on January 7
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.
I did not know much about Runner Runner before watching the movie, other than that it was supposed to be a thriller about online gaming, but that was about it. When we sat down to watch the film, I found it a little bit all over the place at first while they were introducing the characters.
Runner Runner was entertaining, but slightly predictable; they could have done a better job with back story on a few of the characters, but overall hubby and I enjoyed it and were glad that we saw it.
