Don’t judge a cop by his cover
Academy Award winner and recording artist Jamie Foxx plays an undercover cop with strong links to the drug trade in his latest action-packed flick Sleepless.
Foxx, who plays Vincent Downs, connives with his partner (played by rapper T.I.) to steal a cache of drugs from a powerful criminal mastermind, who orders his son kidnapped. The distraught dad is spurred to action, in a bid to rescue his son from the drug lord’s henchmen as he blasts his way through the Vegas nightlife.
A remake of the 2011 French film Sleepless Night, the film is full of nonstop gun-wielding action and punchy lines, guaranteed to keep you breathless as you go along on Vincent’s mission to bring his son safely home. Breath-taking car chases, explosions, and thrilling fight scenes mark the movie as a must-watch for any action enthusiast.
Michelle Monaghan, who came off from the first season of True Detective, with a Golden Globe nomination and was recently seen in the Pixels movie is also in the cast, along with rapper Young Jeezy, Drew Sidora, Dermot Mulroney, and Gabrielle Union.

Directed by Baran Bo Odar and penned by Andrea Berloff, the movie is exclusively distributed by Octoarts Films International and will hit Philippine theaters on January 18, 2017.
