Critic Reviews:
“Sleepless is pretty much a standard-issue R-rated corrupt cop caper. It’s not terrible, by genre standards. Nor is it memorable. What it is, however, is chock-full of violence and profanity.” -Adam R. Holz, Plugged In
“Sleepless stinks of disrepute: generic title, mid-January release, no advance screenings. But it’s not like today’s Hollywood has a surplus of watchable B-pictures.”- Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, A.V. Club
“Though it suffers from minor plot inconsistencies and some shaky camerawork, this thriller offers a fun, entertaining, ‘B’-level story; the terrific characters help fill in the blanks.”- Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Medi
