Showdown

The Runaways

Best running in film

Add a list or tag with showdown:running

Watching people act-while-running is hands down one of the best outcomes of the invention of cinema. We want your ten favorite films featuring scenes of characters literally running, whether for their life, for love, for laughs, to train, to win, to out-run a plane/boulder/flowing lava, or to flee the law. Extra points for a mid-run jump over pretty much anything: turnstile, fence, fire, water, airport security check, or the improbable gap between two buildings. Bonus points for running-while-injured, or running on a moving vehicle of any sort. Be sure to describe the scene in the notes. See you at the finish line.
