An exuberant and creative film game that amps things up for a run of nonstop action that tantalizes the senses and bombards the mind with an adrenaline rush of stimuli.

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.

it is a German film that is being hailed for its stylishness, even to the degree that it's worth seeing just for its look...

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.

Interspersed with Lola's zigzag swiftness are moments when the action shifts into trancelike tableaux.

It's never, ever boring. And, importantly, it knows exactly when to quit.

Telling the plot three times, with cunning variations, Tykwer mixes pixilated photos, split screens, cartooning, the works.

Run, Lola, Run is a film I could not take my eyes off of. It's too good a movie to be true. It has everything...

Run Lola Run is a high-octane pulse-pounder driven by style, speed, deviously clever flourishes, and a driving techno-beat--a film that moves so fast it almost breaks free of its limited orbit.

Every tick of the 81 minutes in Run Lola Run is pounding with kinetic energy and double-espresso adrenaline, like a marathon inside a rave inside a fusion reactor.

Should be caught on the big screen so you can gape wide-eyed and not believe what you're seeing.
