Forgive me If I come across has nitpicking

You may go sleepless while watching this abduction thriller with a couple of stars, Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan. They're Las Vegas PD detectives involved in drug busting with all the kidnap, corruption components in place.The outstanding element is the awareness that an Oscar winner--Foxx--can be wasted in a hum-drum actioner that surprises not at all. Believe me when I tell you that if you stirred Liam Neeson in with this script, you'd know the difference only by the skin color of the kidnapped children.Although director Odar does a competent job with the foot races and car chases, they are still boiler-plate staples of the genre. While Foxx spends most of the film improbably finding his son, losing him, finding him again in an almost Groundhog Day motif, the action becomes tedious quickly. His life-threatening-wound is ludicrously not debilitating except for a few high-priced Oscar grunts that end up immobilizing a goon or two who have no similar disabilities.It was a dismal afternoon when I saw Sleepless because I love cinematic visuals and watching Michelle make something out of nothing. Otherwise, you'll be more careful about the safety of your children. That's the good part.

Watch Oscar Jamie sleep.

'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.Watch our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: http://youtu.be/B4EI2AvkLgo

I wanted to love this movie so much smdh

The two decades on either side of the new millennium seem to have been the heyday of movies about corrupt cops. After some pretty corny cop movies in the 1980s, 1990 started off its decade pretty well with "Q & A" and "Internal Affairs". As we moved through the 90s, Hollywood served up "Bad Lieutenant", "Unlawful Entry", "Léon: The Professional", "Cop Land" and the Best Picture Oscar nominee "L.A. Confidential". In the first decade of the 21st century, we got a chance to enjoy Denzel Washington's Oscar-winning performance in "Training Day", followed by the underrated pair "Cellular" and "16 Blocks" and, of course, the Best Picture Oscar winner "The Departed". The current decade has given us less popular dirty cop movies like "Rampart" and "The Place Beyond the Pines". 2017's "Sleepless" (R, 1:35) has things in common with the corrupt cop movies of the previous decade and those of the 90s.The movie opens with Las Vegas police partners in crime prevention (and crime), Vincent Downs (Jamie Foxx) and Sean Cass (T.I.) stealing a bag of cocaine from a group of hooded thugs that they unceremoniously dispatch in the process. When their sergeant is assigning a team to investigate the homicide scene, Downs and Cass convince him to give them the case. Meanwhile, in the same department, Internal Affairs detective Jennifer Bryant (Michelle Monaghan) is recovering from a drug bust gone wrong. Bryant's partner, Doug Dennison (David Harbour) and the police psychologist express concern for Bryant's mental and physical state, but she insists on getting back to work. Bryant is also investigating the aforementioned drug murder because shell casings from police ammunition were found at the scene. As the story progresses, Bryant becomes convinced that Downs isn't what he seems.Things get dicier when it is revealed that the cocaine that Downs and Cass stole belongs to casino owner Stanley Rubino (Dermot Mulroney). Rubino sends more masked thugs to kidnap Downs' son, Thomas (Octavius Johnson) and demands that Downs bring the drugs to his casino if he ever wants to see his son again. As Downs is trying to hide his son's predicament from the teen's mother, Dena (Gabrielle Union), the person for whom Rubino was transporting the drugs, ruthless local crime boss Robert Novak (Scott McNairy) comes looking for his coke. All this drama descending upon Rubino's casino is compounded when Bryant and Dennison, who have been following Downs, show up at the casino and work to figure out what's going on. This leads to a series of escalating confrontations and rising stakes for all involved."Sleepless" is entertaining, but forgettable and fails to live up to its potential. This is a remake of the 2011 French thriller "Sleepless Night", but can't match that film's adept storytelling and high tension. Several plot points in this American version are suspect at best, although the excellent cast helps draw you in and there are a couple decent twists late in the story. The plotting feels like a throwback to genre movies of the late 80s and early 90s and the overall quality is as unremarkable as the corrupt cop tales from earlier in the 2010s. "Sleepless" is good enough to keep you awake and somewhat engaged, but it isn't impactful enough to keep you up at night thinking about it. "B-"

Maybe a number 2?

If anyone remembers Jamie Foxx's earlier attempts to be a leading man like Bait, this movie reminds of that but just a little better. It's like he learned whatever lesson he needed to learn and applied it to this movie, yet still has much to learn.Fox is attempting to be an action star in Sleepiness, don't think he ever attempt this before or at lest not this straight forward. He drives the car fast, shoots the gun cool and gets to show of his fighting moves. It was a little off what I usually expect from Fox but he pulls it off with charm.The film is very witty at times not afraid of poking fun at itself.At the same time it's a very instance polemic drama about the tangle weave of corruption.The parts when Fox needed to be dramatic he handled just fine, but the movie could have used a better screenplay with better dialog, and the parts where Jamie needed to be funny of course were that. It was some of the action sequences. Fox still could use a few lessons on punching and kicking.Sure it's not the first movie that Fox has stared in but it's a different vibe from things like Collateral and Django Unchained, were Fox is starring in something as big as he is. Sleepless is a movie met to draw in people to see what Jamie Fox can do specifically, and it's an OK film for that reason.
