intense film noir 19 Jan. 2001
By "kenyon26" - Published on
Format: DVD
In my opinion, this was a nicely done film that pulled no punches. It showed the reality of a gamblers life, and how things don't always go smoothly, even in the movies. Ron Eldard and Courteney Cox gave great performances. Eldard played a convincing Edward, and I appreciated the emotion. Cox as Karina shows that she indeed has range as an actress. Not to give the movie away, but the delivery scene was intense, and Cox was excellent. The chemistry between the two was hot. John Goodman's performance as Deep Throat was good, but I'm not sure I was convinced that he could play someone as ruthless as the character was suppose to be. All in all, if you want to see how good an actor Ron Eldard is, or if you're wondering if Courteney Cox has range, check this movie out.

excellent 3 Aug. 2005
By Gil - Published on
Format: DVD
I happened across this movie the other night at my local pawnshop, and thought I would give it a try. This movie gives you a veiw of how deadly, addictive and destructive uncontrolled gambling can be. While I'm not a big John Goodman fan, I must say he played the part of "Deepthroat" exceptionally well. In fact, I don't think anyone could have played it as well as he. It was custom made just for him. Ron Eldard did great in his role as a runner and gambling addict, and he and Courtney Cox looked great together. I was disappointed that Joe Matenga's character was killed off so early. Also, Bokeem Woodbine did an excellent job as well.

Definately one to watch! 28 July 2001
By Rosemary Turner - Published on
I love this movie! It was funny at the start, then kept me on the edge of my seat in the middle, and worried about how everything was gonna turn out at the end. I wasn't sure whether I wanted the baby to be a girl which would be a happy ending, or a boy which would be more interesting. I won't spoil it for you by telling you how the ending worked out.
Ron Eldard was fantastic in this movie, as were Courteney Cox and John Goodman. Eldard in particular was very believable. He and Cox seemed to have good chemistry between them, although Cox's real life husband David Arquette plays a barman.
I would recomend this movie to anyone.

Great ending...Great film! 28 Feb. 2011
By PR GUY - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I loved this film...and at first I was somewhat disappointed with the ending. However, when I scrolled through the credits I found myself asking several questions...most notably..."what happened?" And that is why I gave this film all 5 stars. It is the riveting story of a disease called gambling. The performances by John Goodman and Courtney Cox are outstanding. I wish the character that Courtney played in this film had come into my life. What a dream. But, let's face it, this is Hollywood.

The Runner. 21 Mar. 2013
By Jose Lopez - Published on
Format: DVD
The Runner is an semi-Good film with Joe Mantegna and John Goodman holding it up,at Least for me. And I got this as an Gift from an Giftcard and For $1 no less! at the Dollar store.Although the DVD has no special features or Subtitles which is fine,and the cover is not any of the covers here on Amazon but one of the main Character in front of an Green car which sadly for me turned out to be an Mustang,an early 70's Mustang like the one in the Original Gone in 60 Seconds but in an more pleasing Green and an droptop.(I hate Mustangs.)The movie is an little slow and obivious and alot of truth to it as Nothing is sadder than an Gambler.The action is slow in coming but the plot and the end are good.Not one of the best but not the worst is the kindest I could say.
