Interesting De Niro acting, not his typical type of character. This is a good story to watch!

Charles Grodin steals more than the mob's money, he steals the show! His calm exterior in the midst of bullets flying and De Niro's expeltives and threats make this a "Don't miss" movie for the original style of verbal jabs and sparring. Enjoy!!

FAST-PACED, WHACKY, A DAZZLING TALE OF FRIENDSHIP AND MORALS
Shashank Tripathi | Gadabout | 04/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the funniest films ever made that still manages to hold up an engaging plot. A total winner.It features some of the most genuinely stupid and amusing tough guys in the history of cinema, and a tantalizing slow burn by Deniro, a shortchanged ex-cop, who just wants a peaceful little coffee shop as payment for his decency and integrity. The comic chemistry between Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin is top-drawer. Surrounded on all side by ethical infants, these two characters at least know the difference between virtue and vice, and are ironically the moral backbone of the film. Comedies that don't wallow in their humor are twice as much fun, and Midnight Run maintains a swift pace throughout. Situation-wise, it's a dynamo of action. I found the denouement to be quite moving as well, at the very least it provokes thought. If you're looking for a comedy with depth, bite, wit and excitement, then catch Midnight Run. The DVD's spiffy special features quite simply reinforce my recommendation of purchasing this one, not just renting."
DeNiro displays his comedic chops
R. J. Marsella | California | 09/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film pairs Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin in a Buddy/ Road film/ Action story combination that results in one of the best pairnings ever in this type of movie. Both actors are in top form and play off of each other beautifully. The supporting cast is also excellent particularly Dennis Farina who delivers a superb performance as a sleazy mob boss who has an endless supply of creative threats to use to motivate his subordinates. Yaphett Koto is also very good as frustrated FBI Inspector Alonzo Mosley. It is the combination of DeNiro and Grodin that really drives the flim and provides both it's best comedy and it's more dramatic moments. One of the best movies of this type I've ever seen. Highly recommended. There are so many memorable lines that the movie holds up to repeated viewings."
TOP NOTCH ACTION COMEDY!!!
Mr. N. Carnegie | Kirkcaldy, Scotland, UK. | 11/10/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the story of a bounty hunter (De Niro) trying to get to LA with white collar criminal (Grodin) to collect a million dollar bounty. Unfortunately for him though, not only his bounty ann incessant pain in the ass but he's also got the mob, the Feds and another bounty hunter all trying to stop him collecting his pay check. Midnight Run is a rare gem, a top class action comedy with one of the most unusual screen "buddy" partnerships in cinematic history, which has sadly been somewhat overlooked by the majority of people and that's a great shame because it boasts great characters, great comedy, great action scenes, a wonderful plot and a brilliant script with stand-out performances from Dennis Farina, Charles Grodin and in particular Robert De Niro who proves what a great comedic (as well as character) actor he is. Expertly directed by Martin Brest, who directed Beverly Hills Cop (and Scent Of A Woman), this is in my opinion a much better movie than the much lauded Eddie Murphy movie and a must see, particularly if you are a fan of Robert De Niro. In fact it is so good I'd give the movie five stars if it weren't for the lack of extras on the DVD but (especially at a budget price) this is definitely one well worth adding to your collection."
