Midnight Run

Action, Comedy, Crime, Thriller 2h 6m 1988

Midnight Run manages to transcend all the buddy action-comedy movie cliches with excellent performances from its two leads Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin, a consistently inventive plot and an exuberant energy and style. When bounty hunter Jack Walsh (DeNiro) is charged with grabbing bail jumper Jon Mardukas (Grodin), he has no idea the Mob and the FBI have the same idea.

’[Director Martin Brest] will be remembered for this minor classic that approaches perfection, a superbly contrived combination of numerous genres and sub-genres – the comedy-thriller, buddy movie, odd-couple picture, prisoner-and-escort drama and road movie.’ Philip French, The Observer

‘An expert reworking of the tried and tested-odd couple-shackled-together routine.’ Ian Nathan, Empire
