It might not be Donald Westlake, but it does its thing: meaningless, nonstop violence and movement, enacted by a large cast of characters who are only looking out to survive into the next scene.

The listless, shoddy sort of remake where it feels like all of the characters have already seen the movie they're in, Sleepless reduces one of the best action films of the 21st century into one of the most benign.

This grimly mindless shoot-'em-up is based on a 2011 French picture that was in turn inspired by American movies from The French Connection to Die Hard and Taken-in other words, this one is derivative two times over.

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… More
