Teenagers with a taste for the offbeat may enjoy.
| Original Score: 4/5
Run Lola Run takes a few moments to muse about the nature of time and the purpose of man... But its real agenda is the purpose of woman.
| Original Score: 4/4
Accompanied by techno music and populated by young and likeable "hip" protagonists, Run Lola Run is very pleasing to the eyes and ears of its viewers.
| Original Score: 6/10
despite its brittle techno-punk rhythms and spots of nihilism... this is sort of a throwback to the days before the talkies
| Original Score: A-
When you drop a reality-based attitude and go with the flow, Run Lola Run leaves you slightly breathless with admiration.
| Original Score: 3/4
Run Lola Run could very well be the punchiest piece of concept art to ever hit the silver screen, a shock-dose of German existential cinema you can ride.
Tom Twyker's frenzied directing is never dull, and casting his girlfriend [Franka] Potente in the role was a smart choice.
All the actors do perform excellently in their roles, but the star here is the director Tom Tykwer. The layering of the imagery, soundtrack, and the pacing all come together to outshine any performance by a single actor.
Compared to the alternate scenarios envisioned in Sliding Doors or Blind Chance, Run Lola Run comes across as pedestrian.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
this goofy, audacious, visually stylized omnibus of what-ifs that operates on its own peculiar logic, and powers along with the force of a truck on the Autobahn.
Run Lola Run is fun, fun, fun.
The populist bang of Speed meets snobbish, espresso-fueled elitism.
| Original Score: short
For writer and director Tykwer, the meaning of life is strongly colored by small incidents of coincidence.
Run Lola Run sets new standards for the cinema of hysteria.
...it's a stylistic triumph--swift, witty, consistently dazzling to behold.
Cleverly juggling the elements and encounters of a simple thriller scenario by using multiple viewpoints and a domino effect to create different destinies...
Not only does Lola run, she takes this hyperkinetic pop culture firecracker of a film with her.
| Original Score: 5/5
Every tick of the 81 minutes in Run Lola Run is pounding with kinetic energy and double-espresso adrenaline, like a marathon inside a rave inside a fusion reactor.
What a blast!
Run Lola Run is a high-octane pulse-pounder driven by style, speed, deviously clever flourishes, and a driving techno-beat--a film that moves so fast it almost breaks free of its limited orbit.
| Original Score: 9/10
