As good as the original, but way too similar.

"Midnight Run for Your Life" is the third and last "Midnight Run" adventure in a series of television movies. Christopher McDonald gives a great performance as Jack Walsh.

Chris McDonald gives Jack Walsh a new image than Robert De Niro. There's a lot of yelling and frustration, also he brings a little brain-less effect that gets him into trouble.

The movie focuses on Lorna Bellstratten (Melora Walters) who is a waitress that has a dream in show business. She is dating a Hollwood producer, Micheal Vega, who is really a drug-dealer and uses her to drop a bomb.

Lorna is on the run when the cops chase after her. She flees to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where she hires a hit-man to kill her. This mission differs A LOT from the other movies. Lorna's father hired Eddie and Jack with the price of $10,000. Eddie wants to split the price 50/50 with Jack if he can track her down and bring her back to LA alive before anyone else gets to her.

But, there is no Marvin Dorfler to sabotage Walsh's efforts in this movie.

Walsh gets into a bigger problem when he reaches San Cabo Lucas. Vega sent his stupid henchmen, Hector and Benny, who are a lot like Joey and Tony from "Midnight Run", to chase after Walsh to find Lorna. The cops are also after her and so is the hit-man.

The story becomes more serious by the end of the movie. Also dramatic, when it ends on a beach. The script was written by Shaun Cassidy. The funny scenes are in the beginning and serious, closer to the end.

The movie features a more mellower Jack Walsh when he falls in love with Lorna("Jack...would you kiss me?"). A likeness of Walsh we haven't seen before, As for the music: it is way to silly to fit with the story. It didn't compliment the film like the first "Midnight Run." You won't find much information on this or any other "Midnight Run: Action Pack" movie. I was able to find a copy from a British video store. You might be able to find a bootleg somewhere...

All in all, this is a great movie.
