Quotes

[first lines]
Richie Furst: Everyone gambles. They may call it something else, like the stock market, or real estate. But make no mistake, if you're risking something, you're gambling. And if you're gambling, then I'm the guy you want to see.

Highly Entertaining Action Movie
19 January 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Princeton, the student Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake) is a former Wall Street broker that lost everything in the stock market crash a couple of years ago. Richie supports himself and pays the institution promoting online gambling in Princeton. When he is denounced by one student to Dean Alex Monroe (Bob Gunton), Richie receives an ultimatum and is forced to stop his activity. Further, he decides to bet all his savings to finance the rest of his graduation. However he loses all his money and discovers that he has been swindled by the powerful Ivan Block (Ben Affleck) that owns the site.

Richie travels to a gambling convention in Costa Rica expecting to meet Ivan, and he meets his lover and employee Rebecca Shafran (Gemma Arterton) that gives an invitation to him for the party. Richie meets Ivan that refunds him and invites Richie to work for him. Richie is seduced by the offer and moves to Costa Rica expecting to become rich. But soon Richie is pressed down by the unethical FBI Agent Shavers (Anthony Mackie) that wants to catch Ivan but has no jurisdiction in the corrupt country. Soon Richie finds the truth about the disloyal Ivan and he has to find a way out to escape from Ivan and Shavers using his intelligence and money.

"Runner Runner" is an underrated and highly entertaining action movie with a good mouse and cat story with twists and betrayals. Fortunately I did not pay attention to the bad reviews in IMDb and we saw "Runner Runner" yesterday in a group of three. Everybody enjoyed this film that is not a masterpiece but a good entertainment even for a Saturday night. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Aposta Máxima" ("Maximum Bet")
