Mobster and hit man Jimmy Conlon has one night to figure out where his loyalties lie: with his estranged son, Mike, whose life is in danger, or his longtime best friend, mob boss Shawn Maguire, who wants Mike to pay for the death of his own son.
Professional Brooklyn hit-man Jimmy Conlon is more commonly known as THE GRAVEDIGGER. Jimmy was a mob hit-man, who was best friends with his boss Sean Maguire. But when Jimmy's son, Michael, is marked for death by the mob, Jimmy must go up against Sean to protect Michael at all costs. Together, he and Michael must avoid corrupt cops, contract killers and the mob to survive the night.Written by

When they find the 2 bodies in the limousine, they say "187 in the suspect vehicle." This is referring to California Penal Code 187 as a homicide. In New York, the Penal Law for a homicide/murder is 125, therefore they would not be using the code 187. LAPD often uses this code but the NYPD does not. See more »
They should have locked you up a long time ago. Made you pay for the things you did.
Just because I'm not behind bars doesn't mean I'm not paying for what I did, Michael.

The end credits have three title cards: at the beginning of the initial credits, at the end of the initial credits, and at the very end. Most films only have one or maybe two title cards in the end credits. See more »
Liam Neeson, starring in his his now standard turn of several similar action thrillers. A man with a past given a chance to redeem himself with judicious amounts of crowd-pleasing violence. Perhaps it's unfair to say the Northern Irish actor could phone in this performance from anywhere in the world, as he does it so well, but one can understand those that criticize the actor for repeating himself, with the inevitable diminishing effect at the box office.
Run All Night deserves to be seen as more than just another Liam Neeson early-year actioner. It's a nasty movie with great pace and a strong spine thanks to those two prolific leads. Although it does have some flaws and may drag in between scenes, though as an action thriller it provides the necessary thrills and interest for the viewers.
