Der Kopfgeldjäger Jack Walsh soll im Auftrag eines Kautionsbüros für eine stattliche Summe den flüchtigen Buchhalter Jonathan Mardukas ins Gefängnis zurückbringen. Eigentlich keine allzu schwierige Aufgabe für den Profi Walsh - wären da nicht eine Reihe mordlüsterner Mafiosi, eiskalter FBI-Agenten und die Kopfgeldjäger-Konkurrenz, die sich allesamt an seine Fersen heften...

Englisch A decent crime comedy from the late 80s, with a somewhat dragged-out runtime that results in duller moments throughout the film. The screenplay is fairly simple, but Robert De Niro's acting saves it to a certain extent. Overall impression: 70%. ()

Englisch I like films about seemingly unimaginable friendships, even though Hollywood has produced many of them and will surely produce many more. Midnight Run, on top of that, has a huge advantage in the cast: De Niro is one of the best actors ever and Grodin fits his role to a tee; and then there is the director, Brest, who already proved with Beverly Hills Cop that he has no problem combining humour and action. It's not a perfect piece of work, I didn't shed tears of laughter and I didn't swallow every sentence, but it's a torrent of smart, unobtrusive and straightforward entertainment, the kind that you can hardly find anywhere nowadays. And if I remember correctly, the female character was only given space in one single scene, which is a rarely seen, but absolutely brilliant move that had a big impact on the final result. ()
