Rate this:
Jack Walsh is a tough ex-cop turned bounty hunter. Jonathan "The Duke" Mardukas is a sensitive accountant who embezzled $15 million from the Mob, gave it to charity and then jumped bail. Jack's in for a cool $100,000 if he can deliver The Duke from New York to L.A. on time, and alive. Sounds like just another Midnight Run (a piece of cake in bounty hunter slang), but it turns into a cross-country chase. The FBI is after The Duke to testify. The Mob is after him for revenge and Walsh is after him to just shut up. If someone else doesn't do the job, the two unlikely partners may end up killing each other.

Omitting superfluous fol-de-rol, this is a good movie.

BOTTOM LINE: MIDNIGHT RUN is a non-stop comedic cross country chase film, taking us from New York to the Chicago suburbs, thru the back country of Arizona, and finally the glitz & glamour of Las Vegas. If you like smartly written comedy, lots of action or are fan of either of the two stars then this movie is a must see. Only real 'downside' is the harsh language, (for those with young kids and/or an aversion to cursing). Wonderful on-screen rivalry & chemistry between the two leads

Funny movie, a little bit slow at times, but in the same vein of Planes, Trains & Automobiles--although not as witty as that one. Worth watching.

5 Star Comedy!
This 1988 chase & inverted-buddy film is directed by Martin Best, who directed 1984 Beverly Hills Cop.
If you enjoyed one, you'll enjoy the other.

This movie ranks right up there with Running Scared (Billy Crystal & Gregory Hines). A superb cast, well acted and a great script... what more can you ask for.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie, and found it very entertaining. Also enjoyed the funny chase scenes.
