A thrill
29 June 2015 | by jasonlock-11608See all my reviews

I loved it. Simple and economic storytelling, The Runner moves forward with a constant, adrenaline-fuelled momentum. It's thrilling without resorting to action film clichés.

The film is always in the present, we're right there with him. The camera style and movement is compelling and tied so close to our lead we can't see another perspective. He's a great anti-hero. It's a survival film, the lead character (superbly played) can't stop, he keeps moving forward like an untamed animal, acting in the only way he knows how. And I appreciate the filmmaker's restraint in not revealing every little motivation he has.

This is based on a true story, which I wasn't aware of going into it, clearly the filmmaker understood the essence of the character was most important, not every minute detail, and I feel that's captured and conveyed brilliantly. I'm looking forward to checking out his other films
