When we left the theater my husband said "it was better than I thought it would be". Since neither of us had the urge to watch Sandra bounce around in space for 2 hours, nor did we want to see a kids movie, we choose Runner Runner. Was it 100% believable? No, but it is the movies, and I doubt that Batman actually exists or Transformers rule the earth. It was somewhat predictable, but what movies aren't these days. No it is not the best I have ever seen, but it was interesting enough and it was enjoyable.

Really wasn't that great. Not impressive at all. Ben Affleck was solid and Gemma Arterton was hot, but that was about it. I like Justin Timberlake but I think he should stick to Saturday Night Live.

My husband & I saw this yesterday and we loved it. Of course Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck were amazing! They are the best. Would definitely recommend this movie. There are very few movies I would go see a 2nd time. This is one I would.

A story of a college age gambler who hooks up with a pro who runs a site. Timberlake doesn't realize how corrupt Affleck's character really is. There are some pretty good twists and turns that make it interesting to watch. Too much profanity for children. Acting was good. Affleck is always on top of his game. Timberlake is not as talented an actor, but pulled this one off pretty well.

I rate this a C+. I really wanted to like this and went in with great expectations/hopes. Yet for me the story fell flat. It just kinda jumped foward from scene to scene and didn't develop well. It has a good premise but the jouney to the payoff left me wanting more. More from the story, more from the actors, and just plain more. Too bad because I think this could have been a really good movie. I say wait for Redbox and enjoy.
