Sleepless – Movie Review
A cop with a connection to the criminal underworld scours a nightclub in search of his kidnapped son.
January, where movies go to die. But every once and a while, a movie released during this garbage-pit month can surprise you. Far better than most January releases, Sleepless is an enjoyable action thriller with a great turn from Jamie Foxx. Escapist entertainment. Nothing more, nothing less.
Characters make idiotic choices, and the film feels quick and slapped together. But after watching Monster Trucks and The Bye Bye Man, Sleepless was a fun time at the movies.
