Can't say I'm too thrilled with the name of this movie, but it's nice to see Ben Affleck come into his own and take the lead as the big screen villain. Runner, Runner is a new crime thriller from the Lincoln Lawyer director Brad Furman, which follows a college student who gets caught up in the corrupt world of online gambling after he tracks down a site that cheated him out of a big poker win.
A businessman (Ben Affleck) with an offshore online gambling operation recruits curious, struggling college student Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake) to join his little world after he discovers the corrupt nature of his business. Promised a life of luxury, Richie takes the opportunity, but finds himself in trouble when the FBI turns him into an informant. Anthony Mackie, Gemma Arterton and Ben Schwartz also star in the film which will hit theaters September 27, 2013.
Look any good?
