Better than crappy
15 January 2017 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

The new Jamie Foxx action flick SLEEPLESS is a bit bi-polar as it alternates from surprising (sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad) and NOT surprising (sometimes for the good sometimes for the bad).

SURPRISING:  Jamie Foxx tamps down his natural charm to play "against type" as a crooked cop who rips off a drug dealer.

NOT SURPRISING:  Because of this, the first 1/2 hour of this film is a mess.  Foxx is boring, the rapid-fire patter of his partner (played by hip-hop artist T.I.) is annoying and Michelle Monaghan plays a tough female cop trying to prove herself to her male counterparts, yet again.

SURPRISING:  A fight scene in a kitchen at about the 1/2 hour mark was actually pretty entertaining, making me sit up from the slumped position I was in and thought "okay...perhaps there is some hope for this film."

NOT SURPRISING:  David Harbour - who has made a career out of playing bad cops shows up as a cop who might (or might not) be bad.

SURPRISING:  As the film draws towards the final battle, Foxx has given up downplaying his natural charm and I found myself actively rooting for him.

NOT SURPRISING:  Gabriel Union, in the obligatory "wife on the phone" roll decides to leave the safety of where she is at and meet Foxx where the final battle takes place.  Do you think she'll get involved?

SURPRISING:  The over-the-top finale as staged by director Baron bo Odar was terrifically over-the-top.  And the film, up to this point, had no indication of this.  It was as if the Director said "Screw it, we're going for it" - and it works (at least for me)!

NOT SURPRISING:  Dermot Mulroney (or is it Dylan McDermot?) and Scoot McNairy put in good,fun supporting performances.

SURPRISING:  They actually set this film up for a sequel!

NOT SURPISING:  This film won't win any Oscars nor will we break up into discussion groups afterward.

SURPRISING:  My rating

6 stars and you can take that to the Bank(ofMarquis)
