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.

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.

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

When you drop a reality-based attitude and go with the flow, Run Lola Run leaves you slightly breathless with admiration.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

It's a furiously kinetic display of pyrotechnics from the director Tom Tykwer, who fuses lightning-fast visual tricks, tirelessly shifting styles and the arbitrary possibilities of interactive storytelling...

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