minor characters are drug dealers and are seen snorting cocaine. A packet of heroin is also shown, and pot is referenced. The main character is often shown drunk, but he stops drinking while on the run. Messages of actions and consequences play into the story, which could provide some discussion for older teens.
