LOVED IT! I know people say it's predictable towards the end but they forget that in the beginning they actually thought that Ben was a good guy! So not so predictable! WATCH IT!

It was a good movie that I think is worth the movie theater money. It didn't blow me away but it was a solid movie that kept my attention throughout the entire film.

Runner Runner is OK. It was enjoyable. It wont win any awards but the story is interesting. Ben Affleck is really showing why he's a top actor and director, he's amazing! But you get the sense that this is child's play for him. JT is trying. He's needs a way to go to get his acting chops. And the chick you've seen in James Bond-Quantum of Solace and she's ok.Nothing to write home about. All in all, I say go because it keeps you engaged with beautiful scenary, decent dialogue and acting and an interesting story. I liked it.

I don't understand where all the negative comments are coming from! We go to at least two movies every week, so we have seen what's out there and would say so if it was bad. We both enjoyed it.
This was an entertaining movie.... not the best I've seen, but still entertaining. I enjoyed both Affleck and Timberlake in it, the plot was interesting and it had a good ending.
For you out there that have doubts or live in a city where ticket prices are ridiculous, wait for it to come out on pay-per-view. Otherwise, not bad!

Runner Runner’s glossy veneer and all-star cast are unable to save the film from a script that is all-to-familiar, uncompelling and unmemorable.
The problem with Brad Furman’s direction with Runner Runner is that it lacks any real pulse. The film promises at suspense, but in reality delivers muted excitement at best. It is hardly worthy of its R-rating and although constantly hinting at real danger, one is more likely to receive a few blows than be killed by crossing Block. What may have been an intriguing story is spoiled by a plot line is so familiar that you’ll see every “twist” coming. The writing is uninspired and the dialogue lacks any sensitivity in verbal expression, only furthered by the miscasting of Timberlake.
