This is like my most wanted movie, like ever. Always think about it from time to time. Saw it once, don't remember on what, maybe VHS, but just really want to. Bluray, any streaming services? and if not, my god, Why?

Because it's Run? Lots of movies haven't seen the light of day on any format. Or you can grab a copy from EBay. Not sure if those are legit or not.

EDIT: Not sure why posting a link from EBay is linking somewhere else. But check EBay.

Looks like it's a Korean release. I'm sure it's legit though.

I've been waiting for this one also. I actually purchased that DVD copy off eBay & it is a PAL bootleg.

Speaking of which Light of Day with MJ Fox has never even been released on DVD I don't think.

"Run" would be a good candidate for a Mill Creek cheapie release.

Speaking of "light of day", that's another title that has yet to see a release beyond its original VHS release in 1987.

It was Michael J. Fox, Joan Jett, a fairly big budget studio film and yet no DVD or Blu-ray. Probably has to do with securing the music rights from Bruce Springsteen.

I'd prefer Light of Day more than Run. Yeah, but they both would seem like good Mill Creek candidates for release. And if Mill Creek can successfully release the entire Miami Vice series with its original music, they can surely do the same with Light of Day.

Miami Vice has a pretty sizable audience who might be willing to buy the show on Blu-ray. Light of Day was a box office dud that has been virtually forgotten since its release.

Anyone know what this was rated when it came out? I can't seem to find it...

R. It's right under the title on its IMDb Page.

Huh. I missed that when I looked. Thanks.
Such a fun movie and as adrenaline inducing as I remember. Dempsey plays desperation well. Love the cheesy end kill scene.

Sorry, I should have clarified. The DVD was authored NTSC but it is the sped up PAL version.
