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

The writer-director of "Run Lola Run," Tom Tykwer, must have heard the phrase "moving pictures" at an impressionable age and taken it literally.

What's more, this stylish, hugely likeable bit of adrenaline-pumped Euro-nonsense should shatter the illusions of those convinced that all subtitled fare is musty, wordy and dull.

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

Run Lola Run is the feverish, wish-fulfillment embodiment of everyone's unspoken dream...

Run Lola Run's power isn't in celebrating the giddy mixture of testosterone, drugs and new youth culture (i.e., electronica), but in taking the oldest of questions...

Though lacking the solidity of a full feature drama, this colorfully nerve-wracking art film is an interesting study in chance

Run Lola Run is loaded with cinematic effects that in the hands of someone less professional than Tykwer could have come across as the work of an NYU film student.

It's exhilarating. It's provocative. It's sexy. It's cinema.

Run Lola Run is more than the sum of its gimmicks: It has a real worldview.

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.

...a sort of power-pop variation on the mystical time-bending Euro-art movies made by the late Krzysztof Kieslowski.

Lola, played with unbounded energy in an utterly captivating performance by Franka Potente, does exactly that, run almost the entire movie.

In lesser hands this might have been just an extended rock clip but Tykwer's meticulous planning pays off brilliantly, leaving us with plenty to think about after the chase is over.
