Movie Reviews

Campy action film with funny cameos
Richard W. Haines | Croton-on-Hudson, New York United States | 02/01/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Run for Cover" is a campy action film using the terrorist on the loose in New York City plot. What makes it fun is all of the cameos. It was a little like "The Blues Brothers" in that respect. Batman Adam West, Viveca Lindfors from Stargate, Al Sharpton, Lynn Samuels, Curtis Sliwa and even Ed Koch all pop up at the most unlikely moment. The Sliwa scene made me laugh when he called the terrorists "dope sucking psychopathic killing machines". Ed Koch was also good as the mayor. At the end of the movie Batman calls his assistant 'Robin' which also made me chuckle.In the credits it says that the movie was shot in 3-D. This version is not in 3-D but it's still fun to watch. I smiled when I saw all of the close-ups of things coming at the camera.
Bombs, guns, antennae, camera, water and a homeless man's dirty feet which was gross. Very campy. In the credits the terrorist circles Manhattan in a helicopter looking for a place to blow up. He circles the Twin Towers which was creepy.The plot has some twists which were interesting. Thomas Dunne looks like William Defoe and is pretty good. The terrorists all speak with fake accents like Hogan's Heroes but that was part of the fun. The music is very good and the theme catchy. It stuck in my mind after the movie was over. The editing was clever too.
I like the last shot when the hero turns off the radio and the movie at the same time.The stills have some shots of Adam West and Ed Koch on the set.Too bad they didn't have Sliwa and Sharpton too. The trailer is a riot. The commentary by the director was interesting and there were some funny stories. I liked the one about Adam West and the cop and Koch and the monster. It doesn't look like the commentary matches the picture but it was fun to listen to anyway. The photography is sharp and the colors vivid. The stereo is okay but there are no surrounds. I thought it was a fun DVD, especially with the commentary and trailer."
