Movie Info

An escaped convict fights for his rights while hiding out from the law in this action drama. Sam Gillen (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is a thief who, despite his criminal past, is an essentially decent man; he ended up behind bars after taking a murder rap for his partner. Sam escapes from prison in a daring jailbreak, and he hides out on a remote farm while on the run from police. A young boy named Mookie (Kieran Culkin) finds the fugitive and takes him in; it seems that the farm belongs to his … More

Critic Reviews for Nowhere to Run

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (15) | DVD (5)

A relentlessly corny and shamelessly derivative vehicle.

Variety
Top Critic

When Van Damme is doing what he does best -- narcissistically displaying his body and thumping the bad guys -- the film works reasonably well.

Time Out
Top Critic

Several members of the Astor Plaza audience yesterday afternoon could not contain their merriment when, in the middle of the film, Mr. Van Damme's character identified himself as a lawyer.

New York Times
Top Critic

Except for a few short bursts here and there, and one extended scene during the climax, the film is mostly talk. And since Van Damme's range as a dramatic actor is marginal at best, this is a problem.

ReelViews
Top Critic

While it boasts better supporting actors and technical credits than other Van Damme projects, the film nonetheless founders, a victim of its own lugubrious pace and misguided efforts at turning the bulging Belgian into a romantic lead.

Washington Post
Top Critic

This is the kind of movie that is so witlessly generic that the plot and title disappear into a mist of other recycled plots and interchangeable titles.

Van Damme hits a high-note for once

March 31, 2005
Moviehole

All in all, it is a pretty good action film and it could be a breakthrough for Van Damme.

Laramie Movie Scope

The best aspect of Nowhere to Run is some inventive camera work from director Robert Harmon. Too bad he didn't have a better script to work with.

If you don't expect much (and the developer vs. land owner plot is ridiculous) you may be surprised at what's here.

Audience Reviews for Nowhere to Run

½

If you were a hot woman in the 90s, chances are you were on a Van Damme movie. Van Damme also had plenty of good actors as the bad guys, in this case Ted Levine, it is a shame that the script is just complete crap and just an excuse for Van Damme to bed said hot woman (Arquette) and beat the crap out of said bad guy in climatic final battle, but right after a bunch of pointless stuff that you don't care about.

In "Nowhere To Run," Jean-Claude Van Damme plays as Sam, an escaped convict who ends up staying on a small farm with Clydie (Rosanna Arquette) and her two kids. However, he finds out that he has some new enemies while he's staying there, including a jealous cop and some men who are trying to take away the farm that Clydie and her two kids live on.
I recommend anybody who likes Van Damme movies to get "Nowhere To Run." If you aren't familiar with Van Damme's other movies, this would be a good movie to get to get you familiar. It doesn't have as much fighting in it as most of his other movies do, but it certainly doesn't lack in action. You'll see some great action sequences such as when Van Damme is trying to find a place to run from the police by riding a motorcycle. It has more drama than most of the other Van Damme movies, but it's still a good one. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. Van Damme just rocks. Sad to see him getting older :-(

A pretty plain action movie but with enough of a story to keep you interested for the run time.

More of the usual bone-headed action fare from JCVD. Not his worst effort, and Roseanna Arquette is appealing, but it's all so very "so what?"
