What it's about:

Princeton grad student Richie, believing he’s been swindled, travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block.

Richie is seduced by Block’s promise of immense wealth, until he learns the disturbing truth about his benefactor.

When the FBI tries to coerce Richie into helping to bring Block down, Richie faces his biggest gamble ever: attempting to outmaneuver the two forces closing in on him.

What the critics say:

"The film moves quickly initially, mostly to blow past the fact that its premise is hard to swallow, but it settles into an attractive pace as the tension rises."
- Matt Neal, The Standard

"Despite [its] stacked deck of a cast, Runner Runner adds up to little more than a charmless, paint-by-numbers thriller..."
- Andrew Barker, Variety

"Dull and perfunctory, this is a crime thriller that sets itself up as a revenge story but can't manage to drum up any excitement or suspense, and precious little revenge, either."
- MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher

"Makes up for its lacks of originality with more flash than a One Direction press conference."
- Elliott Noble, Sky Movies

Play. Or be played.

Hands of Stone

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
