Nowhere to Run is a thrilling action movie from 1993 that stars the legendary actor Jean-Claude Van Damme in the lead role. Directed by Robert Harmon, the film follows the story of a prison escapee named Sam Gillen who finds himself on the run from both the law and a gang of ruthless developers. At the beginning of the movie, Sam manages to break out of prison and makes his way through the woods. He stumbles upon a farm owned by the widow Clydie Anderson, played by Rosanna Arquette, and her two young children. Despite initially being wary of each other, Sam soon begins to help out around the farm in exchange for shelter and food.

As Sam grows closer to Clydie and her kids, he learns that the farm is under threat from a group of developers who want to buy up the land and turn it into a shopping mall. The developers are led by a corrupt businessman named Franklin Hale, played by Joss Ackland, and his sleazy son, played by Ted Levine.

Sam decides to take matters into his own hands and help Clydie and her family fight against the developers. However, things take a turn for the worse when Sam realizes that the corrupt local sheriff is also in cahoots with the developers and is determined to catch him and send him back to prison.

Throughout the movie, Sam must use his wits and martial arts skills to fight off the police and the developers' goons. As the stakes get higher, Sam also starts to develop romantic feelings for Clydie, leading to a climactic showdown between Sam and the developers that will determine the fate of the farm and its inhabitants.

The film's action-packed storyline, combined with Van Damme's signature fighting skills, make for an entertaining and thrilling viewing experience. The chemistry between Van Damme and Arquette is palpable, and the addition of Culkin's precocious child character adds a touch of heart and humor to the movie.

Nowhere to Run is definitely a must-watch for action movie fans and Van Damme aficionados alike. The film's balance of action and romance, as well as its themes of justice and fighting for what's right, make it a classic of the genre that still holds up today.

Nowhere to Run is a 2003 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 41.
