Nowhere to Run ★½ 1993 (R)

Kickboxer with heart seeks cross-over movie to establish real acting career. Unfortunately, even if such a movie existed, Van Damme wouldn't know what to do with it. Arquette plays the damsel in distress, facing eviction from the family farm with her two small children. Fortunately for Van Damme's escaped convict character, she is also a very lonely widow (nudge, nudge). He saves the day by abusing the daylights out of the big bad bankers, yet also finds time to play surrogate dad. Whatta guy. 95m/C VHS, DVD . Jean-Claude Van Damme, Rosanna Arquette, Kieran Culkin, Tiffany Taubman, Joss Ackland, Ted Levine; D: Robert Harmon; W: Joe Eszterhas, Leslie Bohem, Randy Feldman; C: David Gribble, Doug Milsome, Michael A. Benson; M: Mark Isham.
