Runner Runner (15)

Crime, Drama, Thriller

When a poor college student who cracks an online poker game goes bust, he arranges a face-to-face with the man he thinks cheated him, a sly offshore entrepreneur.

The critical consensus

Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck give their best poker faces but ultimately fail to convince you to gamble your cash away on this limp, unoriginal story of a man out of his depth.

**(*)(*)(*)Stephen Kelly, Total Film, 24/09/2013

A watchable yet utterly by-the-numbers thriller.

***(*)(*)Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor, 28/09/2013

Mind games and high stakes manoeuvrings ensue. The cast are excellent but the script reveals its hand too soon. There isn’t surprise or suspense in the third act.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 26/09/2013

Once all of the film’s cards have been revealed, it’s hard not to feel a little cheated.

**(*)(*)(*)Rob Carnevale, The List, 26/09/2013

An insipid, incoherent thriller which trades solely in slick one liners.

David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 26/09/2013
