What makes Midnight Run so remarkable are its principals, and the supporting cast that keep the audience titillated, laughing and excited for the film's entire 128 minute-running time.

An extremely satisfying action-comedy, one that STILL hasn't fully received its due.

The interplay between the two leads is pure gold.

Who said movies always have to be original? This one is redeemed by execution and brilliant talent: De Niro, Grodin, director Martin Brest, composer Danny Elfman, most of the cast and technicians.
July 30, 2013
A thoroughly engaging action film, Midnight Run boasts a superb cast that transforms its rather mundane story line into something memorable, funny, and moving.

Wonder why De Niro doesn't do comedy this good any more.

July 30, 2013
A performance like De Niro's, in a well-made entertainment like Midnight Run, is cheap at any price. And capable of restoring the audience's faith in the form.
July 30, 2013
Midnight Run is an inside-out, upside-down buddy film and comedic cross- country caper. It also is the entertaining excuse for Robert De Niro, the Method actor of his generation, to cut loose and play things light for a change.
July 30, 2013
As with all the best road movies -- and this is one of the best -- the picture really moves, as a simple air trip from New York to LA turns into a saga of trains and automobiles, car crashes, and skirmishes with the FBI and [other] interested parties.

De Niro is nervily hilarious and Grodin nervelessly exceptional in Midnight Run, a formula buddy movie exalted to insta-classic status by their performances.

July 30, 2013
De Niro is probably the most intense and idiosyncratic actor of his generation; Midnight Run may be the most conventional movie I've ever seen.
July 30, 2013
Brace yourself for a movie joyride that sends you home reeling from thrills, laughter and the pleasure of honest sentiment.
July 30, 2013
Grodin and De Niro are different kinds of actors, but they share a knack for detail and a gift for understatement that keeps their scenes together crackling.
July 30, 2013
A cut above your average buddy flick.
July 30, 2013
The pleasures of Midnight Run come mainly from its acting.
July 30, 2013
Midnight Run touches on one of the great mysteries of the movies: How is it that the tritest material can come to life when touched by the right director and the right actors?

Funny, unpredictable and refreshingly adult.

De Niro e Grodin, com seus estilos radicalmente diferentes de interpretação, funcionam surpreendentemente bem juntos, elevando a história formulaica e transformando-a em algo interessante e divertido.
