An entertaining movie! Where is the DVD?
26 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All of the fans of "Midnight Run" label this movie as extremely bad. Not at all. This movie has everything but the cursing.

Midnight Run for Your Life was fantastic.

Christopher McDonald plays Jack Walsh very well. Melora Walters is a perfect Lorna Bellstratten. The story for this movie is original and is very entertaining.

What I like most, is the more mellower Jack Walsh that McDonald brings and the more darker story line. There is less comedy.

Melora Walters character is always trying to kill herself and Christopher McDonald has to, in a way, jump in front of the bullet all the time.

Since there is no DVD, it will be difficult to find. I strongly suggest seeing it. It was a very good movie.
