MIDNIGHT RUN is great mixture between crime, action, thriller, even comedy genre. Director Martin Brest didn't to make us feel bored. So, MIDNIGHT RUN is very exciting and entertaining from the first minute. The most crucial thing that makes this movie feels great - is the wonderful chemistry between Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin. The interaction between them is interesting to follow. Highly entertaining!
Not as funny, heartwarming, dramatic, action packed, or well-scripted as you would imagine. But there is a spit-shine aesthetic that gives it all the credibility and charm needed to elevate it to a minor classic.
Great chemistry between the leads. And feel like it's deniros first Bronx tough guy acting choice when you think about it, brought a lot of his choices in this film to goodfellas. The 80s score runs rampant in the most inappropriate of places. Great film that deserves its place in basic cable heaven
