    Great release of maybe DeNiro's most FUN film...

    Obviously De Niro has made "better" or "more respected" films, but it's hard to think of a film of his that's just more plain fun than Midnight Run. He's obviously having a ball, and his chemistry with Charles Grodin is off the charts. If you haven't seen it, I envy you for the fun ride you're about to partake. This Shout special edition is, to date, the best and most complete release and is definitely a must buy for any fans of the film. The transfer on the video side is very solid, not great, but certainly very good. The bonus material is also loaded, though the "interview" with De Niro is little more than just a few comments. However the interviews with others, including Grodin, are much longer and more in-depth.

    Robert De Niro is my favorite actor of all time. I have been waiting for this blu-ray to come out for a very long time, and it does not disappoint. Amazing remastering of one of the most underrated movies of all time. De Niro stars as a bounty hunters in a hilarious but endearing role. Amazing story. This blu-ray is a must own for a fan of any classic action comedy movies or any fans of Bobby De Niro.

    Shout Factory has done an incredible job lately, and one of their most triumphant achievements has been releasing this under-appreciated classic on blu ray! Great PQ/AQ, and a fun collection of bonus features make this a must own for any fan of wild action fun.

    A Late 80's Gem

    Easily one of the best "buddy cop" type movies from the 80's, even though it didn't feature two cops. This movie featured Grodin at the top of his comedic game while showcasing that Deniro could hold his own doing comedy. AV quality is pretty good to great for a late 80's film. Highly recommended.

    This is one of Robert De Niro's first comedy roles and he is hilarious. Charles Grodin is funny as well. The constant back and forth makes for some great dialogue and one liners from almost every main star, especially Denis Farnia. A great movie!

    This was always one of my favorite movies, and I was more than happy to replace my HD-DVD copy and (finally) retire my HD-DVD player once and for all, thanks to this stellar blu-ray edition. It's a hilarious movie and easily De Niro's best comedic performance.

    Great movie but this blu ray edition is mediocre and disappointing .there is only some interviews as extra features ,no multiples languages or subtitles to choose and no making of either ! The previous DVD edition is better for language option.

    Recent convert to this Robert DeNiro/Charles Grodin action comedy, looks great on brand new Shout Factory release. Another stellar release from the boutique distributor. And of course a unbeatable price form Best Buy.

    Midnight Run is a fantastic combination of buddy comedy, road movie and chase adventure. Audio/visual merits are generally strong, and the disc features a decent supplemental feature package. Highly recommended.

    I watched this movie when it was out on VHS and I loved it then. I bought it in a second when I saw it online on at Best Buy on Bluray. This is a very good, modern day classic!

    Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin are hilarious in this bounty hunter movie with unexpected plot twists. The two stars play off of each other and show that it must have been a blast filming this picture.

    This movie has a good cast. Yaphet Kotto, Charles Grodin, Joe Pantoliano. Worth checking out, definitely better than the analyze movies, and "meet the" movies as far as DeNiro in a comedy role.

    This is the best version of Midnight Run available for home video, especially when you factor in the new interviews with the cast members. Definitely recommended to any fan of this film.

    The disc I received was for Region B and is not compatible with USA players, only those in Africa or the Far East so I never saw it. I have seen the movie in the past so I know it's good.

    Robert De Niro is great in this, he plays a bounty hunter having trouble transporting his bounty(Charles Grodin). With his share of obstacles in his way, this film is a fun ride.
