Synopsis

"De Niro and Grodin are just brilliant together…" – Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com

Jack Walsh (Robert De Niro) is a tough ex-cop turned bounty hunter. Jonathan "The Duke" Mardukas (Charles Grodin) is a sensitive accountant who embezzled $15 million from the mob, gave it to charity and then jumped bail. Jack's in for a cool $100,000 if he can deliver The Duke from New York to L.A. on time… and alive. Sounds like just another Midnight Run (a piece of cake in bounty hunter slang), but it turns into a cross-country chase. The FBI wants The Duke to testify, the mob wants him for revenge and Walsh wants him to just shut up. If someone else doesn't do the job, the two unlikely partners may end up killing each other in this hilarious, action-filled ride from producer-director Martin Brest (Beverly Hills Cop).

Why We Love It

“Shout Factory's imprint Shout Select knocks this release out of the park. I was blown away by the new image transfer as it exceeded even my most hopeful expectations and the audio is spot on. Add on an hour's worth of great interview material and you have one hell of a great Blu-ray release…If you've never seen this flick, it's time to treat yourself. Pops some corn, turn down the lights and get comfortable, 'Midnight Run' is highly recommended!” – Matthew Hartman, High-Def Digest

Midnight Run is a fantastic combination of buddy comedy, road movie and chase adventure. Technical merits are generally strong, the supplementary package appealing, and Midnight Run comes Highly recommended.” – Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-ray.com

“Shout Factory's long-awaited Collector's Edition is a solid effort, sporting a terrific new A/V presentation plus several great (and a few not-so-great) bonus features. It's a fairly well-rounded package that fans of this underrated gem will enjoy, hands down. Highly Recommended.” – Randy Miller III, DVD Talk

“If anyone came up to me and told me that Midnight Run is a perfect film, I would have very little reason to argue with that. It’s almost a happy accident considering that both Cher and Robin Williams were almost in it at one point or another. It could have worked, but it would have been something vastly different. It’s also a film that I believe not enough people have seen or haven’t seen in years, and Shout Select’s release is the perfect way back into it. With a top notch presentation and great extras, it’s a must.” – Tim Salmons, Midnight Run

“Shout! Factory has presented Midnight Run with a new 2K scan, and the results are fantastic.” – Michael Tatlock, Mind of Tatlock
