Sleepless (2017)



Critic Consensus: Sleepless wastes a talented cast -- and solid source material -- on a tired crime drama whose clichés rapidly outnumber its thrills.

The final twist is genuinely unexpected, though purely because of its irrelevance.

A smart and speedy cop movie that occasionally reaches for greatness.

Alleged action movies need way more novelty than just flour being dusted over the combatants or brief bursts of underwater photography to ring the changes.

The sheer silliness defeated me.

In its portrayal of cops on the take, Sleepless often resembles an episode of TV's The Shield.

Monaghan and Foxx, for all their gifts, can't transcend the material, though they do get more out of it than most others would be able to.

Audience Reviews for Sleepless

A far cry from the worst film of the year, but it does seem surprising that someone as talented as Jamie Foxx would bother with something this overpoweringly generic.

A series of clichés and action tropes which are enjoyable if you have nothing else to watch but it is nothing you will remember after the film ends. Despite the fact the film actually tries to set up for a sequel, Sleepless is a one and done crime drama that is about as original as the French film that it is based on.

Sleepless is like your average sleepwalk journey. Nothing to expect, nothing to remember, nothing to cheer on. It's a series of fellow dreams that just seem forgettable to the maximum.
