What's wrong with everybody?!?! (by paulasphotography)
I think this movie is really rather good. It definitely does not deserve the criticism it has received and the low rating it has been given. If I had taken notice of what others had said about this movie, I would not have watched it and that would have been a shame. There is a lot of intensity in it and a lot of you-don't-know-who the 'baddie' is. Stellar performances from all the cast. I think it portrays the real anger that a lot of gun wielding, drug trafficking no goods would have. The suspense is palatable in it. My view: do not take any notice of what these so called critics <more>
say about movies and judge for yourself you may well be pleasantly surprised .
Sometimes, good movies don't have a chance to amount to anything during their theatrical release. The Jamie Foxx & Michelle Monaghan thriller "Sleepless" spent eight weeks in theaters before Universal Pictures pulled it from exhibition. Ultimately, this movie coined less than its cost, falling shy of its $30-million budget. Nevertheless, despite its poor box office take, this suspenseful saga set in Las Vegas exemplified exciting melodrama at its best where the good guys and the bad guys find themselves caught in a crack. Jamie Fox plays veteran detective Vincent Downs on <more>
the trail of the villains, while Michelle Monaghan is cast as Internal Affairs police officer Bryant who wants Down's scalp for his alleged illegal activities. "Straight Outta Compton" scenarist Andrea Berloff does a slam-bang job of keeping the characters at one another's throats. Scoot McNairy is a short-fused, murderous, adversary who has no qualms about killing anybody, not even when his enemies turn out be some of his own relatives who have passing information to the DEA. Character actor David Harbour of "Quantum of Solace" and "The Equalizer" may be the only weak link in this pulsating crime saga because he suffers from continually being cast as amoral dastard. Meantime, the action is fast. gritty, and nail-biting. Several characters wind up in body bags, primarily the villains, but even our hero and heroine have reasons to fuss about his or her fate. Swiss director Baran bo Odar bottles the violence up effectively in one Las Vegas single casino on a night where the narcotics exchange is scheduled to transpire. Nobody had planned for everything to go sideways, but they struggle to take advantage of their predicaments. Clocking in at 95 minutes, "Sleepless" qualifies as the kind of thriller that never wears out its welcome. Andrea Berloff's no-nonsense screenplay bristles with several surprises, particularly an evil-doesn't-perish ending that suggests the villains are regrouping for the future.
I couldn't sleep after i watched this movie. (by huntermartin-75875)
Sleepless, starring Jamie Foxx, the kid who plays T, and the lady who never leaves the hospital set. Sleepless, described by the producers as "Black Taken", could not be a worse fitting title. While the taken movies are action shlock hopping onto generic trends, Sleepless breaks new ground by having an emotionally devestated main character. Jamie Foxx whose characters name I don't know is extremely emotionally distraught throughout the whole film. This on a surface level is why he only mumbles throughout the entire movie. But on a deeper level you can see he is drained of his <more>
energy by alot of enemies. He's got alotta enemies tryna drain him of his energy. As a matter of fact these enemies prove it ain't no easy grab, because as Jamie Foxx points out, "It ain't no easy grab... THEY GOT T." T himself is one of the best, if not the best teen characters in any film or product of media. Miles Morales, GET OUTTA HERE.BELLA SWAN? MORE LIKE BELLA UHOH VAMPIRES. FRODO BAGGINS? MORE LIKE FRODO NOT-AS-GOOD-AS-T. DEspite having only approximately 10 minutes of screen time, T goes through a massive emotional arc of being disconnected from Jamie Foxx, to after getting rescued adoring and respecting his father and hating MARK GOD MARK. In conclusion, I recommend this movie to everyone as It is not just black and white. It's Everything in between and MORE.
Sleepless is a fast paced action movie, that keeps you engaged and entertained. The thrilling dirty cop movie has some great actions scenes and a good story line that is easy to follow.The performance of Jamie Foxx does not disappoint and the supporting cast all do a decent job as well.I would watch this movie again and would recommend it to others.
Some good action! (by rodrig58)
Being Romanian myself, I had a great and pleasant surprise to see that the image of the film is signed by another Romanian, Mihai Malaimare Jr., who also worked with Francis Ford Coppola, creating together a very special film Youth Without Youth 2007 , after the writings of another famous Romanian Mircea Eliade . A nervous cinematography, worthy of a good action movie. Perhaps Denzell Washington is a better actor, in other people's opinion, but I like this Jamie Foxx more, he's more natural. Michelle Monaghan, Scoot McNairy, Dermot Mulroney, David Harbor, Gabrielle Union, are also <more>
very good. Good music, good story, good direction.
