Running Scared Reviews

A functional 1986 actioner about two wisecracking Chicago cops (Gregory Hines and Billy Crystal) and their vendetta against a Latino crime lord (Jimmy Smits).

No more original or eventful than an average police TV show, so it must sink or swim on the moment-by-moment cleverness of the dialog and the behavioral talents of Hines and Crystal. Fortunately, these elements prove formidable.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Wisecracking their way through tough situations and bickering like an old married couple, Hines and Crystal succeed in creating a new buddy team that ranks with the likes of Robert Redford and Paul Newman.

Crystal and Hines do flavour the film with genuine warmth, and despite some cheap gags, work well together to produce some truly funny moments.

Fantastica Daily

A breezily entertaining buddy-cop movie with too much cutesy shtick for its own good. Gregory Hines is OK, but Billy Crystal is never believable as a Chicago cop.

Pre-Lethal Weapon mid-80s buddy flick before

Relentlessly competent in a TBS Saturday afternoon kind of way.

Crystal and Hines are a great double act. Laughs aplenty.

The most appealing thing about this movie is the charisma and good humour delivered by the two leads.

This genre is so overpopulated that it hardly seems like we need one more example, and yet "Running Scared" transcends its dreary roots and turns out to be a lot of fun.

"Running Scared" tries to be a light comedy in a violent, comic-book world. That's a difficult juggling act, and director Peter Hyams doesn't pull it off.

Has all the logic and transitional ease of a Pokémon-style card game played by 5-year-olds who don't understand the rules, so they make up their own as they go.

Another, thoroughly depressing demonstration of the extent to which television now dictates the style and the manners of so many of the movies we see in theaters.
