I heard lots of nagative reviews of "Runner, Runner" and I've decided to take in the movie and I didn't think it was bad at all. The movie was about the dark side of Online Gambling and it has a effect of a college student played by Justin Timberlake. whe he felt that he was robbed, he wnt down to Central America and he ran into Ben Affleck (in his first role since "Argo") anmd for Justin, things go downhill from there. IAs I sat there going from scene after another I was at the edge of the seat and I don'rt care what the critics say. I was in the minority who like this movie. That movie reminds me of a episode of "The Simpsons" inwhich Lisa got involve in online poker. that episode only stratch the surface. "Runner, Runner" goes deeper than that.
Liked the movie - wanted to be in Costa Rica myself.
Might sound weird but any movie that has modern living quarters I enjoy. Also meaning light background instead of dark, it lifts you up. New instead of old.
Its was a good movie.
Ben Affleck looked really good.
It's good if you can keep awake for the first half. The last half is better
