critics consensus

More fun than a barrel of Jean-Paul Sartre, pic's energy riffs on an engaging love story and really human performances while offering a series of what-ifs and a blood-stirring soundtrack. Read critic reviews

Given 20 minutes to come up with the money, he calls his girlfriend, Lola (Franka Potente), who sprints through the streets of the city to try to beg the money out of her bank manager father (Herbert Knaup) and get to Manni before he does something desperate.

    Definitely a fun premise but one that gets more frustrating the more you think about it so I'd advise that one simply enjoy the movie's surface level pleasures and don't overthink it.

    One of the more unique movies I've seen in a long time, Run Lola Run is a fast-paced action thriller that is fueled by originality and nonstop fun. To explain the concept would be to ruin much of the fun of the movie, but it's a surprisingly simple idea that is taken in a very stylized and inventive direction. Run Lola Run is perfectly comfortable taking on the guise of a shallow but fun action movie, but in reality it's smart, thrilling, and all around superior to other similarly high-octane movies. Watch it knowing as little as possible about the plot, and you're likely to enjoy it as much as I did.

    Such a cool presentation and storyline. The hip and happening Tom Tykwer burst onto the scene with this gem starring the incomparable Franka Potente. Imaginative and original to the nth degree.

    Tom Tykwer's energic Run Lola Run, have terrific realistic actings and become a unforgettable film, an exciting plot that work very well with the surrealistic soundtrack. Run Lola Run is a scary and great dramatic "Groundhog Day ". Fresh.
