Sleepless Trailer (2017)
Trailer for Sleepless.
A cop with a connection to the criminal underworld scours a nightclub in search of his kidnapped son.
Sleepless is based on the 2011 French film Sleepless Night (Nuit Blanche). A cop races through a packed nightclub, dodging drug dealers, and corrupt cops in a mad chase to rescue his kidnapped son.
The Director for Sleepless, Baran bo Odar, has also directed Who Am I, The Silence and Unter der Sonne.
Also, the Writer for Sleepless, Andrea Berloff, has written the screenplay for The Legend of Conan , Blood Father, Straight Outta Compton and World Trade Center.
Here we go again, another kidnapping movie...a la Ransom, Taken, Kidnap, etc. This all too familiar story line is too apparent here and something we have seen before. Bad guy kidnaps child and parent goes on a rampage trying to rescue his/her child.
One thing that definitely looks different here is there is more action and with the film being set in Las Vegas there is a different vibe.
When I think of Jamie Foxx, I do not think action star. I think more of a dramatic actor and a great entertainer. It is tough to tell if he pulls it off in Sleepless. I am on the fence with this film, the all too familiar plot and so so action have me wanting to skip it.
