When Grady, an assassin with a genetic disorder that renders him unable to feel pain, is sent on a high-stakes assignment, his world is turned upside-down after an attack when he awakens to discover that he can feel pain for the first time in his life. With the clock ticking and his greatest asset gone, Grady will go head-to-head with his greatest fears and unspeakable enemies, while experiencing a tactile world he never could have imagined.

The Midnight Man is a reasonable B-Grade action flick.The background story includes some genuine originality too.
An assassin who cannot feel pain or sensory pleasures, such as touch. Its a rather different premise, that's turned on its head, with interesting results.
The selection of a good cast of seasoned, mostly television based actors really lifts this film. There's a decent amount of moderately funny, mostly gallows humour, on offer from the lead and supporting cast to off set the action scenes.
Perhaps the only downside to this film is it does languish somewhat in the middle. There is a discernible loss of the pace which could have been fixed with a more considered storyline and a little more action and less idle chat.
All in all, I liked The Midnight Man. Its in no way exceptional but it is watchable and for the most part, entertaining. Six out of ten from me.
