This was a surprise!

While things started off a tad slow, things quickly changed. This was very well done. Ben Affleck was fanastic. No doubt his best role ever. Justin Timberlake is a natural! This is a very good movie and the fact that it is based on a true story makes it all the more fasinating.

Runner Runner

Excellent movie. Held our attention all the way through. Both actors, Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck were convincing. The story was compelling and to wait for the end and see how Justin gets out of the trouble he is in was very intriging. The story is well written and the viewer gets knowledge of how gambling/cons can go as high as it does in this move. Well done.

Run Away

With its flimsy and convoluted plot and thoroughly unlikable characters, this movie failed to hold my attention through the first hour. I rarely walk out of a film, but for Runner Runner I made the exception. If I could have gotten a refund I would. Skip Runner Runner.

Is there anything J.T. doesn't do well ?

Yes it's true this is no Oscar worthy film but it is a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half. I at least didn't walk out feeling I wasted my money . Justin T. Acted his ***off ! Well done J.T. Ben Affleck did a credible job but as another reviewer put it, he hardly broke a sweat. But it wasn't his acting, it was the part he had that was the problem if there was one. There just wasn't an awful lot to work with. All in all though it was an entertaining movie, and let's face it, we all have to pay our bills.

Unable to give a rating because of an emergency I only saw half of the picture. The part I saw make me want to see the entire movie.
