I enjoyed this movie. The acting is fine enough and the story is good enough, so you feel like you're not wasting your money. Not a "must go", but worth seeing. The critics were overly harsh. However, there are much better movies out right now that I would go to before this one - Captain Phillips, Gravity, Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Peter. I would suggest seeing any of these three before Runner Runner. They're in a different league.

Really this movie should have gone straight to Rentals. I'm a Senior so my tickets are 6 bucks. Thank God. Just wait till the DVD comes out, have some friends over, drink some beer, "might be better with a slight buzz" and kick back. Not really boring, but dang close. Thank God it's only 90 minutes or so. 2 Stars..

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.

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.
