We, my husband and I, wanted to go to the movies yesterday and we chose Runner Runner because it suited our schedule.
I’m not a fan of Ben Affleck, in my opinion he is not a very good actor. In Runner Runner his stiff being suited the role of a bad guy (but it doesn’t mean I like him…), so it was almost okay. Justin Timberlake was also okay. Gemma Arterton was okay. Everything was almost okay.
Runner Runner started slowly. Some action happened and it gave the movie a little push. The place, Costa Rica, was exotic and interesting. The evil guy was caught, the good guy gets the girl and so on. I can’t belive I’m saying this, but the best part of this movie was actually Ben Affleck and his cool and rigid performance. And It’s still a little hard for me to think Justin Timberlake as an actor, but I’ve seen worse.
Another mediocre movie, not very intriguing or special, just average. It was almost like routine, no passion, no fervency.
I went, I watched, I’m not going to watch again.
