Night of the Running Man
1995
Doing his job pays off for Las Vegas cab driver Jerry Logan (Andrew McCarthy) when he picks up a stranger who leaves a million dollars behind in the back seat. But with a hired hit man (Scott Glenn) tracking his every move, it's hardly free money. It seems Jerry's been drawn into a dangerous game that's destined to end in death for one of the players. Lee Wells also penned the screenplay to this thriller based on his own novel of the same name.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

An almost-forgotten 1995 (feels like 1985) chase movie that spends more time developing the callous villain than it does on the generic hero. The plot requires a series of amazing coincidences that allow the villain to resume the chase every time the hero escapes. As cheesy as it sometimes is, I'm a sucker for this kind of fun little thriller, and I'm impressed with Scott Glenn's portrayal of an ice-cold son of a bitch. He's no Anton Chigurh, but I still wouldn't want him chasing me.
