Release Date: March 13, 2015 RUN ALL NIGHT is one of those movies that could be a lot better, but it could also be a lot worse. If one can accept the colossal coincidence that fuels the action, it has solid emotional underpinnings, a strong cast and a snazzy visual style courtesy of director Jaume Collet-Serra. On the flip side, writer Brad Ingelsby’s on-the-nose dialogue tends to undercut the […]Read On »

THE KILLING Season 2 follows the homicide investigation of the murder of Seattle-area teenager Rosie Larsen, as well as the crime’s devastating effect on her family.
