‘Run All Night’
Former hit man (Liam Neeson) must go to extreme measures to protect his son. Director Jaume Collet-Serra (who helmed Neeson’s “Non-Stop”) shows great skill at both staging eye-bending action sequences and heart-tugging emotional moments.
Efforts to bring back the dead lead to an evil result. First-time feature director David Gelb tries to create lively scares out of the bringing-back-the-dead film genre. The best he gets are a few nervous twitches. Mark Duplass stars.
