Goofs

When Sheriff Lonnie first meets Mr. Dunston, he very clearly introduces himself as Lonnie Poole (about 18:15 into the movie), and later, when Lonnie and Mr. Dunston are talking outside the auto-parts store (about 57:20), Mr. Dunston calls him Lonnie Poole. Even in the subtitles his last name is Poole, yet in the credits to the movie, he is identified as Lonnie Cole. See more »

Modest ambitions, modest results
3 August 2001 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Reactions to this movie seem to depend on one's appetite for action. Those hungry for it are disappointed while those looking instead for plot and character development are pleased. I tend to fall into the latter category but must point out that while "Nowhere to Run" ranks among the better Van Dammes, it relies too much on stock situations, (plucky woman defending homestead), and cliche characters, (corrupt business tycoon with oily smile). I'd also like to point out the good work of Edward Blatchford as the local Deputy Sheriff. It's a thankless part but he manages to make something of it, and no, I didn't read any dark psychological meaning into the scene in which he discovers Van Damme taking a shower. However, I did find utterly bizarre that moment at the dinner table when Patricia Arquette's little girl casually comments on the impressive size of a certain portion of Van Damme's anatomy. This was promptly followed by Arquette's comment that it was only average in size. Talk about weird!
