Great
11 March 2006 | by Johnny10See all my reviews

I never have been a Paul Walker fan, but when i found out the talented Wayne Kramer was making a new movie i had to go see it. I enjoyed this movie very much. Many people say that it was too violent and profane. I think the violence and use of profanity fit the movie's dark atmosphere very well. I think this is one of the best action/mobster movie of the year so far, if the movie is still playing near you and you are over 13 i think you should give this one a try, the movie is full of twists and turns, although i think the final twist should of been left out and i think some of the vulgar language could of been left out, but those are minor issues.So if you are looking for a fun, action packed, dark,edgy, and very stylish film i suggest you go see Running Scared.
