That's not Costa Rica

It was actually filmed in slummy Puerto Rico. Costa Rica is way nicer so don't let the images scare you. Second, Ben Affleck made a great bad guy and played the part well. I actually ended up liking this movie and thought I wouldn't because of the bad reviews. It is worth seeing, especially for the chicken eating pet crocs. I love the ending too.

Runner Runner has some great twists and turns in the plot it keeps up its energy throughout the movie and the ending is Classic. If you like a Drama with great a subject line go see this one.

very anti-climatic

If you are a Timberlake or Affleck film, you will like, not love the movie. Timberlake and Affleck are both believable in their roles. However the movie left me wanting more. It fell flat about 10 minutes into it and never picked up. When it got to the end of the movie, which I hadn't realized it was really the end, I was thinking this is it, here's where the twist will come in. NOPE. Walked out feeling more should have been done with the plot.

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!

Pretty Decent

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.
