Critic Reviews for Running with the Devil

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (5)

Ho-hum. Running with the Devil is yet another generic drug trade thriller that defies coherence, embraces clichés, and wastes the time and talent of Nicolas Cage.

Top Critic

What might in other hands have played as a tragedy is lent further emotional distance by the fact that there are almost no innocent victims here.

It almost doesn't matter that it doesn't make a lick of sense.

September 19, 2019 | Full Review…

A tiresome parade of gory and sexist cliches that are, frankly, insulting to a cast that includes Laurence Fishburne, Barry Pepper, Adam Goldberg, Leslie Bibb and Clifton Collins Jr.

September 19, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Plays like a flowchart in search of a pulse, a drama whose Traffic-like ambitions aren't matched by narrative inspiration.

September 18, 2019 | Full Review…

There's a lot going on in Running With the Devil, but also somehow absolutely nothing at all. It jumbles together too many storylines, drug movie clichés, flat characters, and an epic cast of B-movie all stars.
