About the Movie
Slick, fast-paced and brutally shocking, this gritty action filled movie will jolt your senses like nothing else you've ever experienced. Struggling mob hand Joey Gazelle (Paul Walker- "The Fast and the Furious," "Into the Blue") finds his life turned inside-out when a "hot" weapon he's in charge of concealing goes missing. With two mafia families and a team of crooked cops watching his every move, Joey sets out on a chilling, bloody pursuit, maneuvering his way through a horrific web of creeps and criminals, praying he can retrieve the gun and make it home to his wife (Vera Farmiga- "The Departed," "The Manchurian Candidate") and child -- alive.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A ferociously energetic piece of filmmaking, Running Scared makes the seedy Vegas milieu of writer-director Wayne KramerWayne Kramer's first feature, The Cooler, look as tasteful as The Sound of Music.
Rotten: There's clearly supposed to be tension between Joey's good and bad sides. Sure, he's a mobster, but he's also a family man, which makes him... gray. (Not black and white = very sophisticated.)
Rotten: This overlong fantasy of urban violence is so far over the top -- you might as well be watching a computer monitor while somebody else has a high time playing the video game Grand Theft Auto.
Rotten: Kramer seems to be aping Quentin Tarantino's brilliant tangents in Pulp Fiction, but he doesn't have Tarantino's imagination or gift for dialogue.
Best (RAW; GRITTY) movie i have ever seen
This film is great, probably the best graphic; gritty movie i have ever seen. Running Scared is a hell of a ride, watch, (w/ popcorn, drinks, candy) sit back, relax, and enjoy !
Paul Walker really showed his acting skills in this; it had me on the edge of my seat every minute
