Editorial Reviews

Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck star in this high-stakes crime thriller where the lure of easy money is the riskiest bet of all. When Princeton grad student Richie Furst (Timberlake) believes he's been swindled by an online poker site, he heads to Costa Rica to confront gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Affleck), the man he thinks is responsible. But Richie will soon face the ultimate power play as he finds himself caught between Block's promises of unlimited wealth and the zealous FBI agent (Anthony Mackie) trying to bring him down.

3.0 out of 5 stars SUPER RICH WORKS FOR ME November 7, 2013
Format:DVD
Ritchie (Justin Timberlake) is a student at Princeton. He goes on line and gambles away his tuition money, and afterwards realizes that unlicensed off shore on line gambling web sites are dishonest. GOSH! Richie gathers the statistical evidence and travels to paradise to meet up with Ivan Block (Ben Affleck) the owner of the web site. Block recognizes Richie's genius and invites him in for a big slice of the pie. Richie recruits some of his nerd friends to help him out. About 30 minutes into the story the FBI (Anthony Mackie) confronts Richie and wants him to be an informant...or else he can never go back to New Jersey and maybe New York. Richie is faced with a dilemma of being super rich in paradise with Ivan's girlfriend Gemma Arterton clinging to him or Newark. Oh what to do, what to do.

No one plays for free.

The film is mostly a light action drama. Timberlake and Affleck looked good on the screen and tried to give some life to a tired script but only succeeded in appearing unconvincing in their roles, especially Affleck. The dialog had some good lines, but needed more. It wasn't a film that I could get into. I couldn't help think about "21" which is a far better gambling film.

When you play against a computer designed to take your money, it isn't gambling.

Works as a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. Implied sex. No nudity.

Justin Timberlake is the best well-rounded entertainer in the world. Love him or hate him, he's the closest thing to this generation's version of Michael Jackson. Odds are, you have some kind of firm opinion of his music, and regardless of that opinion he's still a massive moneymaking machine. His fans are loyal and no doubt enthusiastic about his recent return to music, but the gap between his albums is due largely to his ambition to become a serious actor. Even though Timberlake is no Jamie Foxx, he's still a relatively accomplished actor - starring several memorable roles, including The Social Network, Friends with Benefits, and In Time. Obvious, some of his films are better than others, but he still appears to improve from role to role, forcing many people to wonder if his future is in movies or music. In any event, Timberlake is back with yet another flick, starring opposite Ben Affleck, in the drama, Runner Runner.

Directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer), Runner Runner stars Justin Timberlake as Richie Furst, a bright young Princeton student that turns to online gaming to help pay the bills for his expensive tuition. In the process of attempting to win money in an online poker game, he discovers he's being cheated by one of the world's most lucrative gambling websites. Furst makes his way to Costa Rica, where the site's owner, Ivan Block (Ben Affleck), runs the site. Impressed with his ambition, Block hires Furst to bring in new clientele and make some serious money. However, Furst is quickly approached by an FBI agent named Shavers (Anthony Mackie), telling him that if he continues down a dark path of working for Block, he will be banned from returning to the United States.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable, literally December 31, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I can't believe I spent 14.99 to watch this movie. Justin Timberlake is like a robot with no soul in this movie. He knows everything, he's like a computer and knows all the angles, lol. He spends his whole bank roll on one online poker game, but is some how able to fly to Costa Rica to met the Boss of the online gambling company... yeah right! Then the boss brings him in to make millions, just like in real life, lol. The movie is shot in HD, but when you get to the Costa Rica scenes it looks like it was filmed with a cell phone camera. I stopped watching it half way through.

2.0 out of 5 stars Eh..... December 29, 2013
By brooke
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Not great....and I am a huge fan of each of these actors. Good story line but not enough investment/development in the characters to engage me in their world so I didn't care what happened. That seems like a director issue....

2.0 out of 5 stars Fear the conscience of a magical unicorn October 4, 2013
Format:DVD
You should know going in that "Runner Runner" is not a good film no matter how you try to look at it. The most enjoyable aspect of the film is going into it thinking it's rated PG-13 and then being pleasantly surprised that it's actually rated R. Despite its rating, the film feels like a completely saturated version of the genre counterparts it likely borrows from. Films like "The Sting," "Casino," and "Ocean's Eleven." "Runner Runner" is like a tasteless alcoholic concoction that no amount of shaking or stirring could possibly add any sort of flavor to.

Justin Timberlake can't seem to catch a break when it comes to acting. He may be a part of projects that initially have potential, but nothing has really gained any steam other than his performance in "The Social Network." "Runner Runner" is no different. While Timberlake is at the front of the pack, you never really seem to care how Richie's life ends up during the film. Most of that blame can be placed on the writers as Timberlake seems to do the best with what's in front of him, but if you're carrying a film it's your job to make the audience interested. You're the face on promotional material, you're the one doing every press junket, and the film's success will likely hinder on your performance. Timberlake does seem to have natural charisma, but it's as if he's too lackadaisical to fully capitalize on it and most of the films he chooses to star in suffer because of it.

The film mostly feels like a never ending string of F-words thanks to Ben Affleck. When you first see Ivan Block, he's indirectly offering some elderly clients fellatio from his masseuse in order to smooth over a transaction. The character is very stereotypical after that; a kingpin who never lifts a finger since the entire island is on his pay roll.
