Midnight Run

A surprisingly successful pairing of Robert De Niro (a bounty hunter) and Charles Grodin (a criminal), who travels cross-country from Chicago to Los Angeles taking the long journey in order to send Grodin to jail. The pair run into more than their fair share of troubles, which includes being confronted more than once by the suspicious FBI. Midnight Run is unexpectedly entertaining; Grodin and De Niro's comic flare greatly contribute to this action film. A nice script and great action sequences.
