Critic Reviews for Run

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

As a kind of action cartoon, the movie may work as a diversion for undemanding audiences. But it's really no more than a pinball machine, a brainless exercise in how to use action as a substitute for thought.

Run does, however, have the best death by a mechanical track rabbit scene ever recorded. That should be worth a footnote in the annuals of Hollywood when Run is long forgotten.

Audience Reviews for Run

The action is non-stop and Patrick Dempsey's one-liners are always perfect timed.
