Critic Reviews of "Runner Runner"Rolling StoneOctober 11, 2013
The actors hit the jackpot, but only in terms of their paychecks. The audience gets a tension-free, tight-assed, Casino ripoff that leaves them thoroughly fleeced.Chicago ReaderOctober 10, 2013
The mannered speech is fun, the players are charismatic, and director Brad Furman maintains an agreeably brisk pace.GrantlandOctober 04, 2013
It looks like everybody's lying, and that's only because the acting is pretty bad.NewsdayOctober 04, 2013
The movie mostly wants to look timely and seem topical. Instead, it feels irrelevant.ReelViewsOctober 04, 2013
Various subplots are given short shrift and the whole thing feels more like a Cliff's Notes version of a longer piece than an actual finished motion picture.Us WeeklyOctober 04, 2013
Just when it seems like the writing can't get any lazier, Richie fills in the narrative blanks via a voice-over that squeezes in every gambling metaphor this side of Las VegasThe Film StageJune 22, 2016
There may have been a good movie somewhere in Runner Runner but it's not even in sight as it stands nows.CinemixtapeApril 17, 2016
The story is so inconsequential that the best performances in the world would hardly make a dent in its snooze-worthy screenplay.Concrete PlaygroundFebruary 28, 2014
Ultimately, Runner Runner is really just a movie designed to provide some background noise as you update your Facebook.Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)December 27, 2013
Mixes the vacuous and tedious, slick and predictable, smarmy and smug. There's gambling lingo, racism or sleaziness spouting from the mouths of male a**holes, conversations steaming with banal bluster, and tropical scenes out of perfume and liqueur ads.Big HollywoodDecember 24, 2013
A bland retelling of a familiar story that lies in the shadow of smarter and sleeker films like 'The Firm.'Reel Film ReviewsNovember 13, 2013
...it's ultimately impossible to downplay the rampant ineffectiveness of virtually every aspect of the proceedings.
