Audience Reviews for Run


Criminally underrated, Run is an early 90's action thriller starring Patrick Dempsey, and one I've been fond of ever since I first caught it on T.V. as a kid. It indeed bombed at the box office and the title is uber-simplistic, so perhaps that adds to the unpopularity of the film. Nonetheless, Run is solidly performed, concise, witty, briskly paced, at times funny and suspenseful throughout with well choreographed and sharp action sequences. It's early 90's release dates it a bit here and there, but as a thriller Run more than works, and it's most definitely a hidden gem.

Action adventure that breaks no new ground but it's a pretty good popcorn flick that's title is as advertised.

The action is non-stop and Patrick Dempsey's one-liners are always perfect timed.
