Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Sleepless wastes a talented cast -- and solid source material -- on a tired crime drama whose clichés rapidly outnumber its thrills.

Interesting characters save otherwise violent, vulgar movie.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Sleepless is an action thriller about undercover cops, drug dealers, and internal affairs. The violence is quite strong, with plenty of guns and shooting, punching and fighting, stabbing, blood spurts and blood puddles, car crashes, and characters dying. In one scene, a man is tortured with a pitching machine in a batting cage. Characters use extremely salty language constantly, including "f--k," "s--t," and the occasional use of the "N" word and "ass." The bad guys are drug dealers, and everyone in the story is after a 25-kilo package of cocaine, which is shown in several scenes (but no drugs are used). There's some social drinking and other drug references, but sex isn't an issue other than the appearance of scantily clad women at spas and clubs and some brief innuendo. Bottom line? This isn't anything particularly original or special, but the characters are interesting, and it offers some fun for older teens and up.
