Very Good entertainment!!!

The movie was not bad, just predictable for me - I knew how it was going to end early into the movie, just not the manner in which it would happen.

I saw this movie on the satellite and went and bought a copy. Good thing, because they have not bother issuing it on DVD.

Every character is well portrayed and the two villains (Scott Glenn and John Glover) are brilliant. The only villain character who can top Scott Glenn is Anthony Hopkins. Yes, Glenn is THAT good as a psychopathic killer.

The plot is clever and there are no idle moments during the lenght of this film. In fact, you wish it would last longer.

Movie companies are strange entities. Sometimes they can create real treasures such as this movie. Others come to mind, as an example: "Thursday" (get this: Unavailable except from private sellers; up to several hundred dollars [!] for a new copy); "Fargo," "Blood Simple," "Bound," "Montana," "Knockaround Guys," and "The Salton Sea," to mention just a few.

"Night of the Running Man" should be issued on DVD and I hope somebody up there in dreamland will read this comments and decide to do it.

If you're a movie nut like me you often comb the lower rungs of video stores looking for neglected gems from bygone eras: ROLLING THUNDER from the 70's. THE MEAN SEASON, THE HIT, COHEN & TATE from the 1980's. And THE NIGHT OF THE RUNNING MAN from the mid-90's.

It has a plot line that I am very enamored with: "regular guy finds a pile of money and complications ensue."

It has great performances from Scott Glenn and John Glover and also from Andrew McCarthy. There are some excruciatingly painful to watch moments in this film, scenes where characters have their feet submerged in boiling water,have their necks broken, etc etc; almost all of the scenes with Scott Glenn really have a nasty energy. He is an iconic-looking and leathery faced actor and I would love to see him get more flashy roles such as his part here as a vengeful and greedy hit man. he commands the screen whenever he appears and he isn't afraid to play a completely unlikable character in a very straightforward way. There are no cute actor tricks--playing to the gallery and softening the role.

What A Great Film!, especially if you're into films where you enjoy rooting for the "good guy/bad guy".

The question is, are you into films where you enjoy watching to see if your guy (the one that you've now staked all of your emotions in) can by the end of the film, outsmart the "very, very, very bad guy"?

If your answer is yes!, then this is most definitely your film.

In this film Scott Glenn plays one of the best villians that I've ever seen in any movie, period!

You will soon realize while watching the film that, you would never want him coming after you.

The story (in a nutshell) puts the before mentioned "good guy/bad guy" (Andrew McCarthy) in the position where he acquired some very hot mob money. It will soon be quite apparent to you that these are monetary funds that he should have thought twice about taking.

But the challenge now will be, will he (McCarthy) get to keep this mob money, also will he get to keep the well placed beautiful girl, and will he ultimately outsmart the relentless, brilliant, sadistic bad guy hired by the mob to get their money back (Glenn).

So fight fans, will you tune in to see if he will be captured, and to see if he will possibly die in a way that I can't go into here (being that Amazon is a family oriented website).

That's the simple story, but trust me it's told in a powerful (action packed) way that you (the viewers) will never forget.

This movie deserves a good look, and it's a great movie to see with a friend. Or hell, see it alone, just see it.

It rates every one of the 5 stars. Enjoy!

This film is set in Las Vegas, a city dependent on tourism and gambling. With this foundation you can imagine the people it attracts. A man leaves a gambling casino with a small suitcase and hails a cab. Pursuers in another car chase this cab. After it crashes the man is struck by this car and killed. The pursuers do not retrieve the suitcase he carried! The cab driver leaves and takes the suitcase: it is filled with a million dollars in hundred-dollar bills. [That would weight about 32 lbs (14.5kg) and would not be as easily carried as shown in this film.]

The pursuers figure out the cabbie took the money. The casino manager hires a collector to get it back. This collector displays the identification of a Las Vegas police officer. He's not afraid of a mugger! The cabbie buys a train ticket but is easily tracked, even when he changes his destination to Los Angeles. Another collector picks him up in a taxicab, and takes him to a safe house. There is a scene of gratuitous torture. A miracle occurs, and Jimmy escapes. He winds up in a hospital for his wounds. Nobody looks inside the large bag he carried! [Believable?] A nurse tries to help him and gets entangled. [Believable?] There is a sideshow dealing with disloyal employees. The two collectors join forces. One is eliminated and Jimmy escapes to the cellar (no exit!). The fight results in an unexpected ending. Jimmy and the nurse discard the collectors [in a method that will attract a lot of attention!], and are last seen buying a ticket for Rio de Janeiro. While there is no extradition treaty, certain forces have the connections there to accomplish their revenge. Again, nobody looks inside the suitcase. [Believable?] The fact is that Customs searches both incoming and outgoing baggage. It is a crime to take out more than $10,000 without declaring it. All in all, it is an action movie that won't strain your brain.
