Audience Reviews for Eddie Macon's Run

I mainly watched this movie because I'm a big fan of The Dukes Of Hazzard & it had John Schneider but Kurt Douglas stole the show.He was great as the beyond determined cop trying to capture Eddie Macon & prove to himself that he isn't over the hill.Eddie Macon's Run is an OK movie & if nothing else it's worth watching just to see Kurt Douglas's performance.Now if I can only get the theme song out of my head....... Don't you know that I love you?
