In fact, it turns out, not surprisingly, that it is boring to watch someone run for 87 minutes...

The populist bang of Speed meets snobbish, espresso-fueled elitism.

But it's just one more example of filmmaking style over substance - the brisk pace and gaudy visual style only mask the fact that there's not a whole lot of story here.

If an audience exists at all for Run Lola Run, it will likely be rabid video-game buffs with a passion for re-set.

Compared to the alternate scenarios envisioned in Sliding Doors or Blind Chance, Run Lola Run comes across as pedestrian.

despite its brittle techno-punk rhythms and spots of nihilism... this is sort of a throwback to the days before the talkies

A low-budget no-brainer, Run Lola Run is a lot more fun than Speed, a big-budget no-brainer...

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.

We get fast and slow motion, crane shots, split screens, handheld cinematography, tracking shots, lateral wipes, jump cuts, candy coloring, MTV-style editing, whip pans, still photographs and rapid-fire montages. You name it.

Here, he captures all our best qualities -- energy, resourcefulness, independence -- and he does so in the shared visual vernacular of Xers: music videos, video games, and television.

A giant pinball game of a movie, Run Lola Run may be superficial and relatively meaningless, but it sure is great fun.
