Mark Hamill is the only aspect of Midnight Ride (1990) worth watching. This is no exaggeration, guys.
Every other aspect of this film is terrible. The editing is atrocious. The action scenes go on too long. The plot indulges in one bad cliché after another. The "horror" is laughable. Dudikoff is uncharismatic and boring as "the hero" (who only manages to be slightly less obsessive and creepy than the villain of the piece). Gersak is a wooden damsel that you actually WANT to get killed, so terrible is her acting. Even the great Robert Mitchum is awful, probably lamenting his presence in this mess.
But Mark Hamill? Oh, Mark Hamill-- the scene-chewing, that devilish grin, the way he seems to be channeling Anthony Perkins from Psycho (1960) with the juxtaposition of his boyish looks, sexual repression, and homicidal tendencies. He is the only reason to watch this movie. It shows how versatile an actor Hamill is. He's certainly not the next Olivier, but it makes me sad that he's only known for Luke Skywalker and the Joker. He deserves more.
Midnight Ride has a few "so bad, it's funny" moments, but overall, this is pretty bad and only works when it's The Mark Hamill Show.
