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 (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 , The Silence and Unter der Sonne.
Also, the Writer for Sleepless, Andrea Berloff, has written the screenplay for The Legend of Conan , Blood Father, and World Trade Center. Here we go again, another kidnapping movie…a la , 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.
