Extremely Flawed, but Very Enjoyable for the Fans of the Cast
21 September 2019 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

I'm a simple guy, I see Nicolas Cage - I watch the movie. Furthermore, he's joined by Laurence Fishburne, Barry Pepper, Clifton Colins Jr. and some other previously seen & heard names. To be honest, it's easy to get into these thrillers, because I already know what to expect, all it takes is 2 minutes long look at the cast, director, plot and ...the poster.

"Running with the Devil" is not a great movie, but it's hard not to enjoy it. Lets get the bad qualities off the table first. Despite taking place in over 15 different locations & across two continents, story lacks any narrative inspiration, rhytm or complexety. It doesn't even make sense at some points. The structure is choppy, the climax is weak & there's not nearly enough good old fashioned action. However, we have come here for the cast. It's indeed an enjoyable romp of many characters - Laurence Fishburne snorting coke and being extremely horny, Adam Goldberg being a bit*h, Nicolas Cage doing ...his thing, and so on and so forth. Seriously though, while the script is very, very weak and directing uninspiring, "Running with the Devil" is kept afloat with a steady pacing dragged on by the amount of characters and locations, with the awesome cast doing their thing & with a pretty fine cinematography and (sometimes questionable) editing.

You will be running with the devil because Cage & Fishburne runs with it & later You're going to be running for another movie. I'm sure that I can positively recommend this flick to anyone who's a fan of the cast and/or a fan of this particular & familiar low budget average thriller niche. The key is knowing what you'll get. I enjoyed this 5/10 quite a lot.
