About the Movie
Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck star in this high-stakes crime thriller where the lure of easy money is the riskiest bet of all. When Princeton grad student Richie Furst (Timberlake) believes he’s been swindled by an online poker site, he heads to Costa Rica to confront gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Affleck), the man he thinks is responsible. But Richie will soon face the ultimate power play as he finds himself caught between Block’s promises of unlimited wealth and the zealous FBI agent (Anthony Mackie) trying to bring him down.
It's not good.
There is nothing even mildly memorable or even diverting about Runner Runner. An immensely by-the-numbers thriller from the director of the far superior Lincoln Lawyer, it's over before you even know it. At 90 minutes the film feels edited to seem so fast-paced that it feels rushed and clumsy.
Performances are all adequate but the poor script prevents any chance of success.
Run away from this movie.
i can't believe 3 of my favourite stars did a shxxxt like this…… story is loose, no big scenes…. old tricks …..
