What a movie!
13 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wow, the French certainly know how to make their thrillers! Following from the excellent crime/suspense/thriller POINT BLANK comes SLEEPLESS NIGHT, a film whose major storyline takes place in a single nightclub in a single night. Into this setting are thrown a roguish hero, his partner, good cops, bad cops, gangsters, drug dealers, a kidnapped kid, henchmen, and a few hundred revellers. What could possibly go wrong?

Nothing, it transpires - at least in terms of film-making. Because, believe me, this is exciting, excellent stuff, up there with the best of the 'intense thriller' genre (which includes films such as THE MAN FROM NOWHERE, NO WAY OUT, the BOURNE trilogy, etc). There isn't a great deal of fighting - apart from one frenetic bust-up - but the editing is super-fast and the storyline never lets you go for a second. The amount of energy that's gone into this movie is spectacular indeed.

By the time the film ends you feel up as exhausted as the hero did, because this is tight, focused, compelling and however else you'd like to describe it. Great acting, great cinematography, a film made by people who know exactly what they're doing and how to deliver a knuckle-scraping, heart-pumping thrill-ride of a movie. I couldn't rate it more highly and I can't wait to see it again.
