good indie movie
6 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

--I decided to write a review of this movie to balance some other points of views; since it seems that many still do not understand what the cinema is all about (and even less indie one) and are adapted to Hollywood patterns or mainstream cinema. A commentary says he/she did not like the way the movie ended! and I guess what he/she expected ... By the way, the end is correct. It seems not to have understood the title either: "Boys on the run"; hence the story line of the film. The plot of the film clearly shows that most men do not really have much chance to say NO to the few opportunities you have with women. Instead women do have this opportunity and is well demonstrated here. And as always, "wins" which looks better, has more money; power or possibilities.

'As for the movie, the main character is a bit simple but with a raw inner fire plus he is in love; in love with a co-worker; she initially liked him but once she saw she had other chances, leaved all the prejudices apart and went from wanting to be "a girlfriend" to laid down with everyone (after to be discarded by other guy..) Then this foxy lady betrayed many times, him and to the company where she worked.

The acting is fine and the film is not too long like they say in some reviews. It is Worth watching.
