Critic Reviews for Running with the Devil

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (19)

  • Ho-hum. Running with the Devil is yet another generic drug trade thriller that defies coherence, embraces clichés, and wastes the time and talent of Nicolas Cage.

  • What might in other hands have played as a tragedy is lent further emotional distance by the fact that there are almost no innocent victims here.

  • It almost doesn't matter that it doesn't make a lick of sense.

    September 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A tiresome parade of gory and sexist cliches that are, frankly, insulting to a cast that includes Laurence Fishburne, Barry Pepper, Adam Goldberg, Leslie Bibb and Clifton Collins Jr.

    September 19, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Plays like a flowchart in search of a pulse, a drama whose Traffic-like ambitions aren't matched by narrative inspiration.

    September 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • There's a lot going on in Running With the Devil, but also somehow absolutely nothing at all. It jumbles together too many storylines, drug movie clichés, flat characters, and an epic cast of B-movie all stars.

Audience Reviews for Running with the Devil

  • Aug 29, 2020
    Sort of a Traffic wannabe, Running with the Devil is a mediocre and underwhelming crime drama. When a shipment of tainted cocaine kills several people, drawing the attention of the DEA, the head of the operation sends a specialist to follow the next shipment to find out who's been tampering with it and to ensure that nothing goes wrong. Featuring Nicolas Cage, Laurence Fishburne, Leslie Bibb, and Barry Pepper, the cast is pretty strong; however, their performances are rather weak. And the script isn't that much better; there's no real character development and most of them don't even have names. The plot too is paper thin, requiring the audience to fill-in some of the missing pieces as to why and how things happen. Running with the Devil is problematic, yet it still delivers a bit of suspense and a few thrillers.
