Movie review: Sleepless

Share

SLEEPLESS stars Jamie Foxx as undercover Las Vegas police officer Vincent Downs, who is caught in a high stakes web of corrupt cops and the mob-controlled casino underground. When a heist goes wrong, a crew of homicidal gangsters kidnaps Downs’ teenage son. In one sleepless night he will have to rescue his son, evade an internal affairs investigation and bring the kidnappers to justice.

PROS

  • Good performance by Jamie Foxx.
  • Interesting story line.
  • Exciting shootouts and fight scenes that will have you at the edge of your seat.

CONS

  • The storyline was at times predictable.

FAVORITE QUOTES

Vincent Downs: “Whatever you’re aiming at , make sure you’re prepared to kill it!”

Jennifer Bryan: “This city is crawling with dirty cops”.

CONCLUSSION

Sleepless is a solid action thriller. Jamie Foxx had a good performance as a cop with questionable morals who will go to virtually any lengths to save his son. It has a gripping storyline that will have you questioning who are corrupt cops and who are the good ones.

Sleepless ends with some unanswered questions that may lead to a sequel.

This is not a movie that will live long in the memory but its a good way to spend a Saturday night.
