Movie Review: Runner Runner (2013)

1 comment :

Title: Runner Runner
Language: English
Genre: Action/Crime/Drama
Running Time: 90 Minutes

When a poor college student who cracks an online poker game goes bust, he arranges a face-to-face with the man he thinks cheated him, a sly offshore entrepreneur. He is then spiraled into a world where gambling, drugs and bribery are happening around him and he is trapped in between. 

What do I think about it:-

When films such as these are shown in the cinema, you can't help but wonder what kind of quarter assed mentality was present to create such a cowardly bad film. 

You have a somewhat famous class plus a modern day casino-like theme and it gets screwed up from the first 10mins all the way till the end with lazy open ended scripts and a generally bad direction of filming.

Boring and anti climatic are understatements and you would soon wonder to what sort of extend of an idiot that the film makers take the audience for?

Get ready for 90 minutes of anti-climatic chases, bogus dialogues that make no sense and a storyline that is so monotoned and actionless that does no one justice and whatever budget used to made this movie must have been laundered somewhere else. -_-.

Plus, Ben Afflect was obviously trying very hard not to laugh at his scenes and what kind of gangster thug boss would try guys into a pond full of crocodile and then pulls him up and say he was just kidding. 

Nothing in this film is worth remembering or worth your time thinking as well.

Rating: actually, this film deserves no rating but if needed it would be 0/5

" So you are sitting there waiting from some really evil plan to use the main protagonist as a scape goat and hoping for some really clever plot twist to catch the real crook but ends up learning that money can just do everything." 

#runnerrunner logic, I am a powerful bad guy with money n stuff, when i throw u in pond with crocs and bring u back out and say sorry.

#runnerrunner logic, I am king of the land but i only got 2 notable bodyguards to keep and eye on a possible betrayer. 

#runnerrunner logic, I don get to sleep with the girl who is always by my side but i fly with her everywhere.
