Monaghan and Foxx, for all their gifts, can't transcend the material, though they do get more out of it than most others would be able to.

"Sleepless" is a propulsive thin exercise, "energetic" but tedious, the kind of January movie that Jamie Foxx should have permanently graduated from.

We get muttering and glowering from Mr. Foxx, a story that can't manage enough twists to tie a shoelace, and set pieces that have been done better in other movies.

At a certain point, Odar's intense atmospherics - amplified by the throbbing bass notes of Michael Kamm's heavy, percussive score - start to feel like the work of a filmmaker on genre autopilot.

Never rising above the level of generic B-movie, Sleepless represents the sort of disposable fare typically dropped into theatres in January.
