'SLEEPLESS': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

The new action flick starring Jamie Foxx. Foxx plays a corrupt cop, who has to rescue his abducted son from vicious criminals that he stole drugs from. The movie costars Michelle Monaghan, Scoot McNairy, Dermot Mulroney, David Harbour, Gabrielle Union, Octavius J. Johnson and NIGHT' (written by Frederic Jardin, Nicolas Saada and Olivier T.I.. It was directed by Baran bo Odar, and scripted by Andrea Berloff. The film is a remake of the 2011 French thriller 'SLEEPLESS Douyere). It's received mostly negative reviews from critics, and it's underperformed at the Box Office so far. I mostly enjoyed it though.

Vincent Downs (Foxx) and Sean Cass (T.I.) are two corrupt Las Vegas cops, that decide to rob a cocaine shipment from a casino boss, named Stanley Rubino (Mulroney). Rubino was planning to sell the drugs to a very powerful mobster, named Rob Novak (McNairy), so he desperately wants them back. In order to get the cocaine back, Rubino has Downs' son (Johnson) kidnapped. Downs will then do anything to get his son back, while he also tries to elude a persistent Internal Affairs agent (Monaghan).

The movie has some pretty entertaining action scenes in it, and an involving enough plot. The supporting performances are all good (especially McNairy as the gad guy), and Foxx is always a dependable action hero. There's not a lot to it though, despite the fact that it's setup for a sequel (but who knows, it might be cool to see Vincent Downs again). This film isn't that great, but it does what it's supposed to do adequately enough.
