Storyline

In BETTER START RUNNING, an unexpected series of events turns everyday store clerk Harley [Alex Sharp] into a wanted man - and even more unexpectedly, he finds himself on the run with the girl of his dreams (Analeigh Tipton). FBI Agent McFadden [Maria Bello] is determined to crush him and wants to teach her rookie partner [Karan Soni] how it's done. But while the agents pursue their culprit, our hero has loftier pursuits. He kidnaps his Vietnam vet grandfather [Jeremy Irons] to reunite him with the love of his life, picks up a try-hard beatnik hitchhiker [Edi Gathegi] with a secret of his own, and against all common sense follows a roadside attractions map with a mysterious history. As the agents get closer and closer with every stop, this eclectic band of misfits becomes an unlikely family, because sometimes a running start - can be a better start.

Good movie ... with ups and downs but in general it was a nice romantic thrilling road trip with a bit of dark comedy
14 October 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

The movie in general was fine mm even though the plot itself is a bit like "seen that before" but still had a lot of new twists and the dark comedy made it look fresh ... what i didn't like is some scenes it gets a bit slow and the character of "Agent McFadden" could have been more involved in the comedy ... which instead ..as i felt ruined the ending a little "no spoilers" .. but it wasn't the totally happy ending i hoped for.

The cast was fine .. i like Analeigh Tipton ,, not the first time she's ever done project like this ,, actually she's had her own career built around rom/com so she did okay in here .. Alex Sharp literally started acting provisionally last year, yet this is his his forth movie and two more are coming out next year ... and that is for a good reason.

Final thought ,, it is not the perfect action/comedy movie you're expecting but it had a lot of action bits and a good amount of still comedy,, so it passes with good 7 stars ;)
