Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a nice 88 score, stating: “Even though it feels as if we’ve seen this movie before, Run All Night is a stylish and kinetic thriller, with Neeson at his gritty, world-weary best, some of the coolest camera moves in recent memory and a Hall of Fame villain in the great Ed Harris.”
Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 80 score, saying: “Rife with familiar elements given something of a different spin, Run All Night manages to leave you out of breath but hungry for more.”
Mick LaSalle over at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a decent 75 grade. He stated: “After devising a sturdy frame for Neeson’s special brand of sorrowful mayhem, the filmmakers expertly fill in Run All Night with a series of charged action scenes, including a rare one in which Neeson chases after a cop car, instead of the other way around.”
Brian Tallerico from RogerEbert.com, gave it a 75 score, saying: “Run All Night is proof that quality action films don’t really need to reinvent the wheel each time out as long as they make it spin this smoothly.”
Alonso Duralde over at TheWrap, gave it a 75 score, claiming: “There’s not much new in this tale of grim men staring, and then shooting, each other down, but this cast and crew know how to spin this yarn with efficacy and economy.”
Andy Webster from The New York Times, gave it a 70 score,stating: “The movie, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Mr. Neeson in the efficient airborne thriller “Non-Stop,” has two saving graces: a tight script and terrific acting.”
