A thoroughly engaging action film, MIDNIGHT RUN boasts a superb cast that transforms its rather mundane story line into something memorable, funny, and moving. Tough, foul-mouthed bounty hunter Jack Walsh (Robert De Niro) is hired by bail bondsman Eddie Moscone (Joe Pantoliano) to bring

back Mafia accountant Jonathan Mardukas (Charles Grodin), who has embezzled $15 million from the Los Angeles mob, given the money to charity, and skipped bail. In an extended cross-country chase, Walsh, flat broke, drags Mardukas on board nearly every modern mode of transportation available in an

effort to avoid their pursuers and get back to LA so Walsh can collect his money. As the plot takes a series of complicated twists and turns, the two men's personalities and relationship develop. BEVERLY HILLS COP director Martin Brest has allowed the actors to improvise, and their resulting

interaction is more realistic, funny, and surprising than that of any buddy film released in the last several years. The characters in MIDNIGHT RUN feel real--not only as if they existed before we met them, but also as if they will continue after the movie ends.
