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: As the movie becomes more howlingly ludicrous by the second, it's tempting -- and not in a cynical way, either -- to start reading it as a parody of pornographic video game violence.
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.
This is a very good film. It isn't like anything else. You are literally on the edge of your seat for the whole film; it's unrelenting. Awesome! I own it. Great flick. Not a child's film.
wow, this is a really great movie. Probably the most intense movie I have ever seen.
