News & Interviews for Running Scared
Critic Reviews for Running Scared
With audiences jaded by the usual sex and splatter, do the filmmakers have no qualms about juicing up proceedings with edgy but troubling material which clearly needs more conscientious handling? Apparently not.
Presumably patterned after Robert Rodriguez's Sin City, but substantially more graphic, there is surely an audience for this empty brutality, but you would not want to know anyone to whom this picture appeals.
Wayne Kramer's latest film is a hard-hitting, visceral, over-the-top extravaganza of blood and bullets that doesn't let up for one second.
The action throughout Running Scared is involving and fast-paced enough that you don't notice the number of cliches being invoked in this film.
Running Scared exists in that world of movies where there are no good guys - just bad guys, worse guys and worst guys.
Audience Reviews for Running Scared
One problem roles into a series of very unfortunate events in this thrilling Action movie. A grittier role than most of Walker's and one that suited him well. An evolving story, with some great visual effects from the camera shots. You don't have time to be bored!!!
