The Chris McDonald films? On DVD? It's about time. 20 Feb. 2011
By J. A. SISSICK - Published on Amazon.com
Recently in the past, I began an investigation. To track down the Midnight Run movies that starred Christopher McDonald as Jack Walsh.

What I wasn't prepared for was the five-year-long battle I had with the internet. Time had completely forgot about these movies that apparently were "not so good." The three "Universal Action Pack" movies were great. I was able to track them down in a small video rental store somewhere in Great Britain. They were not released on VHS here in the States. Finally, Universal has decided to release them with the De Niro classic on DVD.

"Another Midnight Run" is a decent flick but McDonald's Jack Walsh is basically a complete moron. Not the best in the bunch but still fun to watch at 3 A.M. when there's nothing on TV and you can't sleep. Cathy Moriarty and Jeffrey Tambor are funny and welcome in the film as Walsh's con-artist bail-jumpers.

"Midnight Runaround" was much better but, unfortunately, still had a bit of Walsh's elements of stupidity from AMR. The sinister Oklahoma town who united to prevent Kyle Secor's arrest quickly turns silly and the film runs out of gas just in time to save it. In ode to the original film, Walsh befriends his young bail jumper but the magic from the De Niro/Grodin friendship is, unfortunately absent. In the end, this was an entertaining sequel.

"Midnight Run for Your Life" was, IMHO, the best of the three McDonald films. Written by Shaun Cassidy and co-starring the lovable Melora Walters, Walsh heads to Cabo San Lucas to track down an accused murder who's being chased by a hit man, the police, and a drug dealer and must bring her back to L.A. alive. The silliness from the first two films are still around but doesn't kill the film's somewhat serious atmosphere. Walter's character is both fun and serious when she tries to kill herself multiple times. MRFYL is well written and well acted for a TV movie. It was great fun.

If you are a die hard fan of the original film, DO NOT expect much from the sequels. They were produced for TV during MCA's Action Pack program which had a lot of made-for-TV sequels and spin-offs that included four "Bandit" films...or sequels to "Smokey and the Bandit." Action Pack's Midnight Run films were not as big as the De Niro film but entertaining action comedies.

Sort of Awful 22 Jan. 2013
By Lost in Thawt - Published on Amazon.com

I had "Midnight Run" on VHS tape some years ago and either lost it when I moved across country or threw it out, so I was glad to get a new copy. I have to say though, two of the other movies on these two disks are pretty much a waste of time.

I don't see the problem as being the fault of Chris McDonald. He could only work with what he was given. On both "Another Midnight Run," and "Midnight Run Around," the story/script was pitiful. The Jack Walsh that was portrayed by Robert DeNiro in the initial Midnight Run movie would never have behaved like the ignorant person of the later films who repeatedly allowed his "prisoners" to escape on the most flimsy pretenses. Once I got around to "Midnight Run For Your Life," I was thoroughly annoyed. However that movie, while not up to the standard of the first film, was at least not as bad as the 2nd and 3rd stories. I almost felt sorry for McDonald because the Jack Walsh he was given to portray was truly a pitiful person, and he probably did the best he could with disastrous scripts. While I will probably watch the DeNiro film now and then, I doubt I'll ever be tempted to watch the other three again.

buy for the original, skip the sequels 18 Sept. 2013

The original Midnight Run movie is a comedy classic, with excellent performances by the lead actors. But, the sequels are a waste of pixels, time, and money.

well worth your time 10 Dec. 2011
By Peter R. Mcguire - Published on Amazon.com

Of course, the original Midnight Run is a classic. It is in my opinion, one of the best "buddy" movies of all time. Both Deniro and Grodin are in excellent form, and they were well matched in casting.

Many have criticized the Midnight Run tv movies. The criticisms are not well founded in my opinion. I found all three to be good solid comedies.

In the first movie, the acting is a bit over the top, as the cast tries to find their place in the roles, but the stories in all three films are solid and the acting gets better and better as the films roll along.

What makes the tv movies work is not necessarily the Deniro character (though Christopher Macdonald does his best and actually gets better as the movies progress, so that by the third film, he is comfortable in a role established by one of the finest actors of our generation).

No, it is the bad guys who make the movie work. In the first one, the con artist couple were hilarious. In the second, the country boy bad guy was wonderful and the supporting cast were just as good. and finally, in the third movie, the girl who is trying to "off" herself was very compelling.

Give these movies a chance. I ignored the bad reviews and as a result, was truly pleased.

One winner & two so-so movies 30 Sept. 2011
By paulscott - Published on Amazon.com

The original Midnight Run with Robert DeNiro & Charles Grodin is one of the funniest movies that I've seen & re-seen abou 6 times. It gets 5 Stars. The tough DeNiro & whimpy Grodin are a perfect "odd couple".
The sequels are weak in both writing & acting. They are probably worth watching once. I'll be generous & give the sequels 2&1/2 stars
